Documents To China
As of today the dossier we were compiling for the last several months is complete and on it's way to China. All the paper chasing and scrambling to get our dossier prepared is finally over!

If this is what it looks like outside today...

How can there be one of these on the wall across from my desk?

What's all the fuss about lady bugs?
In the China adoption community lady bugs are said to bring good luck!


  1. "In the China adoption community lady bugs are said to bring good luck!"
    In the Fujian, China all winds are saying hello to your great family!

    From Xiao feng(Windy^^)

  2. I should say l learn a lot about Chinese and its culture from you. I don't know there is such a saying that lady bugs can bring good luck. But I think god will bless you anyway because you are a great mother.


Thank you so much for stopping by! We love to hear from you and appreciate every comment! Your thoughts, well wishes, and words of wisdom will be preserved here in our blog, we plan to turn it into a hard cover book for our daughter.
