Meet one of my heros!

In a week or so, I'll inundate this blog with more pictures of my boy, but today I received the link to the pictures from our agency director's March visit.  There was a treasure in there;)  A picture of Christian and the nanny to whom he is attached.  They call Christian "her boy" at the orphanage...she calls him "tresor" which means treasure.  She is amazing and I'll forever be indebted to her.  Let me introduce you to Imelda.  I have no idea how she does her job, she's been working at AUBE for 20 years.  How does she love these babies and then pass them on to call someone else mama?  I can't communicate well with her, but she has a sacrificial love we all could learn much from.  She loves and puts these kids needs above her own...selflessness....what love REALLY is, right?  I have no doubt that large treasure awaits her in heaven.  We often elevate eloquent speakers or gifted writers as the heros in the church, but I believe true heros are people like Imelda, who love wholeheartedly even when it must hurt..


  1. Oh, I love this! Praise God for Imelda and her love for the orphans! Love you!

  2. I haven't been able to look at blogs for a long time, so I am so glad you posted this one on FB. What a precious lady and such a precious little boy. What a joy to read something so uplifting today. Thank you. Praise God for His workers and the joy He brings when we give out of ourselves. I love Imelda!!! She is a hero.
