They even had lunch together at the Cheesecake Factory.
One thing Merrilee really enjoyed was when Aunt Sharon took her to feel the cool water coming from one of the waterfall foutains at the Columbia Mall.
We started this blog to document our journey to our baby in China. We decided to adopt around Christmas of 2004. Our information went to China in January, 2006. On Tuesday, July 8, 2008, we finally got our referral and a picture of our little girl. Her Chinese name was Pu Fu Na and we have named her Merrilee. We returned to the U.S. with her on August 29, 2008, and we've decided to keep this blog going so we can share with you some of Merrilee's memorable moments.
