I'd like to introduce you to some people who really do a great job and following this principle.
The Lunnens happen to be my sister-in-law and clan. They have six kids. But they still have more love to give. They are adopting a special needs boy from Eastern Europe. You can read about their adventure here One Little Boy. I am awestruck with the generosity, love and kindness that comes out of them. I encourage you to read their story.
