"By adopting a child and helping them reach their potential, they help us reach ours. An adopted child is not an unwanted child; to the contrary. They are a child who was searched for, prayed for, cried for, begged for; received by arms that ached, making empty hearts full. Love is meant to be shared." Author unknown

Update on Corban

I sent a care package to Corban this week: candies for the kids & nannies, a stuffed animal, a few summer outfits and a camera, plus a picture of our family to introduce us to the director and nannies at the orphanage.

I was surprised to receive an update on him yesterday morning already when I just ordered the package on Monday.  Unfortunately, we didn't get any new pictures of him but we did receive growth updates and a little information about him. Looks like sharing will not be an easy thing for him.

Here is what they say: 

He can walk very well. He doesn't speak yet.

He dislike congee. His main food is rice cereal and milk powder.

He is getting along with friends very well. He likes to wander around in the room and take other kids ' toys.

When he is unhappy, please give him some toys.

He understands the aunt 's words.

height :  84cm
weight:  10.5kg
head C:  46cm
chest C:  48cm
teeth: 16
feet length: 12cm

Most of these numbers are the same as his 21 month update but he has grown a cm so that is good.  The foot measurement will help give me an idea on shoes too.

I also ordered a birthday package to be sent to Tegan as he will turn 2 on Tuesday. I am hoping to receive some pictures of him and his friends sharing the cake.  We shall see.
