Inside MaoGang

Edited to add:  I just watched the video to make sure it worked.  I haven't watched it for quite some time. I just can't believe that's my daughter.  I can't believe that she lived there for 3 1/2 years before becoming my daughter. I can't believe I missed out on so much.  The little girl in the video doesn't even resemble my daugher now.  For the first time, this video was hard to watch.  She has changed so much.
God really is the God of second chances.

This short video was in Jia's referral information.  Parents waiting to travel and get their MaoGang girls wonder what kind of conditions their daughters are in while waiting on their Mama and Baba to come.
I doubt I leave this up for very long since it's sort of personal.  But it's too large to load on the MaoGang Yahoo group and I wanted to share.

So here's a peek inside MaoGang from about July 2008.  Jia was about 2.5 years old here.
 For those of you that know Jia now... watch the little boy shove her at the end.  Can you believe that she was ever so complacent??

I'm going to try and get back to blogging soon!  My computer was down, then we had vacation bible school.  I did the music and working all day then going to VBS really kicked my butt!
You just get out of blogging mode too easily!
Soon we're headed to Branson for vacation, then school starts!  YIPPEE!!!!
So, I'll be back!
