It is move in day. It is the next chapter of my life. I’m ready to take on the world, and begin this road to Pediatric Oncology; so I thought. I was a freshman biology major who had idolized the idea of curing cancer. It was in the midst of my first semester that God took away all that I had built up for myself the past few years.
For an entire year, I was clueless as to what God’s calling was for the rest of my life. I thought, what could be more rewarding than aiding kids with cancer? All that God had laid before me was that this life was not for my desires but for His.
I went to Haiti the Summer of 2014 on a missions trip, and God was extremely vivid. I left Haiti with a piece of my heart still there with the orphans. Their sweet faces, simply begging to be loved. God has planted a seed in my heart to provide those kids with a place to live while on this earth.
I am going into my sophomore year at Texas A&M University as a Psychology major to eventually become an adoption counselor. I plan to apply for internships for 2015, and gain experience regarding adoption. After I earn my B.S. in Psychology, the plan is to get my masters in social work. With this, I pray that I will have an impact on the children of this world.
