Love laying with my two in my belly kickin' like crazy and the other one cuddled up on me after a day of being away from each other.

While laying with my kiddos, I watched the fundraiser for Haiti. Truthfully, I have avoided the news because I get so emotional hearing and seeing these tragic photos and events happening. It makes me so badly want to take all my things and just hop on a plane to help these poor people. I so badly want to hold those babies that have no mothers to hold them anymore. On the telethon, it said that BEFORE the earthquake there was over 380,000 orphans. I cry and hurt just thinking if I wasn't there to hold John or this new baby that is on it's way...I hurt for myself and for them.
Matt says we should adopt a Haitian baby...I rolled my eyes and told him he was crazy since I am about to have a baby. But secretly, I think I would do it in a heartbeat. I asked John tonight if he would want a Haitian brother or sister (maybe both) and he nodded yes. My eyes welled up hoping that he will always have that attitude. Below are some pictures of the tragedies in Haiti. The picture of the little boy...I could just cuddle him up and bring him home in a second!
I am thankful that God has given me such a sympathetic heart, but sometimes, I wish that I could turn it off. Oh well...maybe I will look up adoptions in Haiti now...we'll see.
Good night...

I feel the same way Jodi. It just melts my heart seeing those pictures. I wish there was more I could do for them! Some of my friends and I are sending care packages today but I still wish I could do more!
