John here -- we got unstuck and made it to Shanghai (I'd never seen a credit card actually melt before).  We now have Mimi, who is a joy!  More to come (and pictures) soon. 


  1. Oh, I am so happy for you all! To think that Mimi is with her new family and you are all there for her is just amazing. Much much love.

  2. Just saw your snapfish photos. Thank you so much for sharing this. Wow, what an amazing day that must have been. I love that Mim has the same shirt as Rosie, and I love the kids' pages and links as well. Hugs to all. And tell Andrew that Josh is equally obsessed with Minecraft. xo

  3. where, where are the photos??? tears of joy!!!!

    1. I found them! I went through the gotcha moment along with you and what a tear jerker! Tula watched with me and is counting the days till she meets Mimi.

  4. This is amazing - Mimi looks soooo happy!!! If I didn't know better, I'd think she's been in your family for years. We're so thrilled for you guys - keep the pictures coming!! Lots of love - Lisa & Kev

  5. Hurray for family day. Love to you all!,

  6. She is beautiful!! And you all looks so happy. The balloons were a genius idea! Thank you for letting us share your amazing day!!
    Love to you all!

  7. HOOORRAAAAYYY!! Congratulations to all! Xoxoxo

    Amy, Rick and Emily

  8. We've been watching for an update and getting worried since we hadn't had one since Tokyo - you know me - what a wonderful surprise when all of a sudden we had Mimi! It looks like big brothers and sister have won her over completely.I cried through most of the photos so will have to start all over. You all look so great. Now, Rosie, give Mimi a big hug from Grandma and Grandpa in Denver and tell her we can't wait to see her. We love you all.
    Love Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, and Patch (ok, I made that one up)
