Imagine Our Surprise

So there’s this magazine called Beijing Kids. It’s an English-language magazine published in Beijing targeting expat (people living in a country other than their own, usually for work reasons) parents. It provides lots of helpful tips and tricks for raising kids in the capital of China.

Imagine our surprise when a friend told us about opening up the August 2009 issue to read an article about another orphan relief organization’s work in China and she saw this picture:

The little girl in the yellow is Jacob’s sister, Hannah! The picture was taken several years ago, when she still lived in the orphanage. It’s the first time we’ve seen this photo, and if our friend hadn’t “happened” to see it, we never would have known about it!

Crazy, huh?

  1. That is a treasure for sure! And her beaming smile is priceless. To know she had happy times too even before she found her forever family is so awesome. (Kinda like going back in time and being a fly on the wall.) I bet that made you guys a little home sick right away if you were just returning. Ack! But also what a reminder it is of how important the stories and photos you capture and share with the moms and dads of these precious kids' everydays lives before they meet! They are treasures that reassure and bless beyond what you may think at the time!
