Flying day

Today we left Nanjing for Guangzhou. It was bittersweet to leave Kevin's homeland and everything he has known. He continues to open up more everyday. He is beginning to let me do more as well. He is by far the best kid in our group.....he is always so calm and they often comment on how he never gets upset. I guess he just saves that for us in the room. He is truly a smart boy....sometimes too smart for his own good. He wants to imitate EVERYTHING Duane does....useing a knife, toothpick, trying to stand to use the bathroom. Since he has been taken out of his comfort zone it is vital to him that he controls most situations. We have chosen some battles to fight and others we will fight later. I can't believe how lucky we are to have been chosen for his parents. He is such a wonderful child. He awakens in such a good mood...he eats most things we put in front of him and he goes to sleep most nights without a problem.

He went on his first flight today...I promise pictures tomorrow.....I am really beat tonight. He slept the entire flight, everyone was jealous, but we will pay for it I am sure.......

Thanks again for all the wonderful wishes and prayers that I know are coming our way.

Sounds like y'all are having a good time! You are very lucky that you get to go back to the White Swan... I think. I can't wait for you guys to get home! Missing and loving you!


Every call has a beginning. A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart . A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him. A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns… Casting its first light on a chosen threshold. A gentle knock..a closed door opens, a sacred invitation sent by the Father.. leads to the other side of the world. Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows praying for someone to care.. and then one morning, on an ordinary day an orphan’s life changes... God sends them a second chance...Through you..

Favorite Poem

We are a family now, a whole,of which you are a part,and you are just as much our child as any in our heart. We do not love you differently,nor would we give up less of all that life has given us to bring you happiness.There is no limit to our love,no boundary you might cross,no price you may be asked to pay,no need to fear its loss. We are now one, the five of us,windows of one home. As long as we have life and breath,You’ll never be alone.~Nicholas Gordon
