Hi Debbie, Kirk and Olivia:

I too have checked your blog many times throughout the day on my recess breaks to see if there were pictures.
You look like such a happy family! What cute chubby cheeks, reminds me of when we met Kelly back in 2004.
Hope the trip goes well! I will keep checking for more updates from China.
Take care, Theresa, Kelly's mom from Group 175
PS After seeing Samara's and Olivia's pictures, I am wondering if the other babies are about the same size. They look happy and plump, which is great for about 1 year old or so.
The Guangdong group had much more petite little girls in comparison. So you never know what you can expect.
