The baby home at True Children’s Home. This is where all the two bags of donations were delivered. They were very thankful!

The nannies at TCH take great care of the kids.

While I met with the foster family, Koen and Li Li attempted to play on the playground, but it was too hot.  Li Li often stands with her hands behind her back like this.

    Keith, thanks for the second attempt at the Dongguan pictures. The first 2 came through fine, then the rest were small and in a string that sort of piled on top of each other. With a bit of maniuplating and viewing one at a time, I was able to see them all. I’m so impressed with TCH – the kids look so well cared for and the home is clean and the children clean and well dressed. Not at all like we picture orphanages usually. At least we can thank God they are being well cared for while they await their “forever” families. Saw the weather forcast — hot indeed. You should be home, it is raining today but is supposed to clear up later today. Hope so – we leave on our “mini-cruise” tomorrow. Love and hugs,

    Thanks for the pictures. I could see them with a little effort at rearranging, thanks to Carrie. I’m frustrated that I’m unable to comment. You’ll probably benefit from not getting my wonderful words of wisdom though. Love ya & miss ya.
