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 :)

New blog

The other day when I couldn't access our blog, I remembered that I could email a post blindly. Well, apparently that posted to our old, old blog. So, if you got an update, please check out our new blog:
We had our Gotcha Day yesterday : )

We made it to Shanghai!

Our VPN is not cooperating so we can not access Facebook or our blog, but I vaguely remembered that I could email a post to update the blog. This is a blind attempt to update send an update to say that we arrived safely in our first of four cities. Watching the news, I'm thankful to say that our plane did not disappear. We are safe and sound in Shanghai : ). After resting up here a few days, we'll fly on Sunday to Ben & Drew's city, Tianjin, and meet our new sons/brothers on Monday!!

Please pray for our health and sleep/jet lag. I came down with a very bad sore throat, fever, body aches, chills, last Saturday. I tested negative for strep and my fever was gone before we flew, but I still have a very raw sore throat and now a runny nose and cough added to the mix. Olivia is slowly recovering from her cough (she had it first) and now Andy is trying to fight it off. So, 3/6 of us are impacted by this bug and I'd really like that number to decrease, not increase! Thanks!


Messenger and email still work so could someone let me know if this update posted? Blog posts are set to also automatically post to FB, but right now I can't access either to see if this worked.
