The Earthquake in China


I totally copied this form my friend and travel partner Susan's blog. She nailed everything so perfectly, I could not have done any better. Susan and Jonathan's daughters and Sophia are in the same province but different cities. Sophia is with in 700 miles of where the earthquake took place. She is fine from what we hear from our agency , but we can't help but worry until we have her in our arms.





"Quick update on the earthquake
Many of you have called or emailed me this week about the devastating earthquake that occurred in China. Our girls are living in the Jiangxi province, which is 700+ miles from the epicenter in the Sichuan province. We have heard from our China Coordinator and everything is fine - the girls are safe. Unfortunately, this is not the case for tens of thousands of people. Please keep all those affected in your prayers over the coming weeks and months, as they begin the process of dealing with this tragedy and rebuilding their lives and homes. Here is a link to a great map that shows the areas and orphanages that have been affected. If you want more information, or are looking to help, check out one of these two great organizations, Love Without Boundaries and Half the Sky, who both have people on the ground in China working hard to help people cope with this disaster.

This may sound strange as you don't know me...I stumbled across your blog while looking into Chinese adoption (something my husband an I are considering!)and have loved reading your updates...but when I heard of the earthquakes in China I was so saddend by the news and was surprised that I immediately thought of you and your Sophia. I am so glad to hear that everything is OK and am praying for your daughter and a safe journey home for her.
