Welcome, Kate!

We're back from China with a new family member, Katherine Jieying ("Kate")! When we've settled in a little better, I'll post a few reflections about her orphanage. In the meantime, a few pictures.

The day we picked her up:


And in a Buddhist temple:



She's a sweet-tempered girl who likes congee (Chinese rice soup with chicken), playing in the bathtub (with or without water), and cruising around the house and yard holding onto fingers or furniture. The photos don't sufficiently capture her heart-melting smile when she's at full beam.
