The Tianqing Dao Temple Visit and Shopping

This is one of my favorite treasures from China. Artists create these images on stone from your pictures by tapping tiny little dots on the stone with a special tool. The one we got of Gracie back in 2005 is still very precious to me.
This one is of Garrett with his foster mother, Mrs. Chung. Isn't it beautiful? I know he will treasure this gift forever.

These are the children in Van's travel group. Garrett is hugging Cole so sweetly here. Many new families are just beginning their lives together. What beautiful children!!!

It is almost Chinese New Year, and the year of the Ox. The red lanterns hang everywhere for decoration.

Here are some great pictures of the tavel group's trip to the temple. Garrett is such a happy baby. It makes me smile every time I see pictures of him with Van. He seems to be handling the huge changes in his life very well.
