This article picked up from the Associated Press made front page just below the fold in the Orange County Register today. No wonder. It has created a firestorm across the internet from the moment it hit the press. Several blogs have posted about the barrage (literally hundreds) of negative, ignorant, and even hateful comments people have posted to the original article. I'm not going to post that link because I don't want to guide anyone to such ugly words, but I'll tell you what, it broke my heart to read some of these horrible statements... I couldn't get it off my mind. Why would people be so blatantly against such a beautiful act of love and mercy? It blows my mind.
BUT, I love that the issue is being highlighted right now! God bless the Hendersons, the Hehns, and families like them who are taking these lovely little ones who would surely die if they stayed in their home country and giving them a family! May they be weighed down with jeweled crowns in Heaven!
I don't know if the Lord plans to entrust an HIV+ child to us someday, but if He did I'd say, "Hallelujah!" and embrace that little babe as if he/she was bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh!
