Chinese Adoptee Mother to carry Olympic Torch!

Congratulations! And I did vote :-)

To all of our dear, dear friends of Half the Sky - YOU made it happen!

This week in Beijing we got some wonderful news. Thanks to the concerted
efforts of our most extraordinary HTS family, I am going to carry the
Olympic Torch in Beijing!!


I do not yet know if I will be permitted to run with the children. That
will be up to the Olympic Committee. But you can be sure of one thing:

Whether or not I am allowed to run WITH the children, the world will know
that I am running FOR them.

Thank you, everyone, for helping to share the Olympic spirit with China’s
orphans. I know that those children who are old enough to understand will
be so proud that they have a place in China’s grand celebration.

With love and thanks beyond measure,

Jenny
