Day Three- Lot of Pictures!

Day three we headed straight to Harmony House after breakfast.

Angie with her love Wendy.

Mollie was in heaven with these two.

Patti jumped in to get some baby time too!

Anne with sweet Wendy.

Grace with baby Jane.
I am pretty sure Jane has Grace's heart in that tiny little hand of hers.

This is Billy.
He is the only cleft baby at Harmony right now.

Every time I went in the baby room these two were together. 
They were both very happy!

"The Mayor"- someone will be very blessed to call this delightful child son.

You are never too young to travel to the other side of the world to do God's work.
Grace, Bailey and Audrey Kate were exemplary examples!

Such joy, such need.
A family for her will make all the difference.
Another blessing for someone out there!!!

Jennifer has a forever family!
She will bless them!

This little one needs a family soon.
Can you see her blue lips?
She needs heart surgery.
She is absolutely beautiful.
She is a great eater.
She is shy at first but soon warms up.

Another delight to be around.

Peter is deaf but the good news is he has a forever family.
This little one is full of life and energy.
He is very smart.

This is Sarabeth helping Brian put on his new shoes.
The kids were so happy with their new shoes. Well everyone but Cliff.

Here he is so sad with his new shoes. There were colorful animals on them that scared him.
Plus he said he really just liked his old shoes.
He also is a cutie and so full of life!
He needs a forever family.

Gary has a smile on his face.
He was so happy with his new shoes.

Kari is new to HH. She is sweet and quiet.
She needs a forever family.

This is a picture of the nannies as we were presenting the gifts to them.
Some have hardened hearts towards Christians. 
We prayed that we would witness with our lives and love we showed to them.

They fed us dinner and invited us in to learn how to make dumplings.
The women in the black t-shirt was there when Adam was. When she found out I was his mom she got very excited and started asking many questions about him. 
I sat down at the table with her and showed her pictures of Adam. 
I told her all about how he was doing.
She knew specific things like his hips being out of joint and asked about it.
I later found out that she had taken Adam as a son while he was at Harmony House and often slept in the same bed with him. This is a common practice to sleep with your children in China.
We shared a special connection and when it was time to leave she grabbed me and hugged me and cried.
I promised to bring Adam back for a visit the next time I come.

The Harmony House Staff including Linda who runs the US Operations in CA and Mama Tina.
Linda is amazing. She never stopped and kept up with us the whole time. 
I think she said she was in her 70's.
We were on 6 airplanes in 9 days going from early morning until late night. 
I want to be like that when I am in my 70's!

The next stop...




  1. Jennifer, your trip looks like such a blessing! Thank you for taking us with you!! Do you know anything about that precious little heart baby? Do you know which agency has her file? I am certain that someone in our "heart circle" would pounce on adopting her!!

  2. Jennifer, the photos from "Day 3" are all just wonderful!! What a precious group of children. The new shoes seem to have been a big hit! Although little Cliff just was not about to put those 'animals' on his feet! The most adorable look on his face ever! And to see Gary with a sweet smile on his face...his new shoes definitely made him happy! Loved the fact that you were able to share Adam's progress and photos with the Nanny who had grown so close to him. Thanks for sharing with us.
