Such amazing friends. Thank you all so much!
- Sincerest THANKS to everyone who commented or emailed me privately to tell me how much they've enjoyed and will miss our blog. Your comments have touched me very deeply. I wish I could respond to everyone personally but I'm afraid I would only have time to type a few words and that wouldn't do justice to how I feel about the love and support and friendship you've shown me over the months (and, in some cases, years). Some of the nicest families I've ever known are in the China adoption community and there are many of you that I'd love to meet someday so please email me if you're ever planning to be in the San Jose area. It would be my pleasure to get to finally meet you face to face and watch our kids play together. If you survive my home cooking and my overly affectionate cat, I'll give you the password to our private blog. You're all wonderful!
- Updates -- I'll post tiny updates on this blog just to "tickle" the RSS feed so people will know that there's something new on the private blog. So don't cancel your subscription if you want those updates.
- Family Foto Fun Friday (FFFF) will be taken over by Lissa (from Loving Lydia). I've known Lissa for two years and I have no doubt that she'll do a wonderful job with it! If you've never seen her blog, I promise you'll fall in love with Lydia. She's one of the most animated little cutie pies I've ever seen! If my kids let me, I'll try to participate in her FFFF challenges from time to time too.
- China 2008, anyone? We'll be in Beijing for the WWW conference next year so we decided to spend an extra week or two touring China. We don't have any definite plans for what we'd do or where we'd go but thought it would be fun to get a bunch of families together for this. We could arrange something through Lotus Tours. If you're interested, post a comment here or email me and we'll put our heads together and figure out how to make this really fun. The only date that is solid is that we'll arrive in Beijing April 20, 2008.
