More news...not so good

The following is an email from our yahoo group regarding Grace's SWI. I am beyond upset right now. I can barely type. I want so badly to get on a plane and go get my child. I am praying she hangs in there and the people from the SWI are ok. I could not imagine living in a tent with children not knowing where your next meal is going to come from or if you will survive the night. Please continue to pray for China.

I just learned through our Agency and facilitator, that the orphanage was greatly damaged. They are not allowed back into the structure. She is not sure if it is just in need of repair or if a new facility will be needed.
The agency is fund raising to ensure these children get what they need.
She said originally, the message she got was that everything was fine, but as they have been able to make more contact with their China Reps, they have learned that the structure is not good and they will be living in tents.

I know many of us have children from there, and are now waiting on children from there. I also know that we all will continue to pray for our children and that they are safe and well, as well as the many others who have been affected by this horrible tragedy.
We have been worried sick about our children and if they were alive and well, so at least we now know.

Oh my goodness, I cannot imagine how hard it is for you to not be able to just fly over there to get her.......I am praying for both you and your beautiful daughter in China.

Please do keep us posted.

When are you expected to travel?
