Our Thoughts and Prayers Are With You

Jay and Candace,

Unfortunately, I have no useful contacts to share with you, but want you to know that we have signed the petition and forwarded it on. We are praying for you and sharing your story. We have been waiting for our daughter from China for 3 years now and I can't even imagine getting there after all of the waiting and having to leave without her. My heart breaks for you. I pray that things take a turn for the positive today.

Thinking of your family....

Praying the CDC does the right thing!

Jay, Thank you for this extremely thoughtful, well written update on Harper Yue Ye's case. I hope and pray that the CDC does the right thing and allows Harper to come home with her new family.

In hope,

I can't tell you how upset I have been since I found this out. China seems to do what they want (hence the wait time) and I am not sure that I would know what would convince them to change their mind, but I do have a question....since you can only get TB from exposure...if she is sent back to the orphanage, wouldn't she possible get it again? Obviously they don't know who has it bc if they did, they would have dealt with the problem already and the babies would be protected. I am not understanding if they are going to put her somewhere else or what it really going on, but I would be leary of putting her back in that institution anyway. I completely understand the need to go back and esp having a child at home bc our 2 wks there was pretty miserable and long bc we were away from our other kids, but I wish there was some way one of you could stay and get an apt (heard they are cheap and I think China should pay :) and keep her away from any further exposure! That's just my opinion and I want you to know that I am praying for your whole family..all four of you..I will keep a close eye on this and rejoice when God shows HIS power and Harper is released to you soon!!!
In my prayers,

Please don't leave her

As a fellow adoptive parent with a child in my group that was in questionable health, you can not leave your daughter in China without one of you. I know you see only obstacles...bills, jobs, your son, time. But your daughter is depending on you guys to protect her and care for her and get her home. One of you needs to return home to go back to work, reassure and care for your son and get aid from where you can at home. The other needs to stay and care for your daughter and your agency should be providing you with guides and medical help as well as advocacy. I am appalled at the agencies that take your money, place the child and do not follow through with support in China. Holt International has an office with full time workers at the White Swan Hotel. They may be able to help you in some way, they are wonderful people. You may also qualify for family leave with your employer.
If you leave your daughter in China, you have no idea how that will make her feel...abandoned again.

I am forwarding this

I have a friend who is a physician in DC. She is specializing in health care foreign policy and has many connections. I am hoping that if she cannot do anything that perhaps she knows someone who can help you. As an adoptive parent, my heart breaks for you. I'll keep praying for you, your family and your sweet litte girl who so needs to be with her forever family.

A little help I hope

I have posted the YouTube video on my Facebook page. I also made a post on my blog at this address http://funder5.blogspot.com/2009/08/help-bring-harper-home.html and I also signed the petiton. I hope his little bit helps and I wish I could be of more help. We will be praying for you guys and that your family can become one whole physical unit soon!!!

In His Hands,
