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.
