An Inspiration

From time to time I get letters that just make me feel good. I write the blog and I do not spend much time thinking about the effects of what I do. So I am so happy when I hear from people and how the blog effects them. Blessings on the side. I remember a woman writing and saying that waiting for her child became so much easier after she read the blog. What more can one ask than to make another life easier. I was really moved by that. Recently I got this particularly sweet letter. Because of what I do with the babies, I get to inspire this young mind.

Dear Amanda,

I am Phoebe, I live in Brisbane, Australia and I am inspired by your work with your orphanage, it has always been a dream of mine to open an orphanage in China. I really enjoyed your blog, as caring for babies and toddlers is something I really enjoy. I was wondering if you let volonteers from over seas (such as Australia) help you? I am only 13 at the moment but in the future I would be over joyed to help out with your amazing work in the orphanage.

Keep up the amazing work

You are incredible. You are an 'institution' in the adoption blog community.
I was very touched by this girl's letter. What an amazing heart she has and incredible role model in you.
