Tell me what it is you want to do with your one wild and precious life? -mary oliver

We've all witnessed them in our time.  Seen the beauty of what was, now is.  In the midst of tragedy, lies a story waiting to be told.  Changing a life for that one soul who listens to the story, reacts to the story, choosing to pave their own path by making a difference for one.

Carrington's Courage is one little girl's story, rocking the international adoption community to its core.  Carrington arrived in the U.S. late last week.  Her family visited her in the orphanage, and saw her bundled up in multiple layers, as is custom in Eastern Europe.  When Carrington left the orphanage the very last time, it was only then her family saw the desperate state she was in.  Carrington is 3 years old, weighing in at 11 pounds.  Upon arrival to the U.S, the Burman family wasn't reunited.  Instead, Carrington immediately went to the hospital and brought grown men to their knees in tears. To see a precious, life wasting away...

In all tragedy, there is hope and celebration.  Carrington is touching lives and no one but God can write this story.  She is holding steady.  She's not gaining weight, and not losing weight.  Carrington is being lifted up in prayer around the world and a network of mamas are working to provide help in their city.  I've linked a button on my sidebar so you can visit the updates on the blog, my friend Sarah is writing for her family.

Please pray for Carrington.  Read her blog updates.  Think about her daily and love on your own children.  Live in the moment.  Love...

Carrington's Courage...
