Olivia and Gracie

The spring package I sent to China arrived. Thank you Carrie for adorable pictures! Great news... Olivia has been matched with a family. From the day I met her, I have prayed she would have a family soon. When I was in China, I wrote my sister and asked/begged her and Ryan to adopt Olivia (I can't b/c you have to be married). I'm so happy for Olivia and her new name is Victoria. She looks like a Victoria!

My friend, Carrie, is an incredible person and a talented writer. Carrie wrote a story about an experience she had with Olivia, here. It's so hard to imagine how these kids must feel.



I love it that all little girls, even little girls in a Chinese Foster Home, know how to hold a baby.


She is so stinkin' cute and she's just as sweet as she is cute!

I sent Victoria a dozen pair of sunglasses to pass out to her friends. Who wants the sun in your eyes while you're playing on the playgroud?


Fun Dip to share with friends




Gracie is getting SO big! She is such a doll! I just wish I could reach into my computer screen and hug her.

What a wonderful care package!!

I love the matching dress for Victoria and her baby doll...too cute. I actually just bought Sophie the same doll for when she comes home:-).

We got to talk with Sophie using sky*pe last night...it was unbelievable!!! Once I saw her 'live' across the webcam, it was like my heart instantaneously grew bigger. We can't wait to bring her home:-).

New Day is so wonderful to these kids.

God bless

Amanda said...

Why do the parents-to-be have to change her name?? Isn't she old enough to know her name? Or is she called by a chinese name at the moment, and won't know the difference?

I'm so happy for Olivia/Victoria. What wonderful news! I'm sure the Lord has answered your prayers and matched her to a set of loving parents. Every little girl needs to know that they are special and your care packages have been a true blessing for those two little girls.
