Some of our volunteers will be leaving in a few hours for China. It's just going to be wonderful seeing the kids again! So many children have been adopted since last year and the parents who have contacted me are over the moon! Overwhelmingly, the children have adapted into their life like they've always been there. I credit the great work of so many Chinese foster parents, making it possible for a child to learn life skills in a family while waiting for their adoptive parents. Children's Home Society and Family Services went to China in March 2010 to work with an orphanage in the Journey of Hope Program. Many of these children now have loving families anxiously waiting travel approval... but there are still some children left, hoping for a forever family.
