NEW PICTURE OF GRAEME!!!

I am so excited to share our newest picture of Graeme that was taken in China today. Jeff Kircik with Packages of Hope (www.packagesofhope.org) visited the orphanage today and took this picture of our son and his favorite nanny, Lu Zong Wen. Jeff contacted me last week and said that he thought he would get to go to the orphanage this week. I sent him a brief list of questions (now I am wishing I had sent more:) He got them all answered and more pictures. I am so grateful for him taking the precious time to do this for us. Each glimpse into Graeme's life gives me more peace than can be expressed. We have waited 94 days now for our LOA and the wait has been such a struggle. I live for information and Jeff has really helped me to feel connected to our son. We found out that Graeme can drink from a cup and feeds himself with a spoon. He is not yet potty trained (Darn!!!) Jeff said that the staff calls him Li Jun and he shared his new name with them and they will begin using it to help him transition. Jeff assured us that Graeme is in really good hands. He also emphasized that our little one is ACTIVE and ENERGETIC!!!! I can't wait to see him smile and play with his big sister, Lily Wen! I also can't wait to see the rest of the pictures!

Margaret, that is awesome that Jeff did all that for you!! He visited us at our home before we traveled, and talked to us at length about how much he loved the Bengbu orphanage and how well the kids are cared for. It really made me feel SO good. Graeme looks like he had a haircut! No more spikeys!! I so hope that you can squeeze in travel for April!
