On Saturday we celebrated Chinese New Year with our local FCC. The girls really enjoy going to this every year so I am so glad Tersea was feeling better and could enjoy it .
It was a very joyful day because we met the family that adopted Jia Yi . Jia Yi is a little girl that we met in China 3 years ago when we delivered Christmas stockings to her orphanage . She really captured our hearts with her sweet little voice and joyful smile . She had just had surgery on her legs and could not walk but she was so sweet and happy anyway . When we came home from China we started advocating for her to find her family . The orphanage had not yet started her paperwork so she was not yet adoptable . We had our friend push to get them moving on it and after a few months her file was released and a family who happens to live close to us adopted her ! This is such a blessing because we never thought we would see Jia Yi again .
Jia Yi's Orphanage is also the same Orphanage that we found Baby Josiah starving to death . This little baby was laying all alone in the corner too weak to cry But not too weak to smile and lift his hand to be LOVED ! We had him moved to Lynsay and Bills Home and they nurtured him back to health . Sadly last year he was returned to this orphanage where he still waits for his forever family to bring him home . He is now 3 1/2 yeas old . Could you be his Mother and Father ?
