There was a family adopting their son from Serbia on about the same time-line as ours. They had more favor with USCIS and ended up bringing their son home a month before we were able to bring Sofija home. The Mom blogged about their journey and she titled her blog “Throwing Starfish” The poem Throwing Starfish has always been a hard pill for me to swallow. I want to do it all! Accepting that I, personally, do not have the power to mother every orphan in the world is somewhat heart-wrenching.
However, I usually get to the end of my days and wish I had just a few more minutes or hours to spend with the husband and children God has given me.
Today I stumbled across this video. It’s Matthew West telling the story behind his new song One Less.
Once again….grab a box of tissue.
