Everything changed when we started the process to adopt Tariku. Little things and big things, they all changed. We are completely different now than we were almost 3 years ago.
3 years ago if the earthquake would’ve hit Haiti I regret to admit that I would’ve done little but cry over the pictures and the babies.
Today is so different. I haven’t slept well since it happened. Restless to help in any way I can. But everything I do doesn’t feel enough. There is a huge part of me that wants to jump on a plane and go help. To physically reach out and help our Haitian brothers and sisters.
But I can’t do that right now. So instead I go places like:
Just go somewhere, do something. Because seriously, these things need to disturb us to the point of action. You don’t need to adopt to finally figure out that your humanity is and should be directly linked with the humanity around you. I did but you don’t because you’re better people than I am.
So let’s just do this together, alright?
