For the past year, we have followed John and Jacqui on their journey to adopt a daughter from China. We watched as they waited for their referral, traveled to China, and eventually brought home little Roma. A few weeks ago, we wrapped up shooting their part of the story. Below, Jacqui discusses saying goodbye to the producers and the film crew in her blog.

This past weekend was the tearful goodbyes to the producers and the film crew that have been following us on our journey to Roma. We responded to a request they posted on the FCC newsletter at about this time last year from:
They were looking for a couple that was close to picking up their child from China. Well, last year we really thought we were within months of getting our referral. This journey lasted longer than anyone anticipated. They are done filming us and plan to release the film this fall.
It has been a blessing that they have been involved in our journey. During the interviews, they asked some very difficult questions which then got us learning more on the myriad issues surrounding international and interracial adoption.
I have to thank you, Barb and Nancy, for opening my eyes and I hope to be a better mom because of your passion for this documentary.
