Hi,
We cut the cartoon out of Sunday’s (October 29th, 2006, Macomb Daily) page which features Marvin’s, Ming Ming. My Wife and I are about half-way through the Chinese adoption process, which will hopefully priveledge us with a beautiful Baby Girl from China. Ming Ming is an inspirational character for us and the Halloween toon is now hanging on our fridge. Thanks for the lift!
