A little news from China


I've joined the Tianjin Families Yahoo group and am connecting with a number of people who have adopted from or are in the process of adopting from Tianjin. It's wonderful to get that insight. We've been following the Lewises blog and are living vicariously through them as they pick up David from Tianjin.

Also through the group, we've come in contact with an American who volunteers at the Tianjin CWI. I got an email from him and he asked about our son at the orphanage. Here's what he's learned:
Wei Jian Tong is in the Jinghai foster care program. Jinghai is a program that has about 200+ kids, split up into 3 kids per family. They are in a suburb of Tianjin, about an hour away by bus from the CWI.
What blessed news. Our Micah is living in a family setting getting love and care. We hope that will help his transition to our family.

We haven't heard any other news since our Letter of Intent was officially submitted to China on December 7. And so we wait. But we've had lots of practice!

How wonderful that your baby is in a foster home getting some extra attention! Praying that he will be home soon to get mom and dad's undivided attention ;)

Micah is sure a lucky little boy; first in a foster family and then with a wonderful family here. God is so good!
Please remember to keep an open mind when getting any information from the volunteer.
