A young child may latch onto a pacifier (me) or an old blanket (#1son), a stuffed animal (#2 son) and carry it with them wherever they go. When the child is lonely, scared or tired, this "item" is comforting. Eventually, the child learns to let go of the item and becomes aware of his or her ability to cope with these unsettling feelings.
As an adult, I may revert to fear, anxiety or doubt when I am faced with a life challenge. The security of old thought patterns may be more comforting to me than taking a different path. However, as I learn to let go and let God, I find that God has instilled in me all that I need to face life with confidence and composure.

I don't know John Bul, but I do know Bullen Timo. His story is very similar. Thank you Jesus for bringing us together for a brief meeting in 2006, email communication in 2007 - 2008 and now that I can be his American mama while he is getting his education. He will forever be my adopted son and part of our family.
