"Xie xie" Thank You

"Xie xie ni" (pronounced: Sheay-sheay)
This is the way to say "thank you" in Mandarin-Chinese.

In honor of Thanksgiving, I would like to say "xie xie" for the following:

Xie xie to China for allowing us the privilege of adopting their children.

Xie xie to Josie's birth-parents that choose life for their child.

Xie xie to our guides (Anli and Lifeng) who took amazing care of us while we were in China.

Xie xie to the team at Mott Children's Hospital that assisted in making Josie's open-heart surgery a complete success.

Xie xie to our community of friends and family that continue to pray for our family and Josie's next surgery.

Xie Xie to our employers that support and encourage us to take care of our family and provide such wonderful health insurance.

Xie Xie to my family that continues to amaze and bless me each day.

Xie Xie to all my adoptive friendships I have made over this past year as we completed our adoption journey.

Blessings to you and your family this Thanksgiving holiday.

That is the sweetest picture!

Did you know that in China when someone says Xie Xie, the most proper response is Bu Yong Xie Xie.
