Earthquake in China


Many of you have contacted us regarding the tragic earthquake in China. Sichuan Province and Chongquing Municipality were hit with an earthquake that ranked 7.8 to 8.0 depending on the news report. The death toll has reached over 7,000 at this point.
Graeme's orphanage is in Anhui Province and there are no reports that there is damage there as of this point. We believe that he is safe!!!! We are so fortunate!!!
However, Lily is from Chongquing and her social welfare institute is there, XiuShan SWI. We have not heard directly about her former orphanage and the children and nannies there. We are praying that they are all well. The news has been heartbreaking and I will be honest in saying that I have avoided it as much as possible until tonight when I could watch and cry and pray! I am hoping that in the upcoming days that they find many more survivors!
