School Daze

It's back to school time all over the world, and here is no exception!

Elizabeth attends class in the mornings in the foster home, so that she can improve her Chinese and do fun arts and crafts. But we know that since she is older, she needs a bit more of an educational challenge, so she also has a daily class with her foster mom.

Elizabeth's English is improving by leaps and bounds, and each day she learns new words. She knows all of her ABCs and the sound each letter makes. She's even learning to recognize and sound out some words! Today she is working on the letter S, with words like sit, soup, and sat. She's such a smart little girl!

She's also studying math and her shapes... She's learning so much, and she loves class! Soon she'll know more than we do!


  1. It's been so wonderful to see Elizabeth thrive as she has. She is growing into such a bright and beautiful young lady and I pray that her forever family finds her soon!

    And I must add, that her hair is growing very pretty on her, too!! :)

    May God bless each of you for all of the love and hope for a future that you lavish upon these deserving children... you are clearly showing Jesus to these kids through your actions, and it's wonderful to see!

  2. Way to go Elizabeth! Such sweet pictures!

  3. Oh way to go Elizabeth!!
    I am thrilled to see this. I had no idea ya'll worked with older children too! Hooray!!
    Elizabeth- you can be anything you set your mind to be!

  4. She is such a beautiful little girl. She is going to make some family very happy.
