Exactly one month ago today. Exactly 4 weeks ago last Thursday.
you have truly has shown me what it means to LOVE, and I am forever grateful!
You will always be a big part of my heart, and I will continue to pray for you,
sweet boy! I LOVE YOU more than you know!!! Logan
That was a horrific day. It was the worst day of my life that I can remember. I cried more that day than I think I had ever had before, and my heart was torn more that day that I care to think about. For those new readers of mine, you can read about it here – hardest post I have ever had to write.
Healing from those events is still taking place for many. Many families are still in the midst of deciding the next step to take. And many warriors are now plugging on for others who need help desperately too.
As for me, I am mostly healed. I have become okay with where
is, at least
he’s getting cared for a lot better and will never go hungry! He will be loved,
and maybe someday adopted by a Ukrainian family. But there are still times when
I can’t hold back the tears, like when I am listening to my Meredith Andrew’s
CD, and Logan’s song (read on, it’s explained below) comes on. Of course it
just happens to always be on at the same time I am putting on my Logan necklace, and then
the tears come. Logan
Note: Logan is the little boy who is plastered all over my header who I met, held, and played with last summer on a mission trip. He stole my heart in the short time I was with him, and is the one who propelled me into the world of orphan advocating.
|My Logan necklace. I got it from a fundraiser Sterling's mama did to help bring him home!|
Someday, when I return to
, I hope I am able to visit
my sweet boy, and give him all the love I wish I had given him more of when I
met him. But part of me doesn’t want to see him for his sake. I’m quite sure
that he will be a little frightened by this strange lady who talks weird, is a
crying blubbery mess, and is squeezing the living daylights out of him! J
Yet I dream of and long for that day… even if it never happens. Ukraine
That sweet boy, Logan, changed my life forever. He opened my eyes to the plight of the orphan, and those with special needs (we didn’t have either of my brothers home at the time I met him). Who knew that a ½ hour (probably less) with a sweet 2 year old could change me forever?
Please take a couple minutes to watch this video I made for him, with “his” song.
I couldn’t have changed a word if I rewrote this song for him, so I’ve dubbed it
song. That’s why this blog is named after the song, and Logan , because he has shown me what it
means…to LOVE! Logan
