This blog is a chance for us to tell our story and shine the light on the God who wrote it.

It is also a place for me to bring into the spotlight the millions of orphans around the world who are waiting for the Body of Christ to fulfill God's command to "care for orphans and widows in their distress" (James 1:27)

Soli deo Gloria... (All Glory to God Alone).

New Day South






Yesterday was an eventful day! First, we toured Yuntai Botanical Gardens with two other families and our guide. The gardens were absolutely gorgeous and it was wonderful to be outside in this warm Guangzhou weather. It was evident that Mei enjoyed being outdoors as well, and especially liked it when we'd take her out of her stroller and let her walk around. She is still needing to hold onto our hands while she walks but she loves to try walking and moves along quite quickly.

In the afternoon, we drove with our guide and the Cobb family to the New Day Foster Home in Zhongshan, about an hour and a half from our hotel. It was so very worth the trip to meet Doug, Janice and their daughter Sarah Grace as well as the ayis and children at New Day South. New Day South began only a year ago when Doug and Janice moved from Beijing to work on creating a similar model as what they'd been a part of in Beijing- the original New Day Foster Home. The one in Beijing has been so successful- it includes a foster home that cares for about 60 children at a time, until they are adopted, as well as running a manufacturing business and an English language school.

Right now, New Day South provides a home, love and medical care to seven children. It was such a joy to meet each of these children and get to play with them! The home will continue to grow as finances allow. I cannot wait to show you more pictures and introduce you to each of these precious children! In the meantime, I've included in this post one group shot that features a few of the children and their ayis... more to come!

Also, I've included pictures
