We got our kids today. We're off and running. China's an interesting place. Some places are so modern. Some...Well, how long have older men been sitting around playing checkers?
Jamie got 2 boys who are super sweet. The older is parental toward the younger. He apparently plays that role around the orphanage a lot.
I got 2 girls. The oldest has struggled all day with me and camp but seems to be coming around. It's understandable when you realize she's never, as in not ever, been outside the orphanage. I figure I have been rejected in China once before so I can handle this. All kidding aside, she could use some prayers her way.
The younger girl is an absolute doll!
A forever family is waiting on her. Come on paperwork!
Only tough thing with this one is that she came with, ahem, friends in her hair that Jaime (bless her heart and everything else about her) picked out one by one tonight. So, after a long day, we're looking forward to a good night's sleep and hoping not to have those same kind of little friends of our own in our hair, clothing, bedding, etc.
