Where are you Global Girl???

Got a comment from a girl who volunteered at a foster home in China but her blog is just for invited guests. Can I read it please?
Email me. I would love to hear your story.

I have an update but little time. Hang in there and drop by later.

We are getting ready for school and to welcome fall.

This was a very good week.......

I had emails from Louise, the British volunteer, we met at Starfish; from our Brittany; from
the ever inspirational New Yorkers Pat and Cindy, who we spent too little time with in China.
All good news.

 We got to celebrate our friends referral of a long awaited precious daughter from Jiangxi where our beautiful Beth was born, and to see so many other families get similar happy news on their blogs. Each photo of each darling little face was like a miracle happening right before our eyes.

There were updates on several of "our" kids from their sweet Mothers who are kind enough to share with us because they know how we love and care about this special group of children. They know their children are going to be in our prayers always.

So it was a special week with all of these things adding up to a real thrill!!
We can't wait to hear more good news.

Special mention......sweet Mary Anne.... of the fab four


Received a nice long update from Carrie on Anthony. He is doing so well as evidenced by the happy pictures of he and his Daddy and brothers playing on a beach, on summer vacation. It is obvious from his Mother's writing that he is surrounded by love and thriving. There is surgery for his heart disease in his future but I am sure that will be a small blip on his life's journey. We are keeping him in our prayers and if you could offer up the same I am sure it would be appreciated.

Also some further pictures of Megan and her sweet sister Carly and her lovely Mom and Dad....also all doing beautifully together.

Now I am ready for some more adoptions. What about you?

I am so happy for our friends here in town who finally received the referral, after three long years, for their precious Mary Anne. They are leaving in  5 weeks and will be united with her on September 22nd. Another incredible love story.

How sweet it is....

I think it is just wonderful when I get updated pictures of  "our kids". How generous and caring of their parents to realize that we just want to know they are happy and doing well and loved. It is how we dreamed their lives would be when we played with them and cuddled them in China. They were so innocent and trusting and so in need of a family to do for them what is being done now.
So thanks for sharing you wonderful people. Here is Megan and her sweet sister Carly.

And of course, the infamous and loved little Cailean.........still at Starfish.  A healthy and strong
boy now, just learning to walk. Amanda and all her supporters have done that for him by the grace of God. It is a good thing and we continue to pray that his life will unfold as planned and 
that he too will find a family of his very own. He was born a good natured and happy little soul and I see no signs of that changing.

We are making great headway on plans for our 2009 trip..........hop over to that blog and update yourselves. Getting pretty excited!! would love to hear any comments you have to make and thanks for keeping the faith with us.
