Starfish Update!


There is a new post on Chinese Starfish with information on how Emily is doing after her surgery. You may want to go over there and read it.

Thank you to everyone who is raising funds for the rest of the children. I have done some blog hopping and I am amazed to see the graphics on the blogs of people who I don't know. It is fantastic. At this point, I have no idea how many families are helping.

OUR LAST 4 STARFISH BOXES ARE BEING HELD IN CLEARANCE DELAY STATUS BY CHINESE CUSTOMS. AMANDA WAS CONTACTED BECAUSE THEY ARE TRYING TO DECLARE THAT THESE ARE BUSINESS RELATED. SHE EXPLAINED THAT THEY ARE DONATIONS FOR HER FOSTER HOME, BUT THAT WAS DAYS AGO AND THEY ARE STILL NOT RELEASED. I SUSPECT THEY WANT TAX MONEY. I WILL UPDATE EVERYONE WHEN WE KNOW MORE.

I have been pleasantly surprised to see how many are pulling for these precious babies! I just know each and every one of them will get their surgery. I can't wait to see them in the arms of their forever families one day and know that we ALL pulled together to help them while they waited for their mommy. :) So many angels have cared for Mia Hope and I am forever grateful to them!
