Good Bye Gong Lu
Yesterday, with lots of tears, Gong Lu returned to China. With these tears, Gong Lu is also very excited to share her new look with all of her friends at her orphanage. Ms. Xu is LOADED with gifts for the children and nannies at the orphanage. Gong Lu is so excited to share all of her new toys with the other children, always thinking of others.

We are so grateful to the host family, Lisa Ferrell, Jim Jackson and their children, who graciously opened their home to Ms. Xu and Gong Lu. They have all become great friends and I am sure that they will miss each other terribly.

Thank you also to ever yone else who has helped and supported this little girl along her journey. There are so many people who have helped her transformation -- too numerous to count. You can tell with Gong Lu's smile how happy she is with her new look.

Stay tuned for the next chapter of this story, we hope that her hope for a family will come true soon.

Thank you all for making her dreams come true!
