Hi to all our readers - We are making a plea today. Our orphanage has hired a wonderful lady named Emma to come in and work with the children so that they can learn a few English words (such as momma, daddy, drink, potty) and basic concepts (shapes, colors, etc) before they leave for America. The families adopting through Harmony House are wanting to send over a care package or monetary donation to help buy supplies since they have told us that finding preschool materials is almost impossible in that part of China. They would love to have some simple things like crayons, construction paper, glue sticks, child scissors, labels, markers, coloring pages, etc - and apparently, even though we can go to any store on the block and find these things in America - that's not the case in China. So, I am asking if each of our blog readers would make a $5 (or more or less) donation this week using our Paypal button. Just mark it HH Supplies and we will get it to the right people so these beautiful children can work with Emma and be ready for their new families to bring them home. We say "Thank You" in advance and we'll let you know how much is raised through our blog this week.
June 1st was Children's Day in China and here are some pictures Lori's orphanage sent over yesterday. Enjoy!
