Gotcha Day!!

It's been a long 20 hr day. It is currently 1:50am so this post will be brief as we have to get up at 5:45a.m.!

The Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square was fabulous. We then had lunch in the Beijing airport and boarded a 3:30pm flight to Lanzhou. We arrived at 5:30pm, and quickly took the 1 hour ride to the hotel. Arriving at 7:30pm, we were told to come get our babies at 8pm!!!!! We had to scramble to our rooms. Our luggage didn't arrive until 5 minutes before 8pm. We were all emotionally charged because we new our babies where waiting in the conference room. It was all very overwhelming and exciting. As you will see from the pictures below, we were fortunate to get one happy baby!!! I will post more details tomorrow.

Dear Sean, Judy and Kylie,

Could she be any happier? My goodness! She will give Ellie a run for the money with her beautiful smile. We have been waiting anxiously for this posting and it was well worth it. Kylie is so lovely and she will bring your life so much happiness. Please send more photos when you can. I cannot wait to see Kylie upon your return. I will be at the airport with my camera and a big smile! Love, love, love!!!
