Please note: the most recent posts are listed first. For a full sense of our adoption travel experience, go to the bottom of the page and work your way upwards.

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.

Back home... almost.

I'm now blogging from the Hong Kong International Airport. We landed here at 3 pm local time and are awaiting our 10 pm departure flight back to SFO. It's an amazing airport... but the long travel is sure to be as tough as it has been for the past 5 hours. Nevertheless, a sense of humor is not lost on me. Check out this photo of Matthew who fell asleep on the last few minutes of our flight here from Guangzhou:

And since our boarding time (9:15pm) is more than 2 hours past Emmaline's bedtime, we've put her to bed on a couch in the large Hong Kong airport lounge, creatively creating a tent for her using our multi-purpose Maya Wrap baby sling (that's her little foot sticking out on the right):

So if you happen to have a free moment and it's not yet 6 pm PST on Wednesday, please say a prayer for us and our traveling companions, the Jang family (who are bringing back their baby girl Michaela). It's going to be a long flight.
