Here I am in China again , with my granddaughter Rachel! We've been here for a week and a half now. We flew into Shanghai , stayed with Naomi Kerwin a few days at her foster home and then went on to Geiyang to the new Starfish Home. We decided to take the 24 hr train ride and enjoy the beautiful countryside.
Well.... Our 24 hrs. turned into 40! Yes the train ride from hell! It was an experience to remember that's for sure!

But, yes some beautiful country.
Starfish is now comprised of a couple of apartments in a compound in the middle of a city of four million. Lucky us are in a very nice volunteer apt. , with a sit down toilet and lots of warm water! In the middle of the complex is a lovely park and swimming pool.

They keep it very clean!


And here we are again with cute babies. This is Sean just back from Bejing and open heart surgery . Now to get alittle more chub on him before getting his hep. B treated.


Two year old Brian who's waiting for heart surgery. He's a typical toddler.
His lips are always blue and fingertips .

I'm so thank-ful for this opportunity!

Baltimore waterfront

The kids and I had a fun day at the aquarium yesterday. Beautiful place!
Then we explored an old battle ship which was fascinating  and the kids could have played there all day! And thanks to my handy dandy phone I got there and back without getting lost!

Welcome to the world Tommy

We welcomed Thomas Cole into the family at 12:30 Friday. He weighed a whopper 9 lbs 2 ozs.
Since he came home the word I have heard the most is "adorable". Over and over.....
New life... Its so sacred.....
I'm so happy to be here to share these moments.

Yesterday James and Cozy were having some disagreements so I started to sing the song "Jesus said love everyone for that is right you see". Then James started crying and said " Grandma stop singing your making me feel guilty!"

And then there was Cozy who told someone that her Grandpa couldn't come because he has a "flee" store to run!
