I must confess to a strange thing I do. I send my love to foster kids waiting to be adopted on AdoptUSKids. I look at their pictures, say a little prayer for them, and then send them my love wherever they may be. It’s a heart felt wish for them to find their forever families, to know they are valued, to stay strong despite all the tough curveballs life has thrown them.
Well, I’ve kept this secret to myself for quite some time. Because isn’t this a little weird? My husband rolls his eyes when I say I think loving these waiting kids from far away makes a difference.
But then I watched the movie Interstellar and Anne Hathaway has this monologue about love. She explains that love and gravity are the only two things that transcend time and space. So, apparently other people feel like you can send love across long distances and that love can make a tangible difference in that person’s life.
So tell me, is looking at AdoptUSKids and giving my heart to the foster kids a little strange? A lot strange? Or like a prayer, completely capable of working a mini miracle?
