Visit to the Guanzhou Zoo

We decided to be brave and take our own taxi to the Zoo. The bravery paid off and the girls had a wonderful time at the zoo. This was Jailynn's very first time to visit the zoo and she loved it. Her favorite animals are Lions and Tigers. She loved them and kept calling out to them. The weather was very hot and humid which is why Jordyn was not to into getting her picture taken. Then we found the fountains and they could not resist to play in the water. I even ran through it a couple of times because we were so hot. The onlookers got a laugh out of us. THe picture of the blurry animal is a Huge Panda Bear. He was taking a nap and reminded us of Kung Fu panda. I wish that we had a better picture. We had a great day and Jailynn passed out in the taxi on the way home. Thank the Lord that the taxi had air condiion!

Hi! I am glad you are visiting my blog! Please sign my guestbook or leave me a comment. It will mean so much to me, Jordyn and Jailynn!

The rest of our family

In case anyone was curious: Here are som pictures of my oldest son, Joey and his family. Joey and Kym have three children: my beloved grandbabies: Hayden 4yrs old, Noah 22 months old, and Phoenix 9 months old. We have been helping Joey and Kym get on their feet and they have been living with us since December. They are now able to get their own place and will move out in April. I will miss them and miss the babies. I will just have to babysit!

God Is Awesome!



I am Praising God tonight because He has Heard my cries and answered my prayers. We have recieved a generation donation from a wonderful family toward our fund raising efforts. We have also recieved generous donations from wonderful people through this website and through Jailynn's Prayer. So far, the total fundraising has reached a total of $4000!!!!!!!! Thank you! Thank You! Thank you to everyone for helping us to bring Jailynn home! We are hoping to travel sometime this month and still need to raise money. I know that God is providing for our family through the unselfish and generous giving from special and wonderful people like you!
