Thinking of the Children

As we near closer and closer to our court date (just two more days to go!), the excitement builds.  We've successfully bought every used baby item for $1 or less available in Iquique/Alto Hospicio and we think we may be ready.  However, our happiness is stunted a little at the recent email that Anna received in her inbox from a fellow Columban - a priest working in the Philippines with human rights issues. He helps run a center for children rescued from prisons and sex slavery.  The children's stories moved us to tears.  There are many children in the world who lead lives feeling unwanted and unloved. We remember and pray for all of them today.
