Life is still way the heck more complicated than it really needs to be (IMHO) but I'm getting close to having time to put some real posts up here again soon.
In the meantime, does anyone remember the old saying, "Like flies to honey..."? Well, I think we've found a replacement: "Like kids to Kindle...." (photo taken by a family friend after Chinese school on a recent Saturday).
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!
