I am following along on facebook watching my brother and sister in law's progress with Zoe. She is one precious little peanut. I am so proud of Zachary, he is such a good big brother already!

love this!

she is precious is she not???

she is letting Jo leave her for a minute and sitting on John's legs:)

what a precious little girl....those lips!!!!

this is the "baby drop off" building outside the orphanage
if you have read about this, this one is the first one made available in Shenzhen...
the government's hope is that children won't be left abandoned in places they may not be able to survive
not sure how I feel about this
I think it is a better solution than being abandoned on the side of the road 
I can wrap my brain around this but not my heart...
I think I am having trouble deciding what I feel because I wish
that babies would not be abandoned....ever....the end!


  1. Sweet Zoe. What an angel!!! Blessings to them as they bond!! I pray for a better life for Chinese orphans too. Jesus bless them all!!!!!

  2. I've LOVED following Zoe's journey!! She's PRECIOUS!!! Her big brother Zachary is doing an AWESOME job helping her feel comfortable!!! Praying the visit to her orphanage helps her to understand and continue to bond with mama/baba...

    Colin's orphanage is in the process of building new rooms for all the children. They have also placed one of these buildings at the gate. Makes my heart ache to see there's even a need for such a building..

  3. Oh my how precious the love Zoe's little brother has for his sister. Melt my heart. We do have baby drops here in the US, at least in Houston, Texas. People are aloud to drop their babies at the fire stations. They even have signs on the outside of the fire station about baby safe drop. And people do leave their children there. It has happened at Joe's station.

  4. Ugh on the Baby Drop Off.. I agree.. mixed feelings on that one!!!!
    As for that little Zoe.. SWEETNESS!!! What a blessing that they have y'all for support!!! And Miss Madeline.. GORGEOUS!!! And, Janie... HILARIOUS!!! Girl you are BUSY!!! And, so BLESSED!!!!

    How many days until Hawaii?
