Feelings, thoughts and other tidbits along the way to adopting our daughter from China.

Goodbye and Thank you!

This is the final post on "Bringing Kennedy Home". Two hundred and seventy posts later, it's time to put the story of our journey to Kennedy to rest. We've done it. We've travelled around the globe to bring our beautiful daughter home. It's time now for her life to become private. Thank you all so much for your support over the past 2 years. It has truly been the journey of a lifetime...............

All our love,
Marvin, Carolyn and Kennedy Joy Caijiao

    Wow...this is it! It feels like you are breaking up with me, Just kidding! I did gasp though when I read that it was the final post. It has been great getting daily updates but I am sure I will survive with email updates and visits. It has been incredible to watch! Have a great Easter!
    Love Rebecca

    Dear Clows, I have enjoyed every minute I have spent on your blog. Thank you sooo much for sharing your amazing journey with us. I guess I can cancel my therapy session for my addiction to it, or maybe I will keep it for when I go into withdrawl!!!You will have to come visit at the school and you know you are more than welcome into our home as well. Love, Monette xo

    Wow - I can't believe it's done. I will truly miss checking in on your blog and seeing what Kennedy is up to. It's been great getting to know and travelling this journey right along with you - literally. Meeting you in person at the jade factory in China was amazing and I'll always remember you guys. Thank you for sharing this amazing part of your lives with us. We wish you all the best.

    You guys have been so lucky to have had this communication tool, and so great about sharing your lives with all of us. There were no such things as "blogs" when adopted Chloƫ, so our journey was a much more private one. This has been so beautiful getting to watch every step, especially all the pictures and videos of Kennedy.

    Thank you so much for sharing all of this with us. I'll really miss checking out your blog my usual three times a day.
    Love,

    I truly feel honored to have been able to follow your journey to beautiful Kennedy. I will be first to admit it has become an addiction so might have to start a support group lol. You and Kennedy have been very blessed... enjoy your lives together and hope to see the lil monkey at a few hockey games over the years. Tracy M

    Thank you so much for letting us be part of your journey!!! I feel as though I know you (even though we've never met!) and will miss checking in on little Kennedy!!! I know how you feel though as this is something I've been considering as well. Please include us in some emails to keep us up to date! We may be heading to PEI this summer for a family vacation...perhaps we could meet??? Take care!

    Thank you for sharing your story. My husband and I (in Charlottetown) may embark on the same journey some day and its a wealth of knowledge to read blogs like yours. I'm glad that Kennedy is home with her mom and dad.
    Take Care.
