Anyone know what it says?

This scroll was purchased at Mia's Adoption in 2003 and I just adore the picture.
Hoping it says something really meaningful and about children.
Can anyone help me out with the translation. Click on the picture to enlarge.

Photo Album in China

I am waiting rather impatiently for MY phone call from my agency with some good news about our LOSC that is the Letter of Seeking Confirmation asking me if after all this time and energy and waiting I do still want to adopt Xi, Tao Xuan. Can you imagine saying anyone saying nope-changed my mind. But, seriously perhaps people do change their mind or find out more information about the child they petitioned for or perhaps their circumstances changed drastically.

Last week I sent to my agency a SASSY PICTURE BOOK with our pictures and the girls also so she can see her mama and baba. I get tears in my eyes just thinking about how the nannys could be right this minute telling her about us. Amazing. They will use it to talk to her and prepare her for us. Just the same I am sure she will cry and miss her nanny and the only home she has ever known. My mind goes back to the day we met Mia and how scared and small she was and how much she cried. We were so happy and she so sad. And that is how it is for some and for a while, after the grieving process they get happy---after all they have a mom and dad all to themselves showering love and lots of food and hey, life gets good for them.

No Real News

Well we do not have any real news yet on our adoption of Xi, Tao Xuan but several families with our agency received great news yesterday. Just wish it was us. I am encouraged that it may not be too much longer because we were already preapproved for Malia and do not have to wait for our dossier to be reviewed. I did call my agency and they have written a letter asking for our case to be expeditated , but it's anyone's guess if it will be so. But , just the same we are preparing to travel sometime in Sept. Which is also the same month our adult daughter Heather is due to deliver our first grandson Aiden. YEAH!!!! She will be needing help and I would like to be there to help her.
