What a cool idea. Those questions were great to hear the answers to. My friend's family has adopted 2 girls from China, so I thought it was cool that I understood the Chinese phrases you posted!

That was interesting - especially since you had 3 adoptions and 2 countries!

I love this tag. I might be doing this in the future. Fun answers. Nice seeing in the parade Saturday. We had great weather for it!
