Today I have spent hours (literally) browsing various websites for non-profits like World Vision and Preemptive Love Coalition. I felt like I was drowning in a sea of beautiful children’s faces. There are just so many of them, and I feel so helpless to reach them. Dave and I plan to begin supporting one of these organizations monthly, but that ~$30 seems like a drop in the bucket when you see how great the need is.

I’ve known for years that I wanted to work with children, but I’ve also discovered that the full-time nanny thing is not for me. I am also pretty confident that I’m not called to teach in a school (public or private). What does that leave me with? I can’t imagine ever landing the kind of dream job that the people at World Vision or PLC have. If I were still single, I could apply for a summer internship, but I’m not.

I feel so aimless. I am passionate about serving children in need, but I have no idea how to  do that without sponsoring 10+ kids a month and causing us to go into debt. Ideas?
