Clothes for the children & birthday wishes for Madeline


When we donated money for the New Year party for the Jingmen orphange, we hoped to have enough money left over to buy some new clothes for the children, and fortunately, there was. Well, today, I received photos of the children wearing the new clothes. It just warms my heart to see this.

With none of them looking at the camera...ah, the joy of photographing 4 little ones...too cute

I also wanted to share with you the care package Madeline will receive tomorrow for ther 2nd birthday. We are sending her a jacket, blanket, books, toy, camera, hair clips, and candy (and bag to put this all in when we travel to bring her home.) We also donated some pajamas to the orphanage.

As I type this, Madeline has been tucked into bed the night before her birthday. When she wakes up, we hope she will be delighted to receive her package and cake. We pray those around her will celebrate her birthday with joy in their hearts, knowing she has a family half way around the world that loves her dearly and can't wait to hold her in their arms. Happy Birthday, precious Madeline!!! Women ai ni! (We love you!)

About This Blog

This blog is a place where we have shared our lives with family and friends while we waited to bring our daughter, Madeline, home from China and while we actually traveled to China for her. It is also a place where we will continue to share our life experiences, as we try to glorify God and raise our two precious dumplings from China.

And now we wait to bring Havi home from China.
