We are following Kens blog while he is in China and he just posted two new pictures of Sophie taken today at the orphanage. She looks beautiful and her lip is healing so well. We can't wait to see her, hold her and love her.These new pictures just melt my heart. We are really praying for a miracle, that we will receive a report that her brain is healing. We were so excited to see that smile on her face, as she has not been smiling in any of the other pictures we've seen. We will contact Ken this week and pray for some encouraging news. Ken also shared some other exciting news - since they aired the Xin Hui TV special on adoption in China they have had 200 applications from Guangdong province from Chinese families wanting to adopt from the Xin Hui orphanage. What a huge praise that God is providing homes and families for all these precious children.

She really does look very good! Alert, healthy, fed....
We are praying for you as well McQ's! We already love this little girl, too.

She looks beautiful!! I'm sure it is bittersweet to see her sweet smile. Lexi just had her lip repaired this past week and I posted some pictures of her on my blog. She is doing so well that she is probably leaving Heartbridge next month and going back to her province. I'm not sure what will happen to her, but I'm hoping some way, some how she can be adopted. I can't wait to see pictures of you holding your precious Sophie!! I know that you will treasure those few moments you have with her for the rest of your life!!
