Dianbai Friends

A few weeks ago we got a wonderful visit from one of Miyah's Dianbai (China) friends and his family.

Nearly four years ago, only a day apart, Andrew and Miyah were brought to the Dianbai Social Welfare Institute and assigned cribs right next to one another. No one in their lives now can tell them how they spent that first year together, but I'm sure they enjoyed each others company.

Andrew is such a sweet, dimple-smiling little guy. You can't help but love him!

When we talked with Miyah about him visiting, she was so excited. She referred to him as "my best friend Andrew". Mind you, she didn't really remember our last visit to see them two years ago. But I guess there are some friendships that never die.

The K's (name omitted for privacy) are a wonderful family and we always enjoy catching up with them. I only wish we lived closer. We had such a great time with Kevin and Pam in China in 2004. A few days after we came home from that trip we all talked about how we missed Kevin and Pam.

Since the "K" kids didn't travel to China, our kids met theirs for the first time two years ago and immediately hit it off. Our Matt and their Rob are the same age, as well as their Lauren and our Megan. I've come to realize how rare it is to find a family so similar to ours.

Hi Cindy,
It is so neat to find another family so much like yours! I love that when it happens! Lots of blessings from China! Mei Lin and Megan have changed a little over the summer, I think. Prettier than ever!!
