Our New Friends

We had a great day today getting to know our new friends, Rita (left) and Lily (right)! They are absolutely precious and I am so happy and blessed to have them in my life. I brought them to our house to meet everyone. Then we took them to our favorite Chinese restaurant. We have plans to visit an Asian market and cook our own Chinese food! Well...they will cook and I will do whatever they tell me to :) Gracie and Wesleigh were so excited!!

Rita and Lily waited over 3 months to be matched with me. I never even knew this program existed until I was contacted. If you live in my area, please consider taking part in this great program. In fact, I am sure this program is available at other universities also. It is called the International Hospitality Foundation and the email at LSU is

I am quite certain you will be seeing much more of Lily and Rita!!

I'm going to see if they have that in my state. We would love it! The local Universtity does have a great program called China Care. They have adopted Chinese/Asian children come once a month to learn about the culture. It is great to connect with other families and the students.

Love following your blog. Don't post much.

Thanks for sharing.
Caroline, John and Hannah Grace
