Random shots from our trip to the zoo











We took a trip to the zoo today in between the rain showers. We didn't see many animals, but we still had fun. I did get a couple of nice shots of some blooming flowers.

Of course on our way there Ana Claire asked me if we were going to see any Chinese people there and if they would take her from me. This has to be weighing heavily on her mind. I continue to reassure her, but I can see with her getting older and very aware of her surroundings this truly worries her. For now I am just holding on to her tight and continually telling her that she is my baby girl and no one is taking her from me. I am continuing to get private emails of people sharing with me and offering advice. I deeply aprreciate all the emails, prayers and advice. It is really nice to know that we are not alone. We are looking into finding someone for her to talk to. I know in time she will overcome her fears.

Wonderful pics of your beautiful family.
I know that must break your heart when Ana Claire asks questions like that... I wish I could help. I pray Jesus will give her peace and security to know that she is home with her family forever...
God Bless You

Answers to some questions.
The hippo isn't real, it is a statue in the water.
The flowers were real and I took the photos. Those are the best flowers photos I have ever taken.
