Here is a great post by a young women who has taken God's word seriously and obeyed His command to care for the orphan and the widow in their distress. She moved to Uganda a few years ago to be a teacher and has since adopted 14 daughters.
I think her post is an awesome reminder that the children we have been given are the children that God has chosen to bless us with (great reminder when one of them wets my bed-for the second time this week-after crawling in to snuggle at 3 am or another one throws up in the backseat).
Also a great reminder when they tell you, "Of all the mommies in the world, I would pick you."
Then Esau looked around and saw the women and children: "And who are these with you?"
Jacob said, "The children that God saw fit to bless me with." Genesis 33:5
