One Year Ago Today Across The Ocean Far, Far Away...

We decided to start a new family tradition- every year we will re-live our incredible journey to bring home Sasha Jade by watching ourselves on the computer from this side of the ocean... one year later and one year wiser... Your comments are always welcome:

The Journey Is The Reward

is where the heart is,
I am leaving part of mine in China. 
Ever since we arrived 
I have been thinking
"how will I ever leave here?"
I feel like a different person;
Marla BC, Marla AC
the very first morning that I woke up in my hotel room alone 
with all THREE of my children
I felt like a lucky ducky
with all my ducks in a row
I xink I have seen this sign somewhere before...
by the way
there is such a thing as car cologne
and food does not need to have eyes
we have all changed on many levels during this incredible experience
there really is an Ancient Chinese Secret,
Xi Xi gave it to us to take home,
it's great for mosquito bites and works on headaches too
angels appear in unusual places   
with beautiful faces

 and they come from far away places
to bring smiles to our faces
(it's really ok for a Jew-da to receive a blessing in front of three Buddhas)
we must go through the bad times
to get to the better times
