Wacky Wednesday....

Today ...again up a red sun rising in the sky thru a veil of murkiness. We are sharing the apartment with Brittany and also a couple of New Yorkers who have developed a Foundation to help Amanda run Starfish. They have taken it upon themselves to help with a laundry list of chores Amanda had for their visit here this time. They have painted the babies feeding area and both of the bedrooms a cheerful blue and yellow, and stenciled starfish on the walls. Most walls in China are stark white so it was a big improvement. Pat has mended and patched
and worked himself from sun up to sun down. He made the mistake of putting up wallpaper which the little ones promptly found and started picking off. They need way more stimulation than they get! Cindy has been equally hard at work taking photos and videos of the kids to post and help raise money and use later when they become available for adoption. This is but a mere sampler of what I have seen them do. It makes the little we try to do seem small. We enjoy our cuddle and play time with the kids and hope it gives some comfort.
Proctor & Gamble sent a huge pile of diapers at Pat and Cindy's instigation and I helped stack those for a photo shoot tomorrow, as a thank you to the company. We will bring down some of the bigger kids and take some shots amongst the boxes and diapers and send it off.
That should be fun and we will help bring them all down to the apartment for that. We are trying to take photos of each of the children and will include a small bio. This assuming my previous posts downloaded. Comments are also not coming thru but we are getting emails at our yahoo address.
Tomorrow afternoon after lunch we are off to "the old city" and the muslim market. We are ready for a wee break and to take in some local colour.
