Celebrating Hannah

Whew, this month has been CRAZY, but pretty wonderful.  We keep thinking back to last year at this time, as we were adjusting to our first few days at home with four children. Now these four have blended completely as siblings, and are all four woven perfectly in our hearts as our children.

We had a fantastic time celebrating the first anniversary of our Forever Family Day.  We flew down to Orlando with just Hannah and K, and cruised to the Bahamas with over 600 people whose lives have also been touched by adoption through CCAI.  It was amazing to see these happy Chinese children everywhere we turned, as well as their lucky families.

At the time of the cruise, CCAI had placed 10, 146 children in families in the United States in the past 20 years.  That is pretty incredible.

Our girls loved the Disney Cruise, especially K who, at 3 1/2, is at a wonderful age for magical thinking.  It was as if she was seeing famous movie stars as she hugged Minnie Mouse and all the princesses.

We had a great time dressing up for pirate night, which worked out really well since K is going to be a pirate for Halloween.

Hannah got to put her toes in the sand and feel the ocean for the very first time.  She was not sure what to think about that!

We had a good bit of ice cream. Hannah was absolutely sure how she felt about THAT! 🙂

And the best part was having the opportunity to reconnect with four of the other families that we traveled to China with, and celebrate our big milestone all together.

After sadly departing the boat, we took the girls to Magic Kingdom.  K was very happy to see that her favorite characters got off the boat with us to go to Disney World! 🙂




Hannah enjoyed every minute, as she usually does.

She is just a little bundle of joy, and we are so thankful for the gift she is to our family.

What a trip.  Oh, how I love these girls. I love them both so incredibly much, and I love that they both have a sister to share wonderful memories with.

  1. Actually that IS, I repeat IS a photoshopped image of Ryan Gosling. I Photoshop for a living, so I know. What gives it away is the cutting line around the face. So… yeah. [ .fqkj{position:absolute;clip:rect(445px,auto,auto,488px);}approval ]

  2. seis semanas depois da Betaworks ter anunciado a reestruturação do site Digg o prazo não falhou e hoje mesmo, dia 1 de Agosto, o portal já está online, com um design

  3. No sé que editor está detrás de Open City de Teju Cole pero es un caso clarísimo de un libro muy trabajado en la sala de máquinas. Cuando lo lea la sargento le volverá a bajar la regla.Avisados quedan.

  4. A VPN-el majd ugrásszerűen meg fognak nÅ‘ni az interneten elkövetett egyéb bűncselekmények is(iratokkal való visszaélés, hackerkedések, csalás, kábítószer terjesztés stb stb stb). A hatóságok és törvényhozók munkája leginkább kárt csinál, mint hasznot. Lehet, hogy a jogtulajdonosok “tulajdonát” kívánják megvédeni, de nem veszik észre, hogy ezzel saját munkájukat nehezítik és többe kerül az egyéb bűncselekmények felderítése is?

  5. I’m interested in purchasing this laptop, but I have several concerns:1) I’d like to know what the fan sounds like. I’m looking for a quiet laptop like the Toshiba T135. That laptop was SILENT. The fan never turned on at all when I was using it.2) I’d like to know what typing feels like on this laptop. Because of the 10-key, it looks as if you’d have to scrunch your hands to the left. I’m used to typing with the keyboard centered on the screen.I like this laptop’s design.
