We’re moving now…
The doors of our Anhui Cleft Healing Home are beginning to resemble revolving doors! This is a good thing because it means that our babies are growing big enough to have their surgeries. But it can be enough to make your head spin at times! Fortunately we have a wonderful home manager in Zhang Ming and he seems to have everything under control.
Becca and Kyle returned from Anhui Children’s Hospital on April 24th having received their surgeries.
Kyle’s smile has already returned…
…and Becca just keeps getting chubbier and chubbier!
up bronchitis before her surgery on May 10th. She certainly looks happy and
healthy, doesn’t she?
Then Jon followed on May 4th and had his lip repair surgery on May 8th.
Poor thing looks a little concerned….
Ben went to ACH on the 8th and had surgery on the 13th.
In the meantime, Zhang Ming hired new nannies to care for two new babies who just arrived from Huainan.
Meet Dawn (she looks like a serious one!)…
In case you’ve lost count, we now have 10 babies in our home! Make you a little tired reading this?
There are times when I feel like I live parallel lives, one here in the states and one in China. I “only” have 7 children of my own, but feel like I have 17 when I include the babies in the home. And this time of year, my home also has a revolving door! Our oldest son graduated from law school this past weekend; the same weekend our second oldest son needed to be moved out of his dorm room. Fortunately their schools are close together! So now I have one car full of one child’s things, a small moving truck full of another’s furniture that needs to be stored until he moves into his own place. My oldest daughter will graduate from college this coming weekend. Of course her things will need to come home as well J. Maybe Zhang Ming can come to my house for awhile to help us get organized and in control!
I apologize for being late in sending this blog, but things have been a LITTLE busy!! I am very thankful for all of the good things happening to “my” children on both sides of the ocean! I hope you enjoy seeing the new faces of the children in our home, I know I do!
