“Orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they’re not real before you hold them in your arms. But once you do, everything changes.” – David Platt
I feel so fortunate to be the mama to one little Russian treasure. Three years ago today, I stood up, with shaky legs, in a Moscow courtroom to tell them how much I wanted him. And in those almost-three years home? He has thrived.
He has gone from the reserved, scared little boy we met…
But, what if he never had the chance? What if the process had taken us longer? Or we started later or…?
He’d still be waiting.
Can you imagine erasing his last 3 years? All of the love? Hugs? Kisses? Comfort? Warm bed? Food in his belly?
No? You wouldn’t wish that for Gus?
Well, it’s the reality for his friends.
Will you take a few minutes and watch this trailer for the movie To the Moon and Back?
