“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

My daughter and son-in-law are in the throes of adopting a child from Haiti. They've completed all the paperwork, jumped all the hoops, and now their file sits with the Haitian authorities for action. We wait. Week ten. We wait ... my grandchild needs to be here in our family and his/her forever home.

While we wait, my daughter had hoodies made to fund-raise to offset the formidable costs associated with the adoption. To order a hoodie or donate to help defray the mounting costs, go to https://www.gofundme.com/poundfamily  Thank you. I need my grandchild. 

There are playgrounds and parks we need to explore, ice cream we must enjoy, playschool and Sunday school to attend. But most of all my grandchild needs his/her family. Little one, you are already here in my heart. Love is all that matters to me now.
