Welcome to No Place Like Home.

This blog is a place for information, answers and support for families who are considering international adoption, waiting or are home with their children. My name is Kimberley and I am the coordinator of this site. This blog is truly a network of families who are willing to support others along their journey to their child. The blogs listed on my sidebar are arranged by country and these families have volunteered to act as a resource to anyone who needs one. These are amazing people who are dedicated to helping families who are on the journey to their children in another country. If you are looking for someone to talk with or if you have a blog and would like to be available to help others, please feel free to e-mail me at timnkim@gmail.com.

Welcome Annalise!...A Single Mother's China Adoption Story

Paulette is currently in China to bring home her beautiful daughter Annalise. Her travel blog is 'together forever'.
The post below is taken directly from her blog:
Annalise is doing better but it was not an easy day for either of us I am exhausted and she is finally asleep. She is very attached to her nanny and has never been out of the SWC. It was hard for her to let go and come to me. The grieving process has already begun so I can only hope she will come around soon. Back at the hotel she was beginning to feel a bit better and began to play with a few toys. Thank goodness for the toy baby bottle it is her favorite. I will fill you in more when I’ve has some rest but enjoy the picture she is just beautiful and quite a smart little girl.

Thanks Kimberley for posting this as I was a bit too busy to see you had made this post. I would also love to share our visit to the orphanage with your readers if you would like. I think it is very important to the adoption process and brouht us full circle. This will be a day in Annalise's life she will alway remember because they let us document it with pictures.
