Jasmine was almost 14 years old when she was adopted from China. She has decided to share her story to encourage others to adopt older children, to help others understand what it was like to live in an orphanage, and to give encouragement to other children who will be joining their forever family. She writes her blog in Chinese and a friend translates it for her.
Jasmine has watched me write my blog for over a year now. We have had many conversations about why I share our family’s stories. Whenever I write about her, I ask permission to share whatever she has told me. There are things that she has chosen not to share at this time and I respect that.
Jasmine’s life has touched many people and we hear all the time from people who are praying for her. If you would like to read more about Jasmine’s story you can check out our Facebook group Seriously Blessed by Adoption or you can go to my personal blog Seriously Blessed and click on the category marked Jasmine.
She is truly an amazing child with the sweetest personality. We have been so blessed by this beautiful girl with a smile that lights up the room. Her life has been far from easy, yet she continues to be the sweetest soul. I hope her stories touch your heart as much as they do mine.
Lisa, Jasmine’s mama
