Hi! We were married on June 27th, 1998. We live in Boulder, Colorado, which is actually a pretty cool town. We like it. We’re right up against the remarkably beautiful flatirons with all sorts of hiking, biking and expensive boutique shopping!

Nathan Diana grew up in Pueblo Colorado, while Nathan grew up mostly in Northglenn, Colorado (although he was born in Ann Arbor Michigan, and still thinks it’s awful brown out here). Anyway, we met in college at CSU, etc., etc., but that’s not why you’re here, is it? I mean, if you are, I could go on and on about how hard it is to keep a green lawn in Colorado these last five-odd summers.

If you’re one of my neighbors, I want you to know we are totally going to do something about all of those weeds and brown spots. Seriously. I’m all over that.

In the fullness of time, we decided we wanted to have a family, and realized the dogs were never going to grow up and go to college, much less take out the trash and mow the lawn. As for the cats… I mean, come on. Cats really have it pretty sweet, don’t you think? They cry, you feed them, they cry, you let them out. Who exactly is the pet and who is the master here? They do take care of mice, if you consider brutally torturing a small animal until it dies of fright “taking care” of it.

Anyhoo, various twists and turns and a deep love of Chinese culture led us to consider adoption from China.

We filled out paperwork, lots of it. We waited. We waited some more. We filled out some more paperwork, because the original paperwork expired. Social workers came to our house and poked around our personal information and housekeeping skills.
We experienced some frustration. But, suddenly, out of the blue, a darling little girl appeared!

Since that fateful day, we’ve done some more paperwork, but mostly we’re biting our nails, waiting until we get the okay to travel to Guangdong Province in China, where we will pick up our darling daughter.

This blog is our story. Wish us luck!
