Jesse danced along to the guitars as we sang Christmas songs to him and his friends! He enjoyed every minute of it. We also celebrated Christmas by making homemade ornaments with each of the children, and proudly hung Jesse’s masterpiece on the tree!

We just celebrated fall with a festival for the kids, and they loved it. Jesse wasn’t thrilled with his Elmo costume’s hat, so he chose not to wear it during the party, but he had a good time nonetheless! He sat so still while he had a pumpkin painted on his face, and he enjoyed going to all the different booths.

We just had the opportunity to celebrate Jesse turning 10 years old! Jesse is a special little boy, and it’s our joy to celebrate him. He loved eating chocolate cake at his party, and he’s a big fan of his new stuffed animal toy! Knowing and loving Jesse is a privilege.

Summertime in Luoyang is really hot, and the kids have had a wonderful time playing in the pool. Jesse spent his time splashing around and making everyone laugh. He kept his feet kicking almost the whole time, and enjoyed every second!

Jesse has a new favorite way to play – spinning around in circles. He especially loves it when others are watching his antics! He’s such a sweet boy, and we are so thankful to know and care for him.

Jesse is very content. He likes to be in the playroom with his friends, where they can sit in the ball pit or swing on the swings!
