Chinese New Year Blog Hop Day 2

Ni hao and welcome to the Chinese New Year Blog Hop! This hop is in honor of Guan, the little boy our family is adopting from Taiwan. If you'd like to read more about his incredible story, you can go to To celebrate Guan's culture, we want to share some Chinese-inspired projects with you!

I am so excited for you to see everyone's amazingly creative projects!

For my project, I am sharing our adoption announcement.
