Adoption stories

We adopted our children before I started this blog (although I did blog then too – see the bottom of this page for links), so this particular blog doesn’t contain our full adoption stories. However, you can read summaries of our adoption stories in the following posts:

Hometown trips

We think it’s important for our children to feel comfortable, and a sense of belonging, in the country of their birth. For that reason, we are committed to returning every two or three years to explore China and / or visit their hometowns. Click below to see the children’s home town visits so far.

(You can read about our other trips to China on the “Travel” page.)

When we adopted our children, we gained family we never dreamed of having: our China travel-mates. Our many families have remained close since those fated trips, and we enjoy seeing them whenever we can.  The following posts document our reunions:

I first began blogging right before we traveled to China to adopt Claire, as a way to keep distant family and friends updated with our adoption and our journey with our sweet baby. I ended up loving the process, and have since made the kids’ blogs into memory books.
