My March 2010 visit to Gracie's Room in XinXang China

I've posted this video for a mom whose daughter is presently in Gracie's Room and she is in the video!
I'm not sure if I'm allowed to say which baby, but she is the cutest baby in the video!!
Ohh.. they are all pretty cute, and they all have my heart in the palm of thier hands!

Please keep all these children in your thoughts and prayers! There are 7 more children that need sponsors to stay in Gracie's Room, please consider sponsoring a child!
250$us will sponsor a child for a full year, and you will receive quarterly medical reports with photos.

Ni Hao Y'all

One of my favorite blogs, Ni Hao Y'all is doing a great GiveAway!
30 days of free giveaways for Christmas!!
Gotta love it!

I love her blog, and I love that she raises money for special needs children in China..(clubbed feet) and y'all know how special that is to my heart.
I wish I could get the same sponsorship commitment that she has with Orphans Wish, for Gracie's Room First Hugs Program!!

I'll keep chipping away at it, every little bit counts to those beautiful children.

Man, we were completely unprepared for Halloween this year!!
I have no idea why, but it just seemed to sneak up on us.
I managed to take some quick pics of the kids before they ran off in separate directions..

Power Ranger Lily! She was so excited that I found a pink costume!
Isabelle... oh Isabelle.. The night before she went to a friend's Halloween party dressed up as a person caught in a wind storm, her hair was blown back, we had wires in her scarf and dress that held them straight back, she had an inverted umbrella and leaves stuck in her hair! It was a fantastic costume! Then another friend called last minute Halloween night, saying she didn't have a costume to wear, so Isabelle gave her the wind swept costume and in 30mins we threw together this Rubiks Cube costume!
of course I didn't manage to get any pics of the wind swept costume as I thought she'd be wearing it again .. ooh well..
but to add to this, she went trick or treating with this same friend, in her neighbourhood, and she ended up getting almost NO CANDY!! Even Lily and Hanlin got twice as much as she did!!
Abigail got dressed as Mother Nature with flowers and greenry in her hair, butterflies on her face, and shoulders and vines all alround her dress and legs. BUT, went out trick or treating with friends and got ready there so I have no pics of her either.... sigh...
Here is Hanlin! My Transformer!! Seconds after this picture, he fell backwards, jumped and ran around ready to go! What a riot. It was soo cold out last night, I put on thier winter coats under the costumes. Man, I had them stuffed in those outfits that they looked like little muscle men! Hillarious!
As he laid his head on his pillow last night he said "this is the best trick or treating day EVER!!"
Then 2 hours later woke up with a wicked bloody nose!
We finally have an appt with the ENT tomorrow!! YEAH
Hopefully we'll get some answers on his hearing loss.
