Gong Xi Fa Cai
The year of the tiger will start on February 14, 2010 and will end on February 2, 2011. The Tiger (associated with good fortune, power, and royalty), is viewed with both fear and respect; hence, their protection and wisdom is sought after. Many people believe the tiger, and not the lion, is the true king of beasts. According to Chinese thinking people born in this year have the following abilities: agile natural leaders, alert, energetic, independent, far-sighted, charming, friendly, well-liked, loyal, intelligent, confident, courageous, powerful, strong, self-reliant, sacrificing, optimistic, relentlessly competitive, good strategists and tacticians and because of this they will have great careers in Music, Acting, Writing, Advertising, Management, Aviation, Travel, Entrepreneur, Politics.
I hope you will help celebrate Chinese New Year with 1/5 of the world's population. Thank your lucky stars that you are not in China listening to two weeks of fire crackers which will slow down after lantern festival.
We wanted to give a special thanks to the ISOM family for all of their help taking the babies pictures!
Here is also a link to a video of the babies:

Our latest two adoptions were to the Netherlands and Virginia, USA. We currently have 53 babies under the age of 3 and a half at two foster homes. Recently we learned that 6 babies have been matched and we are waiting for their families to come and get them.
