It's that time of year again! Tomorrow Krista Dolan, Director of our Gracie's Room/ First Hugs program, and I (Moya Smith, executive director of Dianjiang Kids International) head off to China.

We are each loaded down with two large suitcases full of donations. Thanks to all who sent us items, bought things from our Amazon Wish list and even hand made items. We will be posting pictures of these items in First Hugs. We will also be sharing some neat activities and programing we have planned.

We will also be squeezing some cute baby cheeks like this:

And playing with some sweetness like this:

And dancing with treasures like this:

And feasting our eyes on:

We will be giving them all lots of love, teaching new things to staff and making sure the children are doing well. We will be sharing supplies with others in the orphanage who have so little.
