Just a few pictures...

Internet is sketchy here.  I spent a good deal of time last night trying to get photos uploaded.  I only got four, but I guess that's better than nothing!  If I would have known that it wasn't going to work well, I would have chosen four pictures all with Tang Min, but as it is, there's just one... At least it's super cute!!  It  is of the three girls on the night we got Tang Min.  We had gone swimming and they had just had baths-- aren't they precious?!! 

This next photo is Graci with "China Grandma."  She is one of my favorite people in the world-- just as sweet as they come.  We LOVE her!

Here is one of the meals that Graci's aunties prepared for us.  Graci has let me know that if they ever come visit us in America, I need to step it up with my cooking!  She's very proud of the many dishes they served.  (: 

This is Jesi and Graci with Bei Bei, Graci's friend from China.  They used to spend a lot of time together when they were younger.  Bei Bei is ten and full of spunk and personality-- she reminds me so much of Graci when we first adopted her-- quite the character.  (;

And there you have it!  Tomorrow we will be traveling to Guangzhou and will hopefully have better luck with the internet! 

Cali is doing so amazingly well!  We're heading to breakfast right now, but I'll try to wrtie more later and maybe try for some more pics...



  1. So excited to see pictures that guy didn't really post any! The girls are so cute and now I am even more excited for our upcoming adoption.

  2. Is Bei Bei still in the orphanage? They are all such beautiful girls! Can't wait to follow along on the rest of your journey.

    1. No, Bei Bei is the daughter of one of China Mom's friends. So she has a family-- yay!

  3. So fun to see the 3 girls together. How cute are they?!

    And holy cow that is a LOT of food!

  7. Cali has some gorgeous hair! It always seems that the girls have short hair in all the pictures, but she doesn't. Congratulations to you guys! I've been following your blog for a long time but haven't posted. If you are ever in northern colorado I'd love to meet you :-)

  8. She is precious!! We are going to be so blessed to get to know her. I can't wait to see all the girl cousins playing together with her!

  11. I love the sisters picture...all that gorgeous black hair and blond hair together. It's striking and beautiful. Sisters are the best!

  12. If you had not told us that the first picture was taken on the night you got Cali, I would have thought it was days later! She looks so comfortable with her sisters! All 3 of them look like they have been together forever!

  13. What beautiful sisters! And what a special gift you all have in Graci's China family. We would love to have a connection with someone who'd loved our kids before we met them.

  14. Hey Green family. I've been reading your blog ever since I saw your awesome adoption video. I think your family is just beautiful. I also come from a large family of 19. You can see us at I can't wait for Cali to be home with you guys. She is so precious. I'm praying for you guys and looking forward to more pictures.


  15. You have incredibly beautiful girls. Good thing they have Jeremy and good brothers to watch over and protect them!!

  16. She is a beauty just like all of your little darlings...she'll fit right in!
