Bring Me Hope Nightwalk, Children's Day activities (a little early), birthdays, new wheelchairs for Eagles Wings 4 and just general fun...May was a great month at Eagles Wings!
What a great month! We had kids adopted and kids waiting to get adopted, birthday parties and a new three wheel electric bike for Eagles Wings 6.
2/24/13 -- Spring Festival
Spring Festival is the most important holiday in China. On the first day of the new year I get to go and give the children *hong bao* or red envelopes with money in them. This is fun for me and really fun for the kids.
Lantern Festival which marks the last day was yesterday. Lots of firecrackers, fireworks, and beautiful lanterns floating in the sky. By far my favorite day of the year here in China. These are the Eagles Wings 6 kids enjoying their lanterns while Hong Wei shoots off fireworks for them.

1/21/13 -- Adoption Day Again!
Congratulations to another family lucky enough to add an eaglet to their nest. Zi Ping is a special boy, full of curiosity and adventure, and we will miss his special brand of spunk, but we rejoice in the whole world of opportunity that will open to him in his new family.
1/14/13 -- And One Less Again
We had the privilege of meeting Guo Ce's family when they visited Eagles Wings this weekend. A wonderful family just got even better. We will certainly miss his ready smile and his exuberance for life. We wish Guo Ce and his family all the best as they embark on this new adventure as a family of five!

We are so thrilled that JingYi is now on her way to the US with her new parents. She wasn't with us very long, but we came to love her very much. We will miss her sparkle!
Games Project - Can You Help???
I am compiling a games library in each home and need some help. I need an individual or group to serve as the collection spot and be willing to ship (or bring if you are coming here soon) the games to us.
I also need individuals who will purchase the games and send them to the collection spot.
It's simple! Please take a minute to check out this wishlist, as soon as there is a collection spot I will post that information here. Thanks! GAMES FOR EAGLES WINGS
