She's here!!

I'm gonna keep this short and sweet because we are all very tired :)

We met Laura after waiting a LONG time for the flight to arrive and for the kids to all go through customs. They warned us that the kids would be very stand off-ish and possibly not want anything to do with us at first, so that's what I was expecting. Laura walked right up to us and gave me the biggest bear hug ever and I couldn't help but start crying. From what very little we know about her, she is such a sweet natured little girl.



Meeting Laura!




Lucy was seriously all over her. It was the sweetest thing I've ever seen. She had her arm wrapped around hers and her head resting on Laura's shoulder, completely unprovoked. What. In. The. World. If that doesn't make you cry, nothing will.

Laura got really scared when we got to the car and cried the whole ride home. Epic fail on my part....LOSING the freaking parking ticket. Seriously who does that. Oh and apparently you can't just pay the outrageous fee and be on your way.....you have to sit there in the car, with a screaming foreign child, while the ticket lady (or whatever they're called) writes up a report, takes pictures of your license, and calls the Keeper of All Tickets on the phone. It was horrendous.

Once we got home Laura was back to her sweet self. We got her dressed in her new, warm, cozy pjs, tucked her into bed after singing her a few songs, and she was out like a light. We are so thrilled that she is here!!
