have you ever....

listened to the cries of an abused child? listened to the story of someone who's never been loved? someone
who hasn't slept in the same bed, heck, even the same house for more than a few months? i have. last night
in fact. i hate neglect. i hate the foster system. i hate the pain. the tears. the nightmares. the injustice.
the only thing i hold onto is the promise. the promise that this is not it.

Wow, I'd never heard that song! And what a great video! Thanks for sharing, and thanks for sharing your pain and frustration. I'm so sorry that these things exist, but you are an amazing woman to open your home and heart to this pain.

God bless you, sweet Kristal. And God bless little Matthew. What an amazing boy he must be. I ache for him and his pain. He will surely be so blessed after enduring this journey. I stand in awe and wonder of what you are doing...thank you.

I am moved beyond words with tears streaming down my face. i want to go wake up my 4 munchkins and snuggle them real tight and never let go!
