Oh, you are in for a real treat with that Chongqing "Spicy Girl." Our daughter is from CQ, Nanchuan City to be exact, and CQ girls have spicy personalities. People from China also say that the girls from CQ are the most beautiful. I cannot wait to follow your journey. CQ is a beautiful city!!! If you have questions, then let me know. I'll try to help in any way I can.

Dawn & Lee: I am guessing your wee one is from Qianjiang (hence the Qian as her surname). Qianjiang girls are marvellous! We are the proud parents (for almost 5 yrs now) of a Qianjiang sweetie pie and wish you all the best - your wee one is darling and we hope all goes well!
