I Can't Imagine.....

-What it's like to live in an orphanage.

-What it's like to have no one to tuck you into bed at night, give you kisses and hugs, and teach you about Jesus.

-What you must have felt like a few days ago when you learned that you had been chosen......that someone had picked you to spend Christmas in America.

-What thoughts were running through your head as you prepared for a month-long trip to a foreign country.

-How you're feeling right now, as you are in the air on what is most likely your first plane ride ever.

-What you will be feeling as you meet total strangers at the airport, who hug you and speak to you in a foreign language and whisk you off to their van and take you home with them.

-What it will be like for you to learn and experience all kinds of new things and meet lots of different people and "family members" over the next few weeks.

-What it will be like to say goodbye to your temporary papa, mama, brothers and sisters, and leave America to go back to your own country, where you are once again an orphan.

-What a mess I'm going to be when I have to put you back on that plane at the end of the month.

We can't wait to meet you, dear boy! Only a few more hours........
