How can you tell the difference between a need and a call? Sometimes the need is the call...but sometimes not! There is a 7 year old boy on our adoption agencys waiting list. His name is Yun Peng. He is living with a foster family, he is smart, and very good! I have a real burden for this boy. I have been trying hard to get him a family. I pray for him it seems nearly every waking hour. I can not think of anything else right now. His file will be returned to China next week. His chances of getting a family are to be honest very very small! Who, after all would adopt a 7 year old boy, when they could easily get a 2 year old boy, or 1 year old girl even? My agency says they could even try to get China to give us a waiver, so we could adopt him. Juergen, being the one who must consider sanity, says "no". How can we know if my burden is only a burden to pray, or a call to adopt him. Certainly God could not only call me, with out also giving Juergen this call too! I am praying for Yun Pengs family. My heart will be so sad if they return the file of this special special boy!
