Zoo in China

We went to the zoo while we were in China and the kids had a lot of fun.
My little joey's

Can't beat the cute pandas!

The kids favorite part was probably feeding the giraffes!

Especially the baby giraffe!  Adorable

But watch out for the tongue!  Meilin saw it coming and dropped her leaf!


I will try to keep posting pics to highlight some of the good times in China!


  1. You don't know me, but I've been following your adoption of MeiLin for the past month or so. I had the opportunity to volunteer at New Day this past October for 2 weeks. I got to be Meilin's partner when they visited the animal farm, corn pit and farm in October. I love seeing her in your family. I smiled when I saw her dropping the leaf while trying to feed the giraffes - she did the same thing while feeding the animals the day I spent with her too. My favorite picture you posted was on your Gotcha Day as she embraced you and cried . . . she seemed to realize the beauty and importance of that day. She is such a beautiful expressive girl and reminds me some of my 6 year old daughter who is also adopted from China. May God bless your family as you all transition and get used to being together as a forever family. ~Gina Norr

  2. What a wonderful chance to communicate with Gina Norr, who got to know Meilin while at New Day. Sometimes "it is a small world" out there. ----- Barb, I really enjoyed all the pictures you posted and the video. I truly love seeing Meilin with her 'forever family' and know she is blending in and making positive adjustments. ~~~ May God continue to bless you and your husband for ALL that you have taken upon and the little ones you have given a family. ~ I'm blessed to have "connected" with you. :)
