It just keeps getting worse...
this photo was taken of a rescue in Jiangxi Province, can you see the ice from the storm? It's insane. I just checked in with Half the Sky and they are posting updates of all the orphanages they sponsor...it's not good, and those orphanages are the 'lucky' ones. I am so worried about Paisley, and about all the children spread out across China..this is a massive tragedy.

I am also in contact with Love without Boundaries, they are trying to contact Yifeng, but as of yet they have not been able to get through. I will also try to get our agency CCAI to contact the orphanage, but if they can't either, then we just have to wait. I know for a fact that Yifeng doesnt have enough warm clothes for this kind of weather, and I worry about lack of power, heat, water and food. I am so distraught, and so helpless...it is not a good feeling. Please please consider a donation to Half the Sky's little mouse emergency fund, or help us help Yifeng by contacting Love without Boundaries and asking to donate for Yifeng SWI.

I donated babe... I'm so sorry you're having to go through this, worrying not just for your girl but all those in China suffering.

Keep up posted if you hear anything from CCAI or LWB.

I will keep all of them in my prayers.

Don't worry about anything; instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank him for all he has done.

Is there no Yahoo group for Yifeng? They'll know what's going on there. If they haven't heard from the director, then it may be a sign that they have no electricity. Anyway, you know these kids are the no. 1 priority for the nannies, and they'll keep them warm if they have to bind the babies to their bodies. Here's the update page for Half The Sky for Feb 5th in China:
http://www.halfthesky.org/work/littlemouse.php

One dollar = Eight yuan
The dollar goes far there. $10 will buy 2 large cans of formula that will feed two babies for several days, so whatever people can give really makes a difference.
Another way to possibly get news is to email LWB or Half the Sky and ask them to contact the orphanage to see what the situation is and what they need.
Hang in there. They've got another cold front coming in but they're going to do all they can, and you'll have your sweetie soon.

Praying like a mad thing. I've emailed all my friends to pray. My kids are praying, at home & their class is praying at school.
