New PIctures of Audrey

I've been hanging on to these new pictures of Audrey because we received them just a day or two after we received the birthday pictures!  


Our little girl is getting bigger!  I feel like whomever is taking these pictures is making a concentrated effort to always (or mostly) show her in an active pose - like in the picture above, she is climbing...and here...

...she is going down the stairs on this playground.  This encourages me.  And I am glad the staff seem to be trying to communicate more in these pictures than just standing her in front of a wall and snapping a few ;-)

On a troubling note, there was a 6.3 earthquake that struck Audrey's province of Xinjiang yesterday.  It was centered about 2 hours east of where she lives in Urumqi. 

Reports indicate it was strongly felt in the city and that it toppled several buildings there.  While I'm sure she is okay (no deaths have been reported) it is yet another reminder to be praying for her daily; for her safety and well being, and that God would be preparing her heart and mind for the big changes about to come her way!

Speaking of coming her way, some other exciting news is that I think we will be traveling sooner than expected!  We had been aiming for mid to late August but it may turn out that we travel closer to the end of July!  We are awaiting confirmation that our Article 5 (part of the Hauge and immigration process) was picked up from the consulate in Guangzhou and delivered to the CCCWA on June 26th.  If that is the case, then I would expect to receive our Travel Approval sometime around the second week of July.  If that is true, then it is entirely possible we will be traveling end of July!  

I will post any exciting updates here...

  1. Just saw that your little cutie is in Urumqi...I thought the back ground in those pictures looked familiar. We brought our daughter home from there on Feb 28. I will look back in our pictures to see if I happen to see your daughter. Our daughter, Delaney, turned 2 in March, so they may have been in the same class. We were able to visit the orphanage and let her play with her classmates once last time, meeting her teachers, too. Would love to send you some of the pics we took. Some are on my Facebook page. This is so neat! I am so excited for y'all! We live in NE Tennessee. God bless you! Bunnie Turner
