A country in mourning.


A country is in mourning, 1.3 Billion people were asked to observe 3 minutes of silence Monday as China begins 3 days of mourning.The national flags are flying half staff and the Olympic torch relay has been suspended.The flag flying half staff in Tiananmen square.


Devastation..




I haven't written about the earthquake prior to this post, I didn't have the words, I still don't.
The scope of this tragedy is beyond me, my heart is so saddened for the victims, their families and for my daughter's birthplace.
Jillian was born in Fuling, we have received word there was minimal damage to their orphanage and the babies are fine. What they can't tell us of course is if my daughter's birth family was affected, if they suffered loss, we will never know, this is so difficult.
I have prayed for them.

Words cannot explain how I feel when I look and read about the devastation in China.

I cannot imagine what they are dealing with and how many people have lost their family members. It is so heartbreaking.

There are no words. The pictures are so heart breaking. I keep looking at K & A and thinking how lucky we are to have them in our lives. I could not imagine my little babies not having a warm bed and safe shelter. Oh, it's so sad...thank you for posting.

Kerri, I too haven't posted about it because I can't even think about it without going to a scary place in my head and heart. I pray for these people every day.

Wanted to also thank you for the wonderful comments you've left on my blog (and others!) for/about me. You are too, too kind...

And happy belated birthday as well, you gorgeous gal :)

It is difficult to find words - and you must feel it even more deeply, thinking of your daughter's birth family. I haven't been able to talk about the earthquake out loud without breaking down - it's just too hard to imagine the pain of so many people - so many parents and children.
