Jesus said “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me.” - Mark 9:37

While we wait...

to hear back from Angela at Ladybugs 'N Love I thought I would post a pic of the CNY pkg we sent him. Angela had some computer troubles last month and I never received the pic until this weekend. But love it!

Steve thought it best to send Eli something practical,
especially with as cold as we hear it is there. 
We also sent him another letter and three new pics to add to his photo album we sent him for Christmas.

Levi blowing out the candles on Eli's birthday cake here at home.

Angela is trying to get some info from Eli's orphanage as to his receipt of the Christmas care pkg we sent, the birthday cake we ordered for him and also the above Chinese New Year care pkg we sent. We are aware that the orphanage and/or his foster family have the choice wether to give him what we send or not. So we (especially me) are getting desperate to hear back any word, or updates and/or pics of Eli and his gifts. We sent a SASE in the first care pkg, as we are hoping with our letters and maybe open lines of communication to help prepare him. Sigh!

Prayers are appreciated... Prayers that we hear back something soon, prayers that they let Eli have the gifts and learn about his forever family that loves him, prayers that they help prepare him for his future, prayers that he stays healthy & well until we can get there to bring him home. Thanks!

Blessings,
Sherry & family
