Six Months

6 months ago today we arrived in China and met you face-to-face
We spent 2 weeks living out of suitcases, staying in 3 different hotels, traveling from Northern to Southern China and then back to Beijing.  Slowly, we started to see your true personality
We brought you home to a world so different from everything you had ever known. 
Since coming home you have started gymnastics
and swimming
You have grown 2 inches & gained 5 pounds
you have learned to run, climb & jump

You have taught us that no matter where a child is born...they always end up with their family

Happy Anniversary-isn't it amazing how fast time flies....they adapt so quickly to our families, it's as if they've always been there...

She is adorable. Thanks for the comments on RQ. I like the idea of being close to some Western food (McD's and Pizza Hut). What other sites is there to see???

Thanks again

She is doing so well! What an amazing journey, and I'm so glad I've been able to be along for the ride, virtually. Still bummed we JUST MISSED each other in China! Congrats on 6 months! She's beautiful.
