The streets in Moscow looked like this today as 20,000 people lined the streets to protest Russia’s ban on US adoptions. (USA Today article)
I can’t being to tell you how much my heart hurt when I found out about the ban. I wrote about it. I waited with bated breath as talk of an exemption of special needs kids looked to pass, and I prayed for the rest of the children waiting for their parents.
Their parents. Many that I know. Who have done the paperwork, jumped through the hoops, left pictures of their families and a promise to return to waiting children in Russian orphanages.
With those parents, I thank the Russian People who did this today. Who saw this injustice, and spoke out. Thank you.
