Why China? Because that was where I daughter was waiting for us while we finished all the paper work in the United States, in order to bring her home.

Thanks sweetie...You've always known how to calm my nerves. And I certainly can't argue with good ole Albert.
Scott:Very well put! I am right there with you in the timeline and you have voiced some of my concerns. Sometimes the groups can get you a little crazy.Karen:You have a great guy there!Lori
Great blog :) Our family is LID 4/27 and we are looking forward to meeting you in China!!Bridget BrewerFort Riley, KSan April Panda sister!!
Scott,Isn't it great when you can balance each other out in a relationship. Isn't it great that will flow into your relationship as parents. That is why Cady is a lucky girl!Monica- mei dreams(mk on msn)
I think the very best event here is that a child will be given for free the vast opportunities that she would never have seen in China. Children are a journey and everyday is different, as they change and personalities grown for better or worse the change is amazing to witness. Remember to stop and teach when they are watching you do something even mundane as they have never cut up an Apple or helped with seemingly meaningless task as dinner or making brownies. Soon you will find the best helper ever and the time spent is priceless. I remember a story from a Mom whose dishwasher was broken and each day a different child had to help her do the dishes and she got to talk to them one on one about their day. To this day the dishwasher is still broken, precious time spent together.
I think the two of you will be great parents..
Scott, it's wonderful to finally hear from you! Karen is amazing so I shouldn't be surprised that she snagged an equally amazing man.I can't wait to see you two become parents to Cady!Donna
Karen bugged me and bugged me to read this blog with Scotts' newest entry and of course I forgot and of course once again it was (sob!) heartwarming! Who knew that behind that laid back exterior lurked-----a poet! Scott that was beeeyootiful! Karen you and Cady are so lucky to have such a Dad and husband. Hold tight Karen your day is coming! Love cherie
My husband and I wholeheartedly agree. You meet the child where they are at and go from there. We did that with the boys and we will do that with our Chinese daughter.Thinking of you during the long wait and beyond.LisaMarie
