We’ve got her!

We are in Nanchang and all is well. We had a beautiful greeting with our little Katie! Then a couple of hours of intense tears and now, finally sleeping. She is beautiful and seems very healthy with a sweet smile and strong personality :-). She loves Tyler! So much to tell but will have to wait until tomorrow. I was awake at 4am again this morning, we flew to Nanchang and after all the excitement today, I’m exhausted! We have a 9am appointment at the municipal office. Morning will be an interesting new challenge:-)). Goodnight!

    Mazal Tov, Risa! I can only imagine the joy which you and your mom felt in seeing Katie for the first time. I bet you were flying so high that your feet didn’t even touch the ground. Please post photos tomorrow, after all of you get a good night sleep.
