The fact that many of these children cannot return an ounce of love in this lifetime doesn’t seem to matter or drain the life out of Chris and Sally. They are committed to the Savior and loving their brothers and sisters; that is the bottom line. This perspective seems to take them to a place far beyond "what about me" or "I need time for myself," and they certainly don’t have a minute to judge anyone else or worry about being offended.
Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin said, “At the final day the Savior will not ask about the nature of our callings. He will not inquire about our material possessions or fame. He will ask if we ministered to the sick, gave food and drink to the hungry, visited those in prison, or gave succor to the weak. When we reach out to assist the least of Heavenly Father’s children, we do it unto him. That is the essence of the gospel of Jesus Christ” (Ensign, November 2007).
Chris and Sally converted to the LDS Church and embraced the gospel as young adults. Together they have committed their lives to assisting "the least of Heavenly Father’s children."
I have seen the "essence" of the gospel of Jesus Christ; I have been touched forever. For this I am very grateful.
