In early1999, we made the decision to adopt a daughter from China. With much joy, we jumped into the amazing world of China adoption...Yahoogroups, International Family organizations, family websites and their inspiring stories...forever we will be grateful for the things we have learned and the good friends we have made.
We were thrilled when we received news of our referral on Thursday, April 13, 2000.
On April 14, 2000 we fell in love at first sight after receiving the FedEx packet with her picture.
On June 7, 2000, we met our second daughter, Elizabeth, in Maoming, Guangdong, PRC.

Also, there are lots of pictures of our China trip throughout our travel story.
"Family Day" in Guangzhou, China, June 9, 2000,
