An anniversary(of sorts!)

Jack was born December 22nd (estimated), 2009.  Two years ago today, at 5 months old, he was abandoned, at the entrance to a park.  He was taken to the police station and from there delivered to the orphanage.  That's the point at which his story is recorded.  So many things go through my mind and it's hard to leave them in a place marked, "unknown".  Did his mother(or caregiver) realize his condition was getting worse and feel this was his only chance of survival?  Only God can minister to the pain of losing your child.  Our prayer is that she has comfort in knowing she did what she felt was best for Zan Shi.  Having had a foster baby with the same congenital heart defect, I know she must have been scared when he turned blue.  His condition was diagnosed on the day of his admission to the orphanage so he must have been showing signs of distress. We remember his family (whoever, and wherever they are), especially today.
