Ali's Post

Hi Everyone!
As Diana has said, our schedule has been VERY busy, but the excitement and thought of seeing the children keep us going! So far, this experience has been one of the best of my entire life. A few post ago you read about Lu Lu, the little girl with down syndrome. I can honestly say that when she wrapped her arms around me the amount of emotions that ran through my body was something I've never experienced. I was scared, happy, sad, excited, nervous etc. all that the same time! It was INCREDIBLE and she instantly had my heart. Needless to say we were only there five minutes and I was already hysterical!

As for the children in Camp Ox, they are also soo amazing! These children are very well cared for and it shows. As a nanny myself, I can understand and appreciate the amount of time and effort that goes into loving a child that is not your own. I admire these nannies so much and they are the ones we especially need to thank for taking such good care of these children!

As, Diana said we have TONS of pictures and can't wait to share them with you all!
Keep reading and keep spreading the word about these children. I hope all of you are falling in love with them just as I am!



  1. I am a single mom and have three adopted from China, two girls and a boy, the boy was cl/cp and the girl is albino ! See if they would bend the rules and let a single adopt ! I would definitely adopt an older girl !


  2. You are amazing! I'm crying...just reading this. What you are doing is incredible. We are so proud of you!!
