I will not leave you
as orphans; I will come to you. ~ John 14:18
On the morning of October 26, 2007, we woke up with
no hint of how this day would change the course of our
lives. This was the day that we would see the face of our
beautiful son for the first time as God's plan to grow our
family was confirmed in our hearts and minds. We were
contacted by Karla Thrasher at Lifeline, asking if we
would be interested in reviewing the file of a little boy
named Guan YuanYang.
Guan YuanYang was found on November 6, 2006 by the
roadside of Xiaobian Market in Chang'an Town, Dongguan
City. The boy was sent to be raised in the Children's
Welfare Institute of Dongguan City. According to the
examination results and his development at that time, his
dob is estimated on November 4, 2006. He was named Guan
At 1 - 2 months old Guan YuanYang was quick to respond to
the surrounding, will be scared or respond if the sound of
opening the door of speaking is aloud. He will cry noisily
when being hungry and lie on bed quietly when being full.
At the age of 3 - 4 months he has richer racial
expressions and when he is full after the feeding of the
caretaker, he will smile contentedly. He can put his
finger into mouth to suck and roll over from back to side.
At the age of 5 - 6 months he can pull away the things on
his body, support his head up well when sitting with help.
His limb's movement is great and often makes noises to
attract adults' attention. He can stretch the legs
straight when standing with support. He can reach his
hands for toys, often kicks the bed with his strong feet
when lying on the bed. He can babble.
Guan YuanYang is a lovely boy who is fond of laugh. He
usually likes to lie on the bed listening to music and
also likes being teased by the caretakers. ~ Dongguan CWI
