My Babies in China


About 3 months ago I signed up to sponsor a little girl in China. (www.chinaorphans.com) Her name was Ava-Hope. Within a month and a half I was totally attched and called her "my baby in China." The day I found out that she was getting adopted was bitter-sweet. She wasn't going to be my baby anymore, but someone else's; but it was exactly what I had been praying for so I was happy at the same time.
After Ava was gone, I had to pick out another baby to sponsor. I chose Tiffany, a four year ol with a solemn face that turns spunky when she smiles. When I first got the info on her I regreted choosing her. I had sponsored Ava-Hope for only a month and a half and cried when she got adopted. Here was another little girl, just as beautiful, who has serious heart problems and will probably not live long, or get adopted. I really didn't want to go through all that emotional trama. But, as I prayed for Tiffany, and carried her pictures everywhere, God changed my heart and she's now my second baby in China.
My friend Annie also sponsors a little girl who lives at the same place, and we're planning a trip to visit them this summer. If anyone's intersted in going we'd love to have you!

Yes...anyone want to come? We'd LOVE to have you! The more the merrier!

I love sharing this whole sponsorship experience with you, Kaish, and getting to talk about our "babies" all the time. Like you said, it can be a bittersweet ride at times, so I'm so glad we have each other to share the ups and downs with. I can't even tell you how EXCITED I am to go see precious Tiffany and Margaret this summer! Counting down the days!!!!
