A Snuggle for Brett?

Most of you know that I have been to China three times, to adopt 3 daughters. This month is the 4th anniversary of our trip to China where we met Gracie in the capitol city of her province. Hangzhou is a beautiful city in the winter, and I imagine it is gorgeous in the spring.

Two years later, we returned to Hangzhou and adopted another daughter who was from the same orphanage as Gracie. On this second trip to this province, we were able to take a trip to the city where they lived their early lives and visit the orphanage.
There are still several children in this orphanage that I have been advocating for and trying to find families for during the last couple of years. And today, I want to share with you a story about another one that has come to my attention. His name is "Brett".

The winter is coming, and it’s good for sleeping. After lunch, all the kids went to bed. Bretts’s face is red from the warmth of the quilt. He likes sleeping, and loves to bury his head into the quilt. He is a sound sleeper.

When it was time to get up, the kids left the bed one after another except for Brett. He was still sleeping soundly. After some time, a small head appeared out of the quilt and Brett looked at the others confusedly. The nanny helped him put on his clothes, and he sat on the stool with a half-awake mind. After a while he didn’t have any facial expressions, since his mind was not fully clear after the nap. Don’t know how long it took, but Brett finally called “Ayi” ("Aunt"). He woke up fully at last!

Brett was born in November 2009, so he is just past 2 years old. He has some issues with his heart, but isn't he the sweetest little boy!! If you would like to know more about him, please contact Xiaoqing Cai, with BAAS adoption agency: xqcai@comcast.net

I am so hoping that his family will see his sweet face and know that he is their son and hurry, hurry, hurry to get him and take him home to help his little heart and to snuggle in his own warm bed.
