This is a post that I wrote about all our foster children.
One of the first things I notice when they arrive are their eyes.
They are haunted.
Often they have seen things that are darker than I will ever see.
When you play---they watch you---not sure if you are safe.
They don't trust adults, or they trust them too much.
When they wake from a nap their eyes are clouded from a dream they can't shake.
But, when I sing to them........
Songs about a Jesus who will always be there for them..........
Even if I can't be.............
Their eyes soften and relax.
They seem to instinctively know Him.
Even though they haven't seen Him with their eyes.
