  • … (If I weren’t ferklempt right now, I could say something)

  • Indeed we are ! Thinking of Lis,that is,and her daughter Jamie.
    OMG !

  • So excited, I cannot speak. Fab, fab, fab ! or indeed, OMG !!

  • ….. babies are absolutely the BEST!…..so huggable….and snuggable….

  • OMG, I got a shiver just now… and now you can email from China!?!?! OMG, when I went there was no email. I was furiously handwriting notes and faxing them from the hotel business center to my brother-in-law’s office, from whence he would call my sister and she would call the rest of the familly. Such a blur, and all with that sweet warm baby-lump I was afraid to put down, even for a minute. Here’s to Lis and Jamie!

  • I can vividly remember hearing the laughter of the adopted Chinese baby swimming in the pool at the White Swan Hotel in Guangzhou with her mommy. I feel so touched that Liz is going to bring love and joy to a little one so in need. And you and Diana too, Brava!

  • Such stories, Susan and Siow Chin. I have been thinking about Lis all day, wondering exactly what she is doing. It’s hard to imagine what all this must be like. Just cannot wait to hear her story.

  • I’ve been offline all weekend, but yours is the first blog I’ve visited, for precisely this update. Thank you! So you think they are actually together now, mother and daughter? Wow. Fond memories indeed. And, BTW, we went to the Hunan embroidery museum/factory/shop too!

  • It’s so nice to be able to receive news of Lis’ wonderful adventure- thank you! What a joyful trip… OMG!

  • OMG, MDK is going to need a new name to accomodate this added dimension eastward.
    Thank you for transmitting the news we are all dying for.

    if there is any time ever in beijing, remember to trot down to the “Qian Men Da Jie” — there is a yarn store there, diagonal opposit to the *Quan ju de* Beijing Duck Restaurant. You will find some local (wool) yarn there!

  • Emy—I wish I had known that in 2002! I was too shy to ask our guides, or ask our group of 14 families to divert for a quick yarn-shop stop! xoxoxo Kay
