We finally have our little girl home! She came home a week before Christmas, so we did the obligatory Christmas pictures.
People keep asking me how I feel, if I feel different somehow. Other than having issues balancing taking care of a kid and working from home, Seth and I don’t really feel different. I think we just waited and planned for this for so long, finally bringing her home was just natural – it was just right.
We are very happy to finally have our little girl home and we can’t wait to watch her – and our family – grow. We are still getting to know her, but she loves music and the color red!
If you want to know more adoption – especially expat adoption – feel free to ask questions in the comments section or email me. I’m more than happy to help other people grow their families through adoption.
I know that on the global stage, 2016 was terrible. But for us personally, 2016 was amazing. I had three books published, I started my own publishing company, I quit my “day job” and am able to work from home full-time, we traveled to Vietnam and Japan, and we topped it off by bringing our first baby home! 2017 will have a lot to live up to! I can’t wait to see what the future brings.
Happy New Year!

“An absolutely amazing read from start to finish!”
I’ve been wanting to open an online shop here on the blog for a while, but I imagined it would be a really difficult thing. Apparently, with WordPress, it’s very easy! Check it my new shop here. Just click on “Crazy Products” at the top of the page, select your items, then click on “checkout” under “Crazy Products” and complete the checkout process. All payments are processed through Paypal, but once you set up a Paypal account you can pay with a credit card or directly through your bank.
The Perfect Christmas Present
My awesome in-laws just finished mailing out all of the rewards from my Crazy Dumplings Kickstarter, and we had a few items leftover. So I made 10 gift sets that include 1 paperback book, 1 dumplinger, and 1 paper-cutting bookmark. For only $21.95, you get all three items! The books are retailing for $20.95 on Amazon, so by buying them directly from me in this package, you are almost getting the dumplinger and bookmark for free. It is such a great deal!
The gift set is only available for shipping in the 48 continental United States. Sorry, but I’m still figuring out how to work the shipping options and I don’t know if any international packages would arrive in time for Christmas.
You can also purchase the eBook version of Crazy Dumplings in a variety of formats.
I want to thank everyone who has helped me get my book published. I am very proud of it and so happy it is now getting into people’s hands! Happy Holidays, everyone, and may your dumplings ever be crazy!
