Blogging the Past: Dossier Pictures

This picture is from June, 2004, when we were finalizing our dossier to send to China. One of the requirements is that you provide six snapshots of you inside and outside your home. Our friend Joanna came over and took some pictures of us, of which this is one we submitted.

Looking at it now I wonder what the Chinese matchers made of it. We've often wondered if the fact that I'm holding Lucy influenced their selection of Dada for us, given that Dada was identified as a child who "likes to be held". You can also see a Chinese painting and a Chinese kite in the background, as well as a picture of my grandfather.

I don't remember now if we purposefully posed ourselves there or if it was just a natural place to stand (which it was).

It's hard to believe it's been three years since we sent all that paperwork off to China....
