Just moments after I published the last post, I received an email from our agency with an update on Da Xin and one photo. It brought me to tears. BIG HAPPY TEARS!!! Thank you God for preparing Da Xin's heart for this adoption!!
Da Xin quickly adjusted from holiday break to the busy school when the new term started. She studies hard, listen to the teachers, finishes the homework on time and she has very good grades. At school, she helps others. At home, she helps foster parents with some light house work. Now, she not only can cook rice, noodles, make soy milk but also making stir fry dishes. When she received her adoptive family’s packet she was very excited! And she opened and read the letter, immediately she said “I can not wait to meet my Mama, Papa.” She replied the letter right away. In the letter, she addressed her wish to meet her new family and come home. She wore the new cloth that her parents sent, and shared the family pictures with her teacher, classmates and her friends. She said to everyone “I have Papa and Mama, I have a home now!” She is turning 11 in two months. She sleeps and eats well, she has her schedule and she is healthy.
Did I mention big ol' happy tears?!?
Da Xin's new measurements still show her to be Leila's height and weight. And we received one new photo of her (soon to post on Da Xin's private blog). And I'm so excited that it sounds like she has a letter in the mail on its way to us. Hallelujah!!
