Introducing Alice Xiao Ying...




At long last we have a photo to go with the name. Introducing Feng Xiao Ying, to be known as Alice Xiao Ying. She was born on January 14th 2007, and resides in foster care in Jiangxi province. She is associated with the Feng Cheng SWI (social welfare institution). So now I have posted the pictures, emailed everyone and I need to go and have a bit of a breather (and something to eat!!) Thank you all for your wonderful messages of support. I appreciate your kind words so very much.
Signing off for now, a very tired but incredibly happy new Mama.

Cristina and family - just dropped by to have another look at your girl - she is simply beautiful. What gorgeous kissable lips she has.

I hope that you are now or very soon sleeping the sleep of a contented and fulfilled mum.

Congratulations - your daughter is beautiful! Our youngest daughter was also in Foster Care through Fengcheng SWI -we celebrated our 2 year "family" day last week. Welcome to the Hello Kitty club!Please feel free to email me if you need any information about the city of Fengcheng(it is only 90 minutes away from Nanchang and we found it easy to do a day trip there with our itinerary). Be sure to send a care package with disposable cameras as the SWI WILL give them back to you (we sent 2) on family day. We also sent a questionnare that was also completed and we were pleased with the information we received. Be sure to claim ZERO value for the package as the SWI will NOT pick up any packages that have even a low value listed (it costs the SWI $ if value is listed). The Fengcheng Families yahoo group is a great one with lots of great information and pictures. Fengcheng was one of the SWI's where A Child's Right organization installed a new water filtration system at the orphanage in June of this year; you can see some newer pictures on their site under their projects tab. Best wishes, Barbara

Congratulations! Your daughter is beautiful!
My daughter came from the same SWI, was in a foster home, and came to me happy (she was laughing within an hour of receiving her) and healthy (not even a sniffle until she entered daycare here at home) - and right on track developmentally (smarter and more active than a lot of other babies I know her age)! Oh, and her referral pictures were in the same outfit, with those adorable red and white shoes!
Again, congratulations - may you feel as lucky as I do!
Aloha!
