Liangping, Chongqing

The earthquake in China is striking kind of close to home for us. Perhaps you've seen on the news how five children were killed and at least 100 were injured when an elementary school collapsed in rural Lianping County in the Chongqing municipality of China. Liangping County SWI is the orphanage where Sera is from. There's a strong possibility that she either had siblings or cousins in the building when it collapsed. If you look closely at this picture, you can see interior blackboards on what is now the left face of the building. That means the floors and ceilings and walls all separated from the building itself. Our thoughts are definitely with Sera's biological family this week.
