Uncle Sam Wants You

We're On Our Way to China!


  1. Have a great time, Marla and family! I'm sure we'll see you sometime in GZ! We are staying at the Victory, but I'm sure our paths will cross at some point!

    Go get that precious girl! :)


  2. Hi Marla, Sj, Jake and Ava, We are thinking of you all and sending you our hugs and love. What an amazing journey you are on. Enjoy every moment as you welcome your new sister and daughter. We will be waiting with hugs, and towels! :) Safe travels. Schapira5

  3. Yes! Finally meeting your girl! Enjoy your trip!

  4. I am thinking about you Marla, Jakey & Ava... soooo exciting! I will keep watching you guys on this wonderful journey! <3

  5. I am so excited for you! I have followed your journey to your daughter for the last two months! She is a beauty! Our daughter was also in a loving foster family when we adopted her at age 5 1/2. It is a blessing that she has received so much love and excellent care in China. Wishing you all the best as she comes into your lovely family! Congratulations!!


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.
