Happy New Year! Welcome to the Chinese Year of the Rabbit.
Just before we adopted Lily our social worker pointed out that we would now be a Chinese-American family. I hadn’t thought of it that way before, but of course she was absolutely right. Among the many wonderful blessings this brings is the fact that we get to wholly embrace the two-week New Year celebration.
In honor of the New Year, here are a few photos from our trip to China. What adventures this little girl has brought us.
At the Summer Palace.
The kids posed for dozens of photos with people who had never seen Westerners in person before.
The Great Wall at Badaling.
And then there were four.
Best wishes from our family to yours for the happiest of new years.
