I have come to the end of my Journey to Bring Home Blossom Jaylynn. On April 17th, I received my Travel Approval, along with the most devastating news that my baby had been hospitalized, and it was found that she has a brain tumor. She is now back at the orphanage and deteriorating. I have prayed so hard since the news, my heart broken, my head hurts. My daughter has opened so many hearts, the outpouring of prayers and love has been overwhelming. If she has brought attention to the need of orphans, then she has done God's purpose, with so much love, I will always remain your Mother, and cherish the bond we shared from afar, never able to hold you in my arms, but forever in my heart. Your daddy is waiting for you in Heaven. My sweet daughter in China.

Strange is our situation here upon earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to a divine purpose. From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: That we are here for the sake of others...for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy.
Many times a day, I realize how much my outer and inner life is built upon the labors of people, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received.
