Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice when He could do something about it. But I'm afraid God might ask me the same question.

I am smiling ear to ear this morning!!  I just got an update on our precious little guy.He looks so happy.
Here are a few of the questions we asked:
 How does he feel about being adopted by our family?   He is very happy and very much would like to be adopted.
What makes Xi He Hai scared?
He is afraid of being disfavored by the people who loves him. 
What makes him happy?  
Play games or play with other children makes him happy. 
What are his favorite type of toys so we can be sure to bring some for him when we meet?  
Legos and electronic toys.
To be honest, I really wanted to hear how he felt about being adopted.  He looks like he has a lot of fun with his friends, it would be very logical for him to be scared about being adopted and just want to stay with his friends and caretakers.  I am sure he will be nervous, but it sounds like he is at least being prepared for being adopted and meeting us.  

I have started my packing in hopes to eek in before the October moon festival  (need to make a note to add some legos to our suitcase)... it will be a miracle so we are praying and our amazing adoption coordinator is working on it!    If you have anyone in your home that is and adult (18 or over)  when you adopt, you have to have background checks, fingerprints and a homestudy done for them...  We would really like to be home before Collin's 18th bday so we can save ourselves a bunch of time and $$, and stress.    We should know by next week if we are going to make this deadline... please send up a prayer for us if you would.
