50 million

a boy named Sue
      UNICEF estimates that there are over 50 million orphaned children in China. 50 million. That means there are 50 million reasons for me to go back to China, but I only need one. 
      My mama fell in love with Sue. He was the most easy going baby there. He loved to be cuddled and has the cutest smile. When my mom would walk into the orphanage, the nannies would hand her Sue, "her baby."  This is a quote from my mom's facebook page 
    "My heart aches to hold you again my little one. The miles are to far! I send you love with a prayer that God finds you parents to love you as much as He and I do my little Sue!"
my Al
      My little guy Al, we cant remember his Chinese name so we called him Al, like alligator, because he was teething and tried to bite everything. It breaks my heart to see a baby 2 years 3 months with a bilateral cleft lip and cleft palate, well knowing that surgery could have been done a while ago. he is beefy so he's getting  food in, but his life could be so much better with surgery. I wish I could have brought this little guy home and gave him all the love and services that he desperately needs, unfortunately I'm too young.  I love you Al, each day I pray that you are matched with a family that will love you more that I do. 

And if you need a few more reasons to go.... here you go.
