More adoptions in the works...

We have news that Jeannie will be adopted June 29th into a family from Norway!!
Happy days........that leaves 15 and we hear two more will follow soon........13...........
so we are getting closer to seeing our little ones  all in forever families. What a miracle
if each and every one we knew got to experience the joy and love of a home and family.

There's our boy....

Check out Anthony (far right) and his beautiful brothers. Four sweethearts. We are so happy for him. His lovely Mother has promised to keep us updated and I think that is so generous and kind of her. Anthony is blessed as are his family. TBTG.

Heard from her Mom and things are going well. She looks so happy. Thrilled to see where she is living and how she fits right in where she was meant to be.

It is so quiet...

Here is sweet Lily with her family. It does my heart good imagining how her days are spent now. Still our little Twinkle girl.

It is three months almost since we came home from China. It seems like a distant memory and yet 3 months is such a short time. I wish I had a crystal ball to gaze into every now and then. To see the kids and know they are doing well. Amanda is not writing much in her blog and has been away from the home for quite some time since we left. Our contact with Brittany and Louise has been minimal and Pat and Cindy are no doubt busy as well. It makes the connection we all had for that brief moment in time bittersweet. But such is life and we will continue to follow the little ones we knew as long as we can and as long as it takes.

I wish there was more to tell you...

I would love to post pictures of Megan and her new family and Anthony and his new family. Especially I would so like to post pretty photos of any of the sixteen remaining Starfish and their forever families, but I can not because there are none....for now. I hear whisperings of some to come but just not now.

Of course, now there are even more children residing at the foster home on the fifth floor in Xi'an, but we don't know them and so don't have the same connection that we had with
 "our kids". 

I am just going to have to learn to be patient here.......not an easy thing for me. Meanwhile I busy myself planning our trip for next year. Trying to decide where to go and how we can be of best service and praying for all those without families of their own all over the world today.
