Heading Home!

Hello All,

So sorry! I have been horible about keeping up with the pics!! We will send some today. We leave here in a few hours. How we cant wait to go home, we miss our fruits, veggies, ice, but most of all our friends and family. We get into Sky Harbor at 750pm Friday December 18th, we look forward to seeing our friends and family there. All and all this was an amazing adventure for us. We made some wonderful new friends, we got to see some very beautiful sights, and most of all we got the most amazing Daughter, Sister, Niece, and God Daughter a family could ever ask for. Now if we could just get her to be ok alone with BABA...they get along very well otherwise. Staying at the White Swan was a wonderful experience and would do it all over again. We think she is on target in most aspects, but emotionaly she is severly delayed, much like a 1.5 yr old child. We know in time she will be ok emotionaly with all of her family and friends suport.

Love, K,S,K

Update from Sindy

Hello All,

We've had some requests for some more pics. For your viewing pleasure I've added about 38 new pics of our precious little Katie HERE, thanks for all the messages and emails. It means alot to us. We are very much looking forward to moving on to Guangzhou and the White Swan. Cindy, I found a few different types of Skittles for Jake. Shannon, thanks for the update on the house. I will email you later with a list of stuff we will need. Tell Joe thanks for looking after the house. The story reminds me alot of the Kings trampoline. I cant believe the winds. Congrats on the spelling bee champs Kirsten & Emily. we will have some challenges ahead of us. We figure Katie is a year behind, but it's hard to judge with the language barrier. She is such a little sweetie. Bubby, thanks for keeping Allie, I think it's funny she wants her hair like Katie.

We miss you all and cant wait too see you next week! We will write more later.

Love,

Kelly, Sindy, and Katie

P.S. SELINA WHERE'S MY EMAIL BACK...HEHE!!!!

Katie Day!

(another update posted by Diana see their China Journal here)
It was an awesome day. We got the Civil Office Building, and we were the third family to get their child. The previous two were crying like mad, they were 3.5yrs. Katie came in with her caretaker and was very quiet, she had her backpack on, and lots of clothes on. She right way bonded with Baba, it was at the hotel she started to like Mama. It was so surreal, it took us back to meeting Allie for the first time. We were lucky enough to meet with both directors and they were both very nice. We will be going to Yiwu ( EEWUH) tomorrow. We get to get a tour at her orphanage, I was very surprised by that. But very happy to go. We will also get her passport tomorrow. She is very protective of her stuff. She's waking up as I type. Enjoy the pics!!

Love,Kelly, Sindy, And Katie

We love you Allison...Katie did have a little meltdown at the Civil Affairs Office :-)

December 5, 2009

We are very excited to be here in China again. This province is very beautiful they specialize in agriculture in Hangzhou, we saw many acres of Bonsai plants and trees. Very different from Changsha. Our hotel the Lakeview is on the lake. Last night we ventured out a bit and found a huge Walmart like store we liked. We got two bags of food and treats for a total of 10.00non and Sharaleen and Shannon I even found some cute stickers. It's morning time here and we get to go the the buffet. Sounds yummy. We have really just snacked the last few days. I will type more tonight, We do not have access to Blogger or Facebook here.

Love,

Kelly and Sindy

On Our Way To Hangzhou!!!

We've spent the day in Seoul Korea at the airport. We managed to find a Starbucks. It's amazing how beautiful and clean this airport is. It puts our US airports to shame. Asiana Airlines was fantastic for flying coach the service was amazing. Kelly and I are really missing you Allison and we love you to pieces. We will try our best to get the photos posted for you all on Monday. Thanks for the comments, we are loving to read them. I will post more from China. I cant believe in just a few days we will have our little girl and Allie's Sister.
Much Love, Kelly and Sindy....
P.S. THANKS TO EVERYONE IN OUR LIFES FOR ALL THE LOVE AND SUPPORT TO GET WHERE WERE AT TODAY!!!
