I'm so happy I was told about your blog. We are adopting the little boy with albinism, the one who liked to play with your hair :) If you have any other pictures of him, I would love to see them.

We adopted our son Zachary in June 2006 from Hope Haven when he was 23 mths old. At the time, the woman in charge was a Chinese Australian, who we could communicate with in English. I wish I could find her now but she is back in Australia somewhere. I did visit there, and found the orphanage staff loving and proud. Like others we got a Baby Book with pics of Zac from his earliest days. He too had his CL/CP surgery in China and they did a great job. Jilliana is adorable!

We adopted our sweet Eli (3yrs old now) in Sept 2010 from Hope Haven. They gave us a lovely Baby Book with great pictures but was glad to see more photos of the orphanage. We were not allowed to visit his orphanage but know that they provided our son with loving care while he was there. All the best to your family.

Love reading all about your adoptions. My twin sister has been waiting now for 6 years. She last year had surgery for breast cancer and did chemo and radiation. She would of received a referral in Dec. but had to put herself on hold till everything gets redone. She is doing great and I also went through another cancer treatment. We are hoping that God has that special little one picked out just for her. Please keep us in yours prayers during this time. will be off hold in April.

I really enjoyed reading your blog. We adopted our son Tyler from Hope Haven just a few months before you met Jilliana. In fact, he is in a few pictures with her in this blog with is so special to see! I also have a precious photo of the two of them holding hands that the orphanage sent to me. If you like, I can email to you. You are so fortunate to have visited Hope Haven. We were told we could not visit the orphanage. I would love to correspond with you more since it appears that our children were friends at Hope Haven. I hope to hear from you soon.

Hi There! I came across your blog when I was trying to find more information on Hope Haven. We just returned home with our daughter that was from the same place as your daughter. I was trying to see, if I could find her in any of your pictures. She turned two in March. Hope things are going well for your family and your daughter is beautiful! Jennifer

Hello, I have enjoyed reading your blog. We are in the process of adopting a little girl from China, and we just got our PA. We are now allowed to send her a care package. I really want to send her a camera, but I am just wondering: how do you get the pictures that they take with the camera?
