Gary is 12 yeas old and is articulate and happy. Gary's SN is a cornea macular blockage in his left eye. Like Wayne, he has no problem getting around and taking care of himself. He loves to build and create things. He loves playing with legos and singing. He is a poet, and loves to memorize and recite ancient Chinese poems. You saw the stage in the room where we are, but what didnt see is the big screen behind it and the multi-media system including a karoake machine for the kids!!

Gary is a very good boy and is very neat. He prides himself on a tidy space and enjoys household chores. He wants to be a policeman when he grows up because he wants to help people.

Gary loves to be with his friends and said his best friend is Jimmy too. (About 5 kids named Jimmy as their best freind). He has a friend that was adopted by a US family, and asked me if I could find him a family too.

He is a sweet and kind boy who is easy going and laid back. He is so kind that he volunteered to by Tammy's dance partner when she couldn't find another girl. He is very thankful and constantly expressed gratitute to us for being there.

(These kids are all just amazing!)


Wayne is a sweet and loving 11 year old boy whose SN is bilateral cataracts. Though his sight is impaired, it certainly doesn't stop him. He signs, dances, and is ALWAYS happy and smiling. He gets around by himself and does not seem impaired other than some squinting and looking at things closely. Other than the cataracts, he is completely healthy.

Wayne loves to play games. He loves to be with his friends. Although he is a bit shy, he makes friends very easily and would not fear a new environment. When asked if he wanted candy, toys, whatever, he would always ask for a few extra to share. His best friend is Jimmy, and you see the two together in the skit photo.

He likes school and is a diligent, obedient and enthusiastic student. He LOVES music. Sound too perfect??? He is... Please spread the word about Wayne.

Photos from Day 2

Hi all! It is Sunday morning here (5 am) and it is our last day in China. We will spend the last morning seeing some sights, then will be heading to the airport for our 5pm flight back to the US.

I have too many thoughts to summarize right now but plan to keep the blog going for a little while... I have so many photos and videos to share. Literally, we took over 1000 photos...

As for the post right now, I want to share pictures from Day 2. Here are some of the kids doing their craft projects and of the talent show. I will then make seperate posts featuring each child that needs a home, with their pictures, describing their personality, talents and what they said in their interview.

As for the MAA interviews we started on the way here, they kind of fell by the wasteside as we were all too emotional....

ANyway, please enjoy the photos of our children.

Love to all,
