This blog chronicles the miracles and struggles of our daughters, Emily and Olivia. Emily was born 15 weeks early and had many complications, but she continues to amaze us! Olivia, born in China with heart complications, is also beating the odds. She joined her forever family (us!) when she was four years old and has been doing wonderfully! UPDATE: We started homeschooling August 2009 :)

Chinatown Summer Fair

After church on Sunday we headed downtown to Chinatown for their Summer Fair where we all had a good time. I'm not sure if Olivia noticed that there were more people there that looked like her, but one well meaning (Chinese?) young man must have thought Olivia was lost as he asked with concern if she was with us. He seemed to have intentions of finding her "lost" family and was embarrassed when he realized she was already with her family. I suppose we do cause some confusion at times!

Though not particularly Chinese, the girls loved the petting zoo. For more of a cultural experience, we watched some fancy girls on stage dancing with drums, drank out of a coconut and had smoothies with giant, chewy tapioca balls. We also did a little shopping in the street and I was happy to stumble upon shoes for the girls that are made of the same fabric as dresses we got in China.
