Meet the Babies!!!!!

Lori, my friend at Joy Unspeakable, spent the day with the babies at Morning Star Foundation and has posted pictures. She is having trouble posting pictures since Blogger is currently blocked in China. She is posting at Journey to Me, click on 'adoption stories' and then 'Journey to ShuLi.'

Before she left, we agreed that to help raise awareness for the baby shower, she would post a bunch of pictures and I would copy and paste her blog post(s) onto mine, in case you don't want to click over to hers. When we were there in January, they only had Corrie. She was SO tiny and limp. At six months old, she was the size of a newborn and with even less muscle tone. Under the care of Bill and Lynsay, she has gained lots of weight and now she is crawling!! So without further ado... here are some of the babies....

Beijing Day 2

We had a great day in Beijing today! Our friends Bill & Lynsay know this city inside and out. I'm amazed at their language and driving skills. Seriously.

Let's shower those babies with baby beds, blankets, diapers, formula, toys and everything else they need! To donate, you can go to Lynsay's blog or if you would rather send a check, you can send it to:

The Cause
365 NE Greenwood Avenue Suite 1
Bend, Oregon 97701
USA
Designate in the memo section that it is for Morning Star Foundation.

No amount is too small! Even $5 helps.

Oh, I want to bring one or two home too! What incredibly adorable little babies. Will definitely be praying for Luke on Monday.

Hopefully, once the babies have their surgeries, their originating orphanages will send their paperwork to CC*A for adoption. :))))

Hi,
I might be crazy, but I thought I commented here earlier today. I don't see it but anyway, wanted to tell you that I laughed out loud over your comment on Adeye's blog over the snow.
