Remembering Luke's Foster Family

Recently we sent an album of 25 photos and a CD with 2 mini videos on it, through Ann of Red Thread China, to Luke's orphanage to also be shared with his foster family.

The director of the Bayanur Orphanage is a very sweet lady. She was so kind and cooperative in seeing to it that we received updates and photos of Luke as we waited....every time we asked. We wanted to return that kindness to her and to his sweet foster family.

We chose the rush option for a three day delivery. Just a day or so after those three days were up, we received the sweetest letter from Director Z. expressing her gratitude and excitement over seeing "Zhi Jie's" face and hearing his voice. She said the foster family had been asking about him alot recently as to whether she had heard anything from us, so she was going to be happy to share the photos and updates with them.

I hope it brought as much happiness to them as it did to us when we opened our inbox to find an email with an update and pics!

We will forever be grateful to the loving foster family that Luke knew for the first two years of his life!

Wonderful! I am sure they were so grateful! We just "found" Sofie grandparents and they were so happy we contacted them. A small thing to do for someone who did so much for our kiddos.

What a gorgeous little man...he is growing up!
