A year later....

I posted the following post a year ago this month.... It was interesting to go back and see who is home now, who has a family, and who has a new picture. But the part that broke my hear was how many of them were still waiting, a year later. (Captions in italics under the pictures are updates I added for this post.)
My face may be different
Jimmy - still waiting.
But my feelings the same
Tabitha - still waiting.
I laugh and I cry
Mark - still waiting.
And I take pride in my gains
Brigita - HOME!
I was sent here among you
Rebekah - still waiting.
To teach you to love
Lilly - still waiting.
As God in the heavens
Lizzy - mama is working to bring her home!
Looks down from above
Ilya - still waiting.
To Him I'm no different
Maxim - his family is working to bring him home!
His love knows no bounds
Lyla - HOME!!!
It's those here among you
Dennis - still waiting.
In cities and towns
Timofey - still waiting.
That judge me by standards
Robert - HOME!
That man has imparted
Chandler - HOME!
But this family I've chosen
Tory - still waiting.
Will help me get started
Orion - his family is working to bring him home!
For I'm one of the children
Jonathan - still waiting.
So special and few
Meredith - her family is working to get her!
That came here to learn
Lucy - HOME!
The same lessons as you
Artem K - his family is working to bring him home!
That love is acceptance
Vika - her family is working to bring her home or she is home?? 
It must come from the heart
Tanya - still waiting.
We all have the same purpose
Nadine - HOME with her family - adopted domestically.
Though not the same start
To live and embrace
Cyril K - still waiting.
And I'll do it as you do
Bobby - still waiting. - His Birthday is tomorrow!!
But at my own pace
Robyn - still waiting.
