A Foster Sister

Every report we receive on A talks of his foster sister. How he is good about sharing with her & playing with her. When we received our videos of A back in November, she was in these videos. When you watch the videos with the 2 of them, you can see the sibling rivalry between them. You can see the love he has for her & the patience she has to help him do everyday things. I kept telling myself I needed to find out if she had a family, but I would get busy with things & forget.

We received another update on A yesterday & once again, this little girl was mentioned. This reminded me, I needed to start looking to see if she had a family, see what I could find out about this little girl that means so much to my son.

Yesterday I finally did it..I started looking to see if she had a family & surprisingly it didn't take as long as I thought it would to locate them. I started making 3 post on Facebook in different adoption groups. I explained I knew what she looked like & the bit I knew & could guess about her. I had a few people answer that they had a child that met the description, but in a different city, etc. Finally one lady wrote saying her daughter matched the description & was in the same city. I wrote back a few questions for her, but while I waited for her answer I decided to go stalk look through her page. Wouldn't you know, a few post in her page & there was the only picture of her daughter & it was her!!! I about jumped out of my chair.

The lady then proceeded to friend me on Facebook & ask me for my email. She wanted to send me a better picture of her daughter just to make sure it really was her. When I opened up my email, there was no doubt in my mind...this was the kind little girl that is A's sister. In order to confirm this I was able to send her back 2 videos that we received with her in it. When I sent these videos I had no idea that they had never seen a video of their daughter. She told me what a blessing I was & what joy I brought them by sharing these videos.

We went on to talk on & off throughout the day. I found out they leave tomorrow, Friday, to head to China to get their daughter. They plan on trying to meet the foster mother & hopefully get a 'look' at A for us.

She asked for a picture of A to put in her daughters room so that she had a piece of China to come home to. We are already talking about Skyping & visits.

I am so happy I was able to locate this family & I am excited for all there is to come. I know it will be hard for these 2, but I hope by being able to keep in touch, it will be of some comfort to them.


  1. Wow, this just gave me chills and brought tears to my eyes. So cool.

  2. OH my goodness! What a crazy and amazing story! I really hope you both are able to stay in touch!

  3. That is amazing! I hope your kids get to continue their relationship here- what a gift to have a bit of their first home :)
