Exciting New Reality Show

This weekend, I found a video on a blog by a college student in the mid-west. She was an intern in the China Care program when Li'l Empress was waiting to be united with us. Reading her blog has given me a peek into her passion for orphans and a heart for children in China. We're especially grateful to her because she was instrumental in helping us access the 60+ pictures and a few videos that were part of Li'l Empress's files while in the China Care program. I have thoroughly enjoyed our interchanges, and like having a connection to someone who cared for and prayed over our girl before she came home. It's another one of those little treasures from My Father that many adoptive moms don't get to experience. I don't take it lightly, it is a gift.

Anyway, the video. I found this video on her blog!

*Edited to clarify: This video is a ministry that she was highlighting on her blog, not one that she herself is working with. She's just really great at highlighting ministries that are doing God's work in the lives of kids around the world. Sorry for the confusion!

The Children's Heart Project is a ministry of Samaritan's Purse. Recently they launched a new reality show following the lives of children who are receiving life-saving, life-changing care for heart conditions. I haven't found the show on any of my local listings, but you can watch videos on the Children's Heart website, here. I'm so thankful for this young woman's blog, that exposes me to other ministries and organizations that are being Jesus to the children of the world.

WOW - now that I've calmed down - I'm wondering what I was more touched by, the gift that she made to your family - or the gift of her ministry - or both.....oh so much power in that short video....how rarely do you see Witness like that in the world?

Thanks for sharing that with us -

hugs - aus and co.
