Thank you all so much for the emails and comments you are leaving. It really means a lot! Here's Maia resting comfortably for a few minutes after her traumatic doctor visit. She is so pretty!

Bath time

Our guides, Kathy and Grace, preparing us moments before bringing in the babies. We were supposed to be the 5th family to get our baby, but the fourth baby needed a diaper change, so we were bumped up to 4th.

Hi Mommy and Daddy and Maia,
I hope Maia is not crying and that you are having a good time in China. We had "chicken on the bone" and I had 3 pieces, not my record. We switched classes with Mr. Tolson today and played " marshmellow bingo" {I ate about 20 marshmellows].We also went to Mrs.Bent's and made cookies. It was a great day!!! LOVE DEVIN

Hi Mommy,Daddy and Maia,
I bet Maia is crying again but that she'll stop soon. Although she is cute, I'll bet she is a lot of work. Hey, guess what! I'm doing an extra-credit activity to raise my Science grade because it is an 89!!!!In class on Mon. and Tues. I made Christmas tree ornaments. What an exciting day!!!

Hello !
This is French Marianne again, mum to Xu cousin Ninon. Just to say you are doing the best you can for Maia. In our group, when we were in Guangzhou in April 2005, one of the 8 little girls was much more shy and introverted. It took a little bit more than one week for Aurore to be at ease. And now, of course, Aurore is great. So, even if this is easy to say, courage ! Best regards
Marianne, Luc and Ninon
