Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri


Ivy's Friend, Ma Pei

While we waited through this adoption process for Ivy, I watched her friends be adopted one by one.  I was so happy for the children to have homes, but sad for the children left behind.  A month after making the decision to adopt Ivy, I saw this little cutie on the list for adoption.

 Ma Pei on far left, Rebecca (adopted), another friend, and Ivy

Little did I know that Ma Pei was Ivy's friend at the orphanage.  Ivy has quite a few pictures of the two of them together in her photo album she brought from the orphanage.  As we were looking through the pictures together, I asked Ivy if Ma Pei has a mama and baba.  She sadly and slowly shook her head no.  I wanted to bring them both home.

She has just turned 7 and is available for adoption off the shared list.  She is in school and Ivy was in her class.  She must be quite clever, since she and Ivy were together in school (not just a bragging mama).  She has an obvious deformity of her left hand/arm.  Her right hand has had surgery on the fingers, and I believe she has some issues with her toes on one foot.  But, look at that beautiful face!  I think about her chances of a good life in China...and I'm just praying she finds a family soon.  I have a few more pictures if anyone is interested.  I also have a top-notch agency that I recommend!

Oh...if we were in a position to adopt again.....She needs a family.

Oh I wish I could adopt again. She would certainly be one I would be drawn to! I hope she find a family soon and that you can find them so Ivy can stay in touch. Ma Pei is gorgeous!

She reminds me so much of my oldest daughter. I'd love to bring her home but we are already in the process to adopt another little one from China. I will be praying she finds a family. She's beautiful!


She is just beautiful.
Could this be her?

Hep. B carrier; deformed left upper limb; post-operation of deformed right hand

So hoping her family finds her.

I'm not so sure I like the shared list. It certainly doesn't help these little ones with scary sounding SNs. If only we could see their sweet little faces...


Having adopted SN back in 07, I'm not up to speed on the shared list. Does a family have to have their dossier already in China to be considered? Please advise.

Wendy in OH, curious...

Cheri---Look at those four beautiful girls! I have seen this little one on the shared list for awhile---she is simply stunning---I hope your advocating finds her family---and soon. Keep chatting---her family will find her!

Our Journey To Eden

What a wonderful picture and what a beautiful little girl. I pray she finds a family soon.



I am interested in learning more about Ma Pei. Please email me:



She is beautiful. I am going to ask my husband tonight. He is done but I am sure there will be another. Keep us posted.



Can you give me her dob and a little info . . .


Have you heard if this little one has a family? A friend of mine is trying to find out more about her and can't locate her on the shared list. Is she on an agency only list? Her email is
Could you send her an email on how to find this little girl on the list?

Thanks, Elisa
