Journey: another update

Beijing has been very cold this winter!
It seems that with each step and the closer we get to going to China the longer the time seems to take. Really, after waiting 5 years you would think I could handle these last couple of months!
David's room is coming along. It's a great shade of blue! We picked up his crib and we love it and hope he does too! It's a convertible one so he'll sleep in it till he leaves for college :)
One great thing that happens each month is that New Day sends out an update to David's sponsors. Although we can't sponsor him, New Day is super sweet and sends us the update. They also send a picture which always makes my day although in this month's picture he looks a bit sad- I'm hoping it's because he doesn't like cold weather. If that's the case he'll fit perfectly in Waco where the high today (in February, for goodness sakes) was 80 degrees!!
Dear Friends,
We hope this note finds you doing well, and that you enjoy reading this month's update.
David (Calvin) is 1 Year 5 Months Old.
David (Calvin)'s foster mom wrote this update:
David (Calvin) is growing taller and of course, smarter. He likes to learn new things and enjoys playing with the older children like a big boy. He loves to jump and to climb when playing. He will ask me to support him so he can stand on the chair. One of his favorite things to do is play with his toy phone. He likes to push the buttons and sing along with the songs that rhythm. At nighttime he likes to help me turn on the lights in the house and has learned to open and close the doors. He also likes to walk around the bedrooms looking at the different colors. For his safety, we have installed locks on most of the doors as we don’t want him to play alone in the rooms. It is our pleasure to take care of him until he is united with his forever family.

If you ever have any questions, please let us know. Thank you for your continued support.
Blessings,
New Day Staff

Never fear about that expression. Having lived in Vermont all of my life, no child likes to put on a lot of warm clothing! It is restricting and David likes to move! He saying, "Do I have to wear all of this?" However, when he comes to visit Vermont, he'll appreciate having it! It is -3 degrees this morning.
My prayers are always with you as you wait for your forever child.
Love,
Cindy
