Update from the SWI...updated!!

Here is the latest news from Hanzhong SWI:

We are all back in the buildings now but have just moved the babies into the first floor of their building (they normally live on the 2nd Floor)This makes it easier to evacuate them if needed. People here are still consumed with fear that HZ will be hit as bad as Si Chuan province.They are not completely confident to return to life as normal yet.Please lift the people up here and especially the carers here who are tired and scared.
Thanks for your concern,
Administrator Shekinah Shalom

I have a few pictures of Grace and then one of Hope in her new outfit I made. You can't see them real well in this picture but the ladybugs match the applique on her top.

We got another note from Hanzhong today. I am so glad to hear Grace is doing ok.
Dear Desiree,
Today we received your package for Xin Jie.All the items were inside , the picture ball & picture, outfit & shoes, toys, food and camera.I went over to the house to give them to Xin Jie and take pictures of her but she was fast asleep.So I will either do that later or go see her tomorrow.I'm sure she will enjoy all the goodies inside!Things are fine here. We had another earthquake on Saturday night but it wasn't very strong and itdidn't last very long either.With Love, Natalie

I am so glad to hear that they at least have been able to move the children back inside! Although I am sure you are still frightened about other earthquakes, it sounds like Grace is in good hands until her mama can come get her :) And that picture! Oh, she is SO precious!!!

Hey Desiree, Thanks for the invite. I just have a huge lump in my throat reading about Gracie's orphanage. How wonderful to know that she is safe and being cared for. I'll be praying for you guys! Suzanne
