From Drew's mom- "These are the 1st "brother" photos with the boys. Drew has been home with us for two years on December 2nd. His "gotcha day" was Dec. 2, 2008. It has been a wonderful 2 years and Drew has just blossomed. He loves the Christmas tree and points the star out every time he sees it by saying, "my star". He sat on Santa's lap without being scared but was very serious when he asked him to bring him a present. He gets so excited to see Christmas lights. He will just start yelling in the car, "look, look, Christmas lights!" It should be an exciting Christmas indeed!"

Tessa and Parents (Taiwan- August 2009) Taiwan is an amazing country. Before we traveled and studied Taiwan history and culture, I always assumed it was a country of manufacturing plants and congestion. While this may be true in parts of the island it is definitely not true for much of it. The entire east side is one lush tropical mountain range. The scenery was stunning. And the people of Taiwan...they were incredibly accommodating and hospitable.
