Do you ever have one of those weeks? You know the ones that the harder you fight for God the harder things get. I was staying pretty strong up until this evening when something little happened that just made everything that happened this week start coming out in tears.

I was sitting crying and then kids started screaming. My parents are away for the evening so I decided I was in need of some quiet time and well I ran away for a little while (OK, I'm still gone but I will return soon).

I was sitting here playing Bejeweled 3 and talking to God. I just know God has to have fun with that game too right? I was asking why? Why does my heart break for the orphan EVERYDAY? Why do I fight when I'm sure people get tired of listening? Why do I spend hours and hours making pendants when there are days I would rather be doing other things. Why do I cry for an adoptive family I have never met because they found out their daughter was moved to a mental institution, A PLACE SHE SHOULD NOT BE.

I decided to hop on Facebook for a little bit and guess what God had waiting for me. God used a Facebook friend to remind me of why I fight, why I cry and why I WILL NOT GIVE UP.

Watch this video and you will see why because this is what happens to most of the children listed on when they turn 4 or 5. This is why I fight!
