Today marks the second week our bundle of joy has been home. JunFen continues to settle into her new life with her forever family. We had a week of fun, establishing more daily routine, a few doctor appointments and just "being" together.
JunFen has amazed us with her memory! She has been listening to some fairy tales in Mandarin and can recite the entire stories now from memory. She has such a sweet expression as she recites the stories to MaMa & BaBa that she brings us to tears.
JunFen is like a sponge and so hungry to learn. She asks us to explain and name what she sees around her and is teaching herself English using our electronic translator!
We have also been touched by JunFen's attraction to her new found faith in Jesus. She loves to see pictures of Jesus and did wonderfully during her first visit to church. The Gospel passage for Sunday was - "I will not leave you orphans!"
Our language is limited in explaining our faith - but we're sure the Holy Spirit is touching her heart as she breaks into a big smile at the name of Jesus. A few times we were late in saying our mealtime prayers and JunFen reminded us by making the sign of the cross!
JunFen will go to a Mandarin immersion school for two half days this week and then start full days next week. She has visited the school and seems excited about it. The only down side has been her dislike of the color of the uniforms - she's become a fashionista!
Thanks again for all of your prayers and support. We are so blessed and pray more families come to know the joy of older child adoption.
