My niece joined the family on July 12th, 2010. This special young lady's mother is my younger sister, which in classic Chinese culture makes me her Jiu Jiu (舅舅) -- thus the title of this blog. Here I intend to semi-regularly post reflections, thoughts, stories, and assorted whathaveyous pertaining to our trip to China, adoption in general, and (mostly) watching my niece grow up. Since the web is a very public place, I will attempt to maintain my family's privacy while telling the story... but I invite you to follow the blog and come along for the adventure!

A Change of Seasons

Okay, maybe this is cheating... but I'm still composing a couple of new posts so here's a little something to help pass the time. (I'm not trying to drag things out -- it's just really hard to write cogent, grammatically correct, worth-the-time-to-read text when you're this deep into unplanned sleep deprivation!)

When I used some of my sick days a couple of weeks back (you'll read more about it in a future post, I'll just say it was quite likely compliments of the Pipsqueak), as I began to feel better I was encouraged to get outside into the fresh air & sunshine... and I took along my camera "just in case" on my first slow, just-for-the-sake-of-walking stroll through my neighborhood in over a year.

I'm certainly no pro, but presented here for your enjoyment are a few of the nicer snapshots from my walk...

Okay, hopefully y'all liked those... but right now I am waaay overdue for a few hours of sleep so I'm heading to bed. Wan an!
