Amanda: Our First Grader

Baby Amanda was one of the original six babies who came with me on September 13, 2005. She originally lived in Iowa with her sister and brother and her family adopted a disrupted adoption SB girl. Here is a letter from Amy:

Things are going good... Mike and I were able to get transfers with Wells Fargo Bank to Charlotte, North Carolina    :O)
Amanda is going to be a Southern Bell, can't wait to hear her pick up the accent!

We have loved Iowa, but it is just so far from everywhere... Grandparents, DisneyWorld, Beach...
Amanda just finished kindergarten and she's about to be the big 1st grader!

I love the fact that the girls plays golf in a tutu. That is some serious fashion sense.

Life, love and laughter,

At Starfish, we have taken care of 146 children to date, arranged more than 170 surgeries and had 65 international adoptions, so our little starfishes live all over the globe: the US, Netherlands, Norway, France, Spain, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Canada, Australia and in China. Our latest adoption, Carl, went to a family in the US.  We currently have 47 babies under the age of 3 and a half at the foster home.  We have 7 babies who are matched and we are waiting for their families to come and get them, so there will be a mass exodus in the summer.

We had two medical teams successfully completed 35 cleft lip and palate surgeries in April and May.  We are so proud of these teams and want to thank them so much for their efforts.  Our grateful thanks to the Xian Children's Hospital for being the venue and for working so well with these teams.
