  1. Can you believe it?! One more day! Hi to Jakey and Ava from Lucie and Lila who follow your blog every day. Lila says "see China again!" to let me know it's time to check in. Your photos are great and you all look so happy. Have a great day!

    Sending hugs!

  2. All of the anticipation and planning and only one more day...that truly is amazing. I hope the day goes smoothly and Tian Tian knows by just being in the presence of you, SJ, Jake and Ava that she is a very lucky girl and there is nothing to worry about!

  3. Blessings all around:

    For your daughter to be, may she have a wonderful day, day 1 of her forever family.

    For the mama and baba, Oft it is said how lucky the children are to have a home with you. The real truth is you are the blessed ones, the fortunate ones, to have the honor to raise this child.

    Godspeed into your future family!
