First thing's first.
Thank you SO very much whomever donated $100.00 to John's fund. I couldn't believe my eyes!
We are now above the $1,000 mark!!!!
We will get there and John is so worth it.
Speaking of John, here is his latest photo!!
I noticed right away that our sweet boy has a big scratch on his face.
It also makes me very sad seeing him in a coat with pink/purple on it.
Yes, I know he is in an orphanage where all kids dress like this and I totally get that.
However, he goes to school in one of the wealthiest provinces in China.
So here is my son going to school where he already sticks out being a Little Person (Little People in orphanages almost never get to go to school in China) and then he has to go wearing a girls coat.
I know I shouldn't feel that way but I do because he is my son and I want the best for him and to keep him from feeling like he is less than.
We were able to get 10 questions answered and while I am glad we have them I was hoping they would go over the questions with John but I can tell it is just someone who works there giving her answers to the questions as she believes. I really wish she could have spent a bit more time answering them as they are very short and to the point but I'll take it. :)
