She is proud and confident.Because she has the family love her so much.


I'm so proud of Jazzie! More so of you, Sandra! And if there is ever some "down" moments for Jazzie, I believe that you would be there to re-assure her and be her strong pillar!

This story made me teary. Jazzie is such an amazing girl. I just love the picture of her. She looks so grown-up.

I'm so sorry to read about Matt's aunt. My thoughts are with all of you.

Do you know I always have some of your pumpkin bread in the freezer. It's my favorite with tea!

I agree we need Starbucks, lunch, and shopping! ;-)


Way to go Jazzie!! Sandra , you must be so proud for her raising up!!

I can't wait for Tahlias turn in a couple of years..

Sandra, I have to tell you that I'm so happy when you blogged about your favorite books. We have purchased many of the same books for Maddy and just the other day we thought of you and your girls as we read the book about families being different and not always looking the same. it was the first time since having Maddy that she actually said, "I born China?". :0) she is only 3 but it's a beginning and I hope to do for Maddy what you have and are doing for your girls. Thanks for being an inspiration


That's an amazing story. You should be proud.

PS. I'm with Angela... any advice for the rest of us on how you get there? How to explain it, talk about it, etc? I need to absorb every bit of BTDT experience I can... before Mia comes home. LOL!


That is super....what an incredible little girl to stand up there with confidence and explain away!! You must be so proud of her!! Way to go Jazzie:)


Awesome job Jazzie!! I know that you made your mommy very proud with this project.

I can only hope that when Erin is ready to tell her story, she takes a cue from Jazzie.


way to go Jaz and mommy and daddy!


Great Job, Jazzie! Last year, the kids in Elise's class just thought I was her grandma (nice, huh?) and didn't really give a thought to her being adopted. When I went in to talk about CNY, it clicked with lots of them. Elise reacted much the same way as Jazzie, so proud of being Chinese AND being adopted. :)


That is awesome! She is an amazing little girl.
