Chinese New Year

Once a year we go down to Joplin to celebrate Chinese New Year with other families who have adopted children from Taiwan.  We love it!!  We had a wonderful time!
 they're my favorite

 Mia would NOT smile when her brother and sister weren't sitting with her.

His Hands Blessings

You may remember JaiLi.  She was at His Hands in Taiwan the same time Mia was.

 August 2010 at His Hands in Taiwan

We met her when we were there to get Mia in August 2010.  In December 2010, JaiLi's parents got to go get her!  We met up with them when they were still on their way home.

December 23, 2010

Today we got to meet up with them again!  It was so much fun to see the girls together again!
They've both gotten so big!!
