The Earthquake and Updates from Waiting Families...


I wish that I could find some better maps showing the provinces clearly around the epicenter of the earthquake, but I haven't been able to find any better than these.
I am very concerned about the Starfish babes. They live in Xian which isn't far from Sichuan. I have sent an e-mail to Amanda, but I doubt that she will be able to get it. I don't know if she is still in Shanghai with Emily, or back in Xian.

*Update from April, the Starfish Babies are fine.
*April's Eliana should be fine.
*Kelly's Ella should be fine.
*Margaret's Graeme should be fine.
*Robin's Mia Hope should be fine.

*Sharon's Bailey should be fine.

If you are waiting for your child and they are in area that most likely has been affected by the earthquake and you would like to add them to the mother's prayer chain, please leave me a comment and I will post them with their photo for us all to pray for.
If you know that your baby is in a safer area, please leave a comment and let us know that too.

The babies at Starfish are safe and sound. I had sent a note to one of the board members a little while ago and just heard back. They were in contact with Starfish this morning and everyone is safe.

Praise Jesus.

Praying for all of the people in China and the families that have lost loved ones.

I got an e-mail from Half the sky that all the orphanages in Chengdu and the surrounding areas are fine. Praise God!

Waiting for Mia Hope! said...

Kimberley, you are so thoughtful! Thank you for thinking of everyone's baby! Mia is up north near Mongolia so hopefully she is okay. My first thought when I heard the news was if there were any orphanages hit by this tragedy...any families out there now trying to get home. I will continue to pray for China!

Thank you for this update about the babies at Starfish and those who read your blog and are waiting. I saw a picture on the news that showed babies and it sickened me...

Praying for China...
