A few days after her arrival there was no doubt in anyone's mind that she was supposed to be here. She said she "loved it here" and we love her. My middles introduced her to Jesus at lunch her second day on the front porch over a ham sandwich.
Corinne wants to experience all things American. A friend said they hoped I told her that we weren't a normal American family, referring to our 18 kids and the fact that we homeschool, live out in the country and none of our kids have cell phones. I think it's a good thing for a smart young Chinese girl to go back to her country and share this experience with her friends. Maybe she can be a seed to change the One Child Policy that her country enforces or to insure them that all America isn't about guns and drugs (which she believed)
And in the meantime, she is having a wonderful time catching crayfish in the river.
