We had a guestbook on the original version of the website (from 2005-2006) but it became such a problem with spam that we retired it in 2007. However we retained the posts that friends and family had left and we proudly archive them here.

Grandma here – just waiting for the “imminent arrival”. Everyone is busy here with christmas and wishing you could be with us. However, with little one about to make her entrance, we know you’ll will be filled with joy upon her arrival. We will hook up with you on Christmas Day via Skype. Love you
Robb, Christine and Family on December 16, 2005 from Vancouver Island, BC
Hi Craig and Kana! We’re so glad to read that everything is going so smoothly with baby – wishing you a peaceful and happy Christmas season!
Bob and Lois Timms on November 9, 2005 from Surrey B.C.
Lois and I follow all your exploits,travels,family gatherings,photos and experiences within Japan. You are a remarkable couple and we wish you both and your future child the best of both cultures. In response to the request by Kana; in our opinion, the place of birth of your child will become important to her/him in the future and all relevant options should become very important. Personally I was raised in a family with a mother from Portugal and a father from England. I still rue the day the language of my mother was not spoken in my house. Please do not make the same error with your new child.Bob & Lois Timms
Jeremy Kiffiak on October 15, 2005 from Victoria, BC
