My Inspiration...Chinese Starfish

This is the woman who inspires me to be something more and to do more than I ever thought I could. I know that she inspires many of you too. I'm talking about Amanda at 'Chinese Starfish'. I am completely in awe of her. If you are not familiar with her work, I strongly encourage you to visit her blog. She runs a foster care home in China where she cares for Chinese SN babies. She loves and nurtures the tiniest souls, searches for ways to pay for their much needed surgeries and is the one who holds their tiny hands as they go through them. She fills them with love and when they are strong enough, she sends them off to their forever families, but carries them still in her heart.

She is asking for people to help her children. She is asking for sponsors. Please search within yourselves and do what you can. Please help, one of these children could be yours.

Amanda is truly amazing. I follow her blog. When my dh went to China in March we had the privilige to do some small things to help. I would love to go back to China and meet her. To be a volunteer in her home for a day would be an honor!
