It hurts for all of those who don't have food, clean water, a home, someone to love about and care for them, and those who feel all alone. My heart hurts for the little boy and little girl I so badly want to adopt but don't have the finances to; my heart hurts for all of the other little boys and little girls who are growing up on the streets or in an orphanage. My heart just hurts Going to Ethiopia changed me and for that I am so thankful, but I want to change the world and finances are what is keeping me from being able to do more

I think everyone feels that way to one degree or another. There's so much that we would love to do but can't because of some reason.

Thank you everyone. My heart just aches to do more. There are so many people who have it so much worse than most of us, yet we complain because our coffee took two minutes (at Starbucks) or complain when our kids and spouse take all of the hot water. Unfortunately there are people, even in the US, who go days without food let alone a Starbucks coffee and the only water they have is cold 24/7 (and possibly contaminated). My heart just aches for them I am committing my life to making a bigger difference somehow...I am just waiting to figure that somehow out.

I know how it feels to hurt because you want to do something but can't. I've been praying to win the lottery so I can help children in the hospitals who are sick. I literally will sob until my head hurts because I can't do anything. I just want to help and give, give, give.

I promise if we win that Powerball, I'll be in contact with you

I firmly believe our voices are the most powerful currency in the world. Raising our voices, convincing others to pitch in, telling the stories of those muted by poverty and circumstance can make a difference. Your posts here have already reached so many of us, honey. The ripples will continue to spread, even if you don't get to see how far they go.

I "adopted" a child through "Feed the Children" many years ago (on my second child as the first one grew too old for the program) costs me a mere $25 a month and provides so much for my little man...I get updates/letters/pictures every now and then and a whole lot of satisfaction knowing that I am helping him out......HUGS
