I have been picking up clothes for Jacob here and there. I scored at one yard sale and got 12 pairs of shorts, three tank tops, a pair of jeans, and button up sweatshirt all for only $5. I am guessing that Jacob is just starting to fit in to size 4T based on his weight of 33 lbs and his height of 39 inches. Does this seem accurate to any moms out there with kids of a similar size?
Tomorrow night there is going to be a special on the PBS Point of View show about adoption from China. The show will be following the journey of an American family adopting an eight year old girl from China. The show will be airing at 10:00 or 10:30 in most areas and you can see a clip at the link here.
Here is what is written about the show.
What is it like to be torn from your Chinese foster family, put on a plane with strangers and wake up in a new country, family and culture? Stephanie Wang-Breal’s Wo Ai Ni (I Love You) Mommy is the story of Fang Sui Yong, an 8-year-old orphan, and the Sadowskys, the Long Island Jewish family that travels to China to adopt her. Sui Yong is one of 70,000 Chinese children now being raised in the United States. Through her eyes, we witness her struggle with a new identity as she transforms from a timid child into someone that no one — neither her new family nor she — could have imagined. A co-production of American Documentary/POV and the Diverse Voices Project, presented in association with the Center for Asian American Media, with funding provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
