Santa tricked the kids this year and put the presents in the family room and not under the tree in the study. Jake was the only one upset, the other kids caught on quick and rushed to the other room. As is our family tradition we read the story of Jesus' birth before letting them tear into the gifts.
Hope's favorite gift was something Santa got on clearance after Halloween. She keeps saying she is going to be a brain surgeon when she gets bigger. Santa found this amazing costume for her and a medical kit with a brain book!! She hasn't taken it off all day!!
Hope all of you had a very Merry Christmas!! Oh, I won't be able to post for a couple days but promise to give the answer to our new place of residency on Monday. It's nothing as glamorous as England or anywhere like that. Another hint. Google Pink Panther.

Cleft issues are not as hard to deal with as you would think, so please take a look and advocate for these kids. Wouldn't it be wonderful to give them the gift of family for Christmas???
Here is the excerpt from CWA's website for her;
“Hi, I am... I am 10. I am in 4th Grade at Gao Li Ying primary school. I am going to sing a song for you. The name of the song is … by …”
Segments of the interview:
Dr. Dan asked her if she wanted a big or a small family, she said “A big family”. Q: “Do you want brothers or sisters on the family?A: “Both”Q: “Do you want older or younger sibling?A: “I want a family with many siblings; it does not matter if they are older or younger than me; or if they are brothers or sisters.”
Dr. Dan’s impression of her: “A cute and smiley face makes her so endearing to be around. Great personality; easy to speak to. She seemed eager to talk and was comfortable and relaxed with me. A real sweetheart!”
She can pronounce words clearly and without difficulties; she just sounded nasal.
