Thankyou so much for the video, what a wonderful thing, a beautiful little girl with a great big smile!! It absolutely made my heart sing to see her soooo happy in most all the pictures. I also noticed she wasn't hanging on to Pooh all the time. I feel her Mommy and Daddy are doing a terrific job with this frightening transition.

How fortunate for you Krysta, to have Jason there for the blood stick. As a Mother, I found that was one of the harder things I had to do. Of course it took 4 people to hold my sweet little one down. ;) I have found that the memories come flooding back to me as I watch you interact with Jia, and what warm fuzzy feelings that gives me.

I'm not there to see how the other kids are dressed, but I think she is probably one of the best dressed two year-olds in China.

Keep up the great job you are doing...just a few more days until you are back into familiar territory.

Krysta, Jason and Jia, What an absolutely blessed treat to be able to follow the three of you in this miraculous journey! Hurray for technology. To see the grins and love in Jia's eyes for her Mommy and Daddy is so very precious. We will continue to hold you in our hearts and prayers and rejoice in the Lord with you! How perfect is His timing, His plans! Much love, Auntie Susi

Krysta, Jason & Jia...Congrats from your neighbors...The Beck's....

Got a call from Sandy to watch your blog. (Thank you Grandma!!)What an awesome treat for all of us at home to share this with you. I am sure I speak for others when I say that you both are fabulous writers and express your emotions beautifully. It is the next best thing to being there for your loved ones who didn't get the opportunity to join you. I can hardly wait to check in daily on your progress.

Jia is a Beautiful China Doll, just as her Grandma described her. Her smile is full of hope and promise, her eyes full of wonder and love. You two may feel like she will have trouble with this huge change in her life, but just looking at the pictures and writings you have posted there is a huge change from day one to now. What an awesome gift.

You two are doing a wonderful job and I agree with one of the comments I read about you comforting Jia in her mourning, it makes sense that it can only make your bond with her stonger as she completely relies on you to make her heart stop hurting. What an awesome gift she has been given, the two of you!!

Anyway, just wanted to let you know we are all thinking of you and wishing you all the best. Can't wait to meet your beautiful daughter and see her running around your yard.

Take care and be safe, The Beck's
