Surgery Delayed but we got new pictures!!!

I received an email first thing this morning from a family that is in Hangzhou right now.  The were united with their new daughter on Monday.  They told the orphanage director that they had brought photo's of 7 children that have families waiting to come get them, and asked if they could see them.  They said YES!  The news yesterday before I posted is that Myah was in the hospital and they would not get to see her... but today they did get to see her.  Sooooo here she is....

The last picture is my favorite!  This sweet lady is Lindsey.  She is the one that asked to see our sweet Myah and 6 other children!  This one is my favorite, as I know that her heart for orphans is the same as my heart!  This picture is of a mamma checking on another mamma's baby!  Thank you over and over again Lindsey for taking the time to see our precious children and not making us wait until you return to the USA to send them!!!

In the email to me Lindsey said:  Your daughter has a slight cold, without fever, so they decided to wait on the surgery.  It sounds like they may try again next week. She was happy, came to me with no problem, and even gave us some smiles.  She felt a little congested, but nothing extreme.  They told me to tell you not to worry, that they just want to wait until she is totally healthy again.  She was such a sweetie pie.  They feel she needs surgery sooner, rather than later, and they are thrilled to hear she will have a family soon.

This mamma's heart is happy to see our sweet baby and prayerful for her cold to go away so that she can have her surgery!  Please take 15 seconds right now to pray for Myah!

Myah is in the hospital, please pray for her!

There is a family in Hangzhou right now.  They received their daughter on Monday.  They traveled with photo's of several children that have families that are waiting to travel to get them.  Our sweet Myah was one of those photo's.  I am so happy that the other families will get to receive new photo's of their kids!  They will not be seeing Myah, as she is in the hospital to have her lip repair surgery.  I am sure by now that she has had her surgery and is there recovering.  Please pray for her to have little pain and that she will be loved and cared for while she is here.

The family that is there will ask how she is doing and find out how long they anticipate she will be in the hospital.  I will update you as I know!  Please take 15 seconds right now to pray for our sweet Myah and for God's protection over here!

Thank you!
