Shine on Harvest Moon

What a fun night!  Emma and I enjoyed good food and great company tonight at our China Angels Harvest Moon Celebration. Emma made lots of new friends!  One friend was Sophie.  Sophie's little sister Lily is from the same province as Emma and they let me use their duffle bag for my trip to China.  Sophie has been wanting to meet Emma and finally did tonight!  She brought emma the sweetest note and puppy.  Emma immediately latched on to the puppy...and Sophie!  They are pretty tight now!

 After the program by the kids from Living Hope's Training Center, we headed outside for the Lighting of the paper lanterns  - Such a fun thing!  I lit one last year and sent it into the sky with prayers and hopes for my baby girl...not knowing that the very next year, she would be there with me!  So special to share that with her!

I have a precious video...but can't get it to upload...will try again later...

After the lanterns, there were fireworks.  They were a little too close for comfort for Em.  She latched on to Jaida pretty quickly!

A great night...

Still loving my puppy...thanks Sophie!

We're meeting the kids at a welcoming party tomorrow night! Can't wait! Our church put together 17 toiletry bags for them today jam packed with essentials and then some for their stay in the U.S.!!!!
