Chinese New Year

A little past the day, but wanted to post a few pictures of Mercy celebrating her first Chinese New Year with us.  We attended a luncheon hosted by Living Hope Adoption Agency.  They are the agency that did our home study as well as does our post-adoption follow-up visits and reports.  They had it in a banquet hall with a Chinese buffet and brought in some Chinese Dancers.

  1. Jane,

    How absolutely beautiful Mercy is! Her hair is so long and she looks like she is doing so well! Love her beautiful outfit too, so cute! Leah loved her dress, and enjoyed it, but because she is so active, a few hours later and she was done with it! We hope to grow our Chinese New Year in a huge way next year, when Leah is ready for it. With her mild autistic issues, she is unusually social but doesn't enjoy lots of major stimulation, though I usually cave with the noise way before she does! I always enjoy seeing how other families celebrate any Chinese Holidays. I plan to join our local Chinese chapter here in Pittsburgh and they have a lot of things going on throughout the year, once our girl adjusts more! So much to enjoy, celebrating these girls heritage! Oh, and Happy Valentines Day to you and your beautiful family!


  2. Awwww, so cute!!!! I can't wait to show this post to Brynna ;) Thanks for capturing it - I'm SUCH a bad blogger lately. Glad you guys were there. Loved having you and meeting your friends.
