Today I have received a very sweet update on Emma. She is doing so well in her new foster home.

This is the email I received today:


I am attaching your first report on your sponsored child, Emma. Our monitor did a very good job getting developmental information on the children as well as a cute story and picture. The children are adjusting well to being in their families and it sounds like they are benefiting from the more individualized care they are receiving. Some comments that appeared frequently in the reports were “likes to embrace” and “not choosy in food”. That just warms my heart, to know they are being well-fed and shown affection! Some one has asked about the building they are in, so I asked the Foster Care Director who visited the orphanage in October what it was like. Apparently the apartments are set up like duplexes, with one family living on the bottom floor and one on top. The duplexes are built around a concrete courtyard. There are small plots outside the duplexes where the families have small vegetable gardens, and a few flowers. Their apartments are roomy and spacious. I was also happy to see some of the children in strollers and outside, completely bundled up. Temperatures are already quite cold in China!
Please feel free to contact me if you should have any questions about your sponsorship. May you be blessed during the holiday season, knowing you are making a wonderful difference in the life of your sponsored child!

For her privacy, I will not post the report I was given on her. But here are a few little facts that were included:

“She eats almost very food offered and has never been choosy in food”
“She couldn’t walk steadily when entering the family, but now she can run fast.”
“Emma has almost full teeth and can speak and run.”
