We got her!

Don't have time to post photo's right now, but will do it soon.

Gotcha Day went great. The girls were very shy - they did not cry, laugh or talk. They just looked at each other. They were both very bashful at first.
Then Jeannie broke into a song - " Hello mama, Hello dada, how are you?"...
She sang the whole song in English with little dance moves! It was darling. She is such a sweet girl. She has a very shy little smile. She warmed up to all of us very quickly. No crying at all today.
Her nanny told us that she has not been the same girl since Gia left 2 years ago.
We are excited to see the change in her once she settles in and gets to know us.
Gia is being a great big sister.
They are both very hungry right now, and daddy is out getting noodles, dumplings, and fried rice. Yumm. Got to go!

Will post again in a few hours.
