I feel I've almost hit excessive on the number of "issue" posts lately. So, I will keep this one short. China, as you know, has experienced severe weather. Many orphanages are in trouble. I received an email this morning about one nanny walking FOUR hours to the orphanage she they works, others are leaving their families to be with the orphans instead of staying home to celebrate Chinese New Year. Here is a site with more info on specific orphanages and their needs. Info is at the right hand side of the home page. This photo was taken at Alden's orphanage, before we adopted him. He was lucky to have a coat. I can't imagine what snow at Sarah's old orphanage would be like, and they say the weather in Hunan, her province, is horrible.
Had an interesting conversation with Alden last night. We were on our way home from the kid's "Age of Aquarius" performance. If anyone knows how to get that song out of one's head, PLEASE COMMENT!
We stopped by ACS, David's business, to get his phone.
Alden asked, "Mommy, why Daddy have keys ACS?"
This began a challenging discussion about Daddy owning the business. It quickly became obvious that Alden has no concept of someone OWNing a business.
We left it at "So all people at ACS have to listen Daddy?"
Alden liked that idea.
