"You didn't give me these arms, but you gave them a family to hold.
You didn't give me my body but you've truly shaped my soul. Your love has given me wings and how my spirit soars. Knowing that I always will be yours. Forever and for always I am yours."

Our first day together

 Signing my name and adding my fingerprint to seal the agreement.  I mistakenly put my thumbprint in Daddy Stephen's part.  Sorry my love but now officially you are me!

We have just entered the 24 hour Harmonious Period.  We have one night with them to decide if the adoption match will work before we will return to legalize the adoption.  I am there with the 2 directors from the SWI and the SWI doctor.  On the far left are the Zhejiang province officials.

Off on our hotwheels to find some lunch.  You can only imagine the stares that one white fat woman, one hot brown girl, and her beautiful three Chinese daughters (two of whom are in the biggest "trolley"to grace the streets of Zhejiang) garner.  We are quite the circus side show no doubt.

Fries dipped in ice cream?  I took Meisyn about 30 seconds to figure this tasty combination.  Much to our sadness the only place that would fit our trolley through the door was the KFC.  We made the best of it!

Jaeya loves french fries dipped in ketsup.  Smart girl!

Or if we had held out a little longer we could have had the tripe, gizzards or chicken heads.


  1. Love all of the pictures and each day Lia is so excited to see them. Makes me laugh because after she came home all we could get her to eat were french fries and ice cream! Still her favorites.

  2. Mikayla, your mom thinks you're a hot brown girl. Well you are, but eww. All our best, can't wait to meet the new Ellisons.
