One more update... Updated

I have heard from someone inside the SWI and also had May call. The wall around the orphanage crumbled, but the buildings so far are OK. Everyone made it out OK, they are living in tents and are scared. Gracie is OK. I can not give my source but everyone is fine and accounted for. There have been many aftershocks.

We will be having a prayer vigil on Friday, every hour at the top of the hour, if anyone cares to join in.

Update:

There are continued aftershocks. The most recent a 5.1 occurred at 5pm eastern standard time. Please continue your prayers. The people of China and especially Grace's SWI have to be running low on food and needed medicines.

Desiree,

You don't know me, but I'm another Michigan AP with a child waiting for me in China (safely in Jiangxi, thank God!), but my prayers are with your Gracie and all of those brave people who are caring for her. I cannot fathom what they are going through right now. She, they and your family will be in my prayers.

Oh, you're bidding against me in the Just One Child at a Time auction for the photo package -- and I really, really want it!!!

God bless your beautiful family, and keep your Gracie (and my Elizabeth) safe until we an get to them!

I just came across your blog today and I can't imagine if my daughter were still there waiting. I will join you as you pray for your little Gracie and the others.
