Eight China Adoption Referrals in July!

Rhonda Phillips of St. Louis was one of Children's Hope International's eight referral families for March 22, 2006 log-in-dates. That means that Rhonda and seven other families saw their new daughters for the first time on Tuesday, July 21!

The eight little girls are all from Shangrao in Jiangxi Province, and range in age from 10 -15 months old. On the same day we also received 2 Seeking Confirmation Letters, which are official referrals for China Waiting Children. Congratulations to all the proud parents! Our next log in date is March 27, 2006.

China Program Director Tina Qualls was thrilled to share Referral Day with Rhonda. With Rhonda are Aunt Karen (left) and Aunt Darlene (middle). Congratulations to the whole family!
