In celebration of 1 year as a family of 3, we would like to do a raffle for a CD of Chinese lullabies sung by the Beijing Angelic Choir. This music has soothed Joanna Mei to sleep each night and we'd like to pass on this beautiful music to a lucky winner. Just go over to "The Other Blog - Content: Questionable" and leave a comment on the raffle item indicating that you'd like to win. Joanna Mei will draw a winner on July 14, our Forever Family Day.

"Daddy! Rabbit! Mommy! Rabbit!"
Joanna Mei repeated it several times as we ate our
breakfast this morning and held up the paper on which she was drawing.
We were quite impressed. There on the paper were 3 rabbits which
were easily identifiable in a Salvatore Dali sort of way.
Be added whiskers and a missing ear or two as well as the
dinosaur looking character in the lower right.
Not bad for a 31 month year old kid.
OK - I'll quit tootin' my horn.

On July 24, 2009, Warner Brothers Pictures and Dark Castle Entertainment plans to release the movie, “Orphan” nationwide. This horror movie is a fictional story of a couple who loses their unborn child and decides to adopt a 9-year-old girl, Esther, from a local orphanage. The tagline for the movie is, “There is something wrong with Esther”. Another line from the movie states, “It must be hard to love an adopted child as much as your own".The adoption community adamantly opposes the themes in this movie which suggest that orphans are 'problem children' who will bring nothing but destruction and violence to a family. This deception also brings unnecessary fear to families considering adoption.This theme is extremely offensive and hurtful to the hundreds of thousands of families who have adopted. Unlike the message that this film portrays, these families can attest to the great blessings of adoption, and their unmeasurable love for their children. Sign the petition here .........
