Till we meet again, China!

We arrived home at 9pm on Saturday night, July 28. We traveled for a total of 33 hours, and Abi Mei only cried/screamed for 1.5 hours of that. :) Pretty amazing!! We were greeted by several friends and we were so blessed by each one of them!! What an incredible homecoming.

Leaving China was bittersweet. We cherish our Chinese daughter, and we were sad to leave her birth country. We are looking forward to going back as a family. Until then, we will take care of the precious jewel China gave to us by the hands of God.

Here are a few pictures from our last day in China.

Abi is helping us pack. Here way of helping was to actually take out of the bags what we already put in them. :)

Ready for one last swim at the pool!

The hotel had amazing garden arrangements both inside and outside of the hotel. We wanted to have a photo shoot of Abi in one of her traditional Chinese dresses.

This is what Abi thought of the photo shoot!

But she kindly gave us a few pics. :)

Classic Abi look when she does not want to do something!

She is so beautiful!

Love seeing her up on her tippy-toes.

Finished off with a picture with Baba.


  1. I love the pictures of the cute girl!!!

  2. So great! I love the one where she is looking at the fish. :) Welcome home!

  3. That photo of you & her in front of the flower arrangements is one of the best photos! I love your beautiful, happy faces together! And, the one of her looking up with that flower behind her ear, melts my heart! ♥ ♥ ♥

  4. It has been such a joy to follow your journey, Robinson family. I get misty reading some of your blog posts, seeing how happy she makes you. Such a precious blessing Abi Mei is, and will always be to you, too. (And those pictures of her in traditional Chinese dress are just beyond cute!)
