What's The Scoop, Chicken Soup?

A Special Birthday Wish From Afar:
We love you Lucie!
Auntie "Chicken Soup"
Ava Rose 


  1. Good morning on your big day!!! We are so excited thinking about Tian Tian and her forever family and the love and joy you will bring to each other. We admire all the hard work you've done to prepare for this day and will be thinking of you all and eagerly waiting for updates when you're able to get to it. Thank you so much for Lucie's first bday wish -- I can't wait to show it to her when she wakes up! Love you all -- Auntie Leisl

  2. What a big day for Tian Tian and your family. How excited? Did everyone sleep well? I cann't wait to see your new whole family picture.

  3. 7 am here...7 pm. in Nanning, you are now +1. I didn't sleep a wink last night. Hit the refresh button thousands of times before heading to bed...tossed and turned all night. Looking forward to the family photo of 5. We are all thinking of you. You have done an awesome job.
    Hugs Shelli, Jason, Rou Rou and Hui Hui
