Home Sweet Home!

It's easy to keep busy on the airplane...
when you have....
finally off the plane after 15 hours!
thank you Auntie, Muncle, and cousins for the decorations
and Grammy and Dave for the food and welcome balloons
and Grandma Mary for coming to the airport 

we have all showered and have gone to bed, 
after a long journey home,
we are hoping for a good night's sleep!


  1. Welcome home to the new little American citizen on the perfect day!

  2. I feel so fortunate that I was able to share part of this journey with you, Jake, Ava and Sasha Tian Tian. Jake and Ava were beyond wonderful as travel companions, and have so much love and patience with their new sister. Sasha is blessed to have a new home and life filled with so many opportunities and a warm, generous family to help her grow.
    SJ and Marla, you both are amazing people and parents because you have open your hearts and home to give Sasha this gift!
    I willl sign off because I need to go MEOW, then need to eat some BIM!
    Tell Sasha that she can always call her Yi Ma to take her MEOW and I will "carry" her in my heart forever!!!!

  3. So thankful you all made it home safe and sound! The number one question I have is what size is your daughter wearing... I can't figure out what size to take to China???

  4. Welcome Back! What an awesome trip you had. Hope you get some much-needed rest.

    So happy for you all.

  5. Welcome Home!!!!!
    Give us a call when things settle down and we can get together! Glad you made it home safely!


  6. Glad you are home safe.Once again, thanks so much for the wonderful journey together. I wish you and your family all the best. Joy, peace and love. Amy D.


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.
