March Madness...

Since it's March Madness time, I thought I would post an inspiring basketball story. Jaelyn loves to view success stories of people who are like her, so here is the latest we came upon. I truly believe that she will one day inspire others in the same way!

Not so good report....

So last week Mike took Kaia for her post-myringoplasty checkup, and unfortunately she got a not so good report. It seems her hearing in her left ear has dropped from a low hearing loss to a moderate hearing loss. The doctor was quite surprised by this, especially since the repair looked good when he looked at it. So now we go back in May for another hearing test. Praying that things look better by then.

Great Read....

Seems I have slacked off on my blogging lately, but I do have good excuses (really)! First, my camera is on the blitz (yes, the new one I blogged about in November), so I can take pictures, but I can't get them off the camera. Second, I've been busy putting together this year's team for our work in Chaoyang. I'm very excited to be returning to Chaoyang after having to go to Heng Feng last summer. Don't get me wrong, it was a wonderful experience, but I just missed my kiddos in Chaoyang. And lastly, not a lot of exciting things happened in February, so I didn't want to bore you to death:)

Speaking of the team, one book I am recommending the team read is Kay Bratt's Silent Tears. Kay tells of her experience of living and volunteering for two years at an orphanage in China. So much of her experience I could completely relate to. An encore edition of the book is just getting ready to come out. so check it out.

If anyone reading this is interested in being a part of this year's team, please let me know, as things are starting to roll, or if you just want to support the trip/orphanage, let me know that too. We are planning on purchasing a playground for them this year, and I will post more details when I have them.
