What a beautiful post! Please read this. I would copy and paste it here but I am not sure if that's plagiarism!
A little background information- this girl, named Katie, lives in Uganda with roughly 14 adopted children and serves the people of her village in various ways. I've been so enriched by her deepened perspective on life (and her deepened love for Christ) as a result of being exposed to some of life's realities that we in America don't always come face to face with. I hope it blesses, challenges, and encourages you to look at Jesus.
