Welcome to Emmaline Anne Ding's adoption website. This blog details our family's adoption of this beautiful little girl from China in 2005. While the focus of the blog is to record our trip to China, you can also find more about her adoption by clicking on the links to the right.

Tomorrow's "Gotcha Day!"

For those of you keeping track, or more for those who aren't, tomorrow (Oct 31) is gotcha day! We've already gotten tickets for the 8:25am express train tomorrow from HK to Guangzhou. Then after contacting our in-country travel guide we go meet and pick up Emmaline sometime later that day! This has traditionally been called "Gotcha Day" for obvious reasons.

The remaining week and a half of our trip will be spent taking care of both Chinese and U.S. government paperwork. Of course, what with jet lag and caring for our two current kids, we haven't even given much though to Emmaline, even though it's "why we're here!" I guess our hands will be "even more full" with one more in the quiver. =-)
