I've been away – and it is fun to get back and see Vivi smiling 🙂 I loved it when we arrived in Guangzhou – and we have only adopted once from China! It just sorta feels comfortable! Have a great time there and thanks again for sharing your journey!

I've been following your journey to Vivi, never posting a comment because you already have so many :). But, I can't resist today. That video is just adorable. Vivi is just beautiful and so sweet. You're a very blessed mommy.

Good morning Stef and family! I'm sorry I missed your post yesterday – the day was spent wiring money and nailing down last minute changes for our trip that starts next Wednesday! You guys look like you are doing WONDERFULLY – we're praying for as much luck! Let us know how the Victory is – and maybe leave a note in your room – we'll be there in about 12 days!
hugs – great joy for you guys –
aus and co.

She's not cleaning up – she's PACKING TO COME HOME!!!! I love how she waited until the very end to come "see" herself on the video camera 🙂 Smart girl!
January 16, 2010 at 2:58 PM
OH my goodness, isn't she the busy bee? What a sweet video! That clomp, clomp, clomp of her shoes!!!!! Oh so sweet! Thanks for sharing!
January 16, 2010 at 3:04 PM
Sooo sweet! I agree with everyone else, she's packing her bags to head to her forever home!! Just precious!

So I'm sitting here, watching the video with Vivi at the table behind me and she hears your voice saying "Vivi" and says, "who's calling my name?" I had to laugh! Then she had to watch the video 🙂
Looks like Vivi is doing well and keeping busy!

How precious, she's going to be such a help around the house. 🙂
January 16, 2010 at 4:33 PM
Is she the CUTEST, busiest little bee, ever?!?! Soooo sweet & so determined to pack those cups!! lol!
Love keeping up to date with you all!
January 16, 2010 at 7:58 PM
She is adorable and I'm so happy for you all. I always wanted to adopt but now I'm getting on a bit (50 next month, yikes!) and can't imagine I'd be allowed… I get the feeling my daughter might just do it for me when she's a bit older 😉
January 16, 2010 at 10:19 PM
Jen, you WOULD be allowed! The special needs program allows parents to be up to 55 🙂If it's on your heart to adopt, go for it!!
January 17, 2010 at 1:18 AM
Oh my gracious what a *BEAUTIFUL* baby girl! SWOON!
You are so lucky (although, I don't believe luck has anything to do with it. Jesus has his hands ALL OVER your family!!)! Your children simply could not be more beautiful and smart, and just doggone charming!
The shared list comes out on Monday! I am crossing my fingers and toes that we are as "lucky" (BLESSED!) as you guys! It's funny, I could not care less about the things of this world, I just want orphans! Is it really coveting, if you are coveting for orphans? LOL!
January 17, 2010 at 2:46 AM
Ok,that was just about the cutest thing I have ever seen. Oh. My. Goodness.
January 17, 2010 at 3:14 AM
Look at HER…..oh, what a helper she's gonna be 'round the ol' homestead!
LOVED watching her work so purposefully and so diligently.
what a love!
January 17, 2010 at 5:55 AM
She really is something else, so determined and focused and just plain yummy. I've been watching your journey all the way through and it sure makes me want to do it all again. I am SO happy for your family–can't wait to see her with all the others. Blessings, Monica

Don't want to leave any of those cups behind! So. Dang. Cute.
January 18, 2010 at 3:43 AM
