Even Quicker Update! (I think)

Sometime soon I will post about the travelers' adventures, the homecoming and first meeting, attachment, toddler parenting mishaps, and our first two days together. I can't do any of that until the pictures are uploaded and the suitcases are unpacked. But I can tell you this:

Right now, in my room, sleep two of the most precious children in the world - ds, who loves his little sister fiercely already, who makes me prouder and prouder all the time

and I., whose happiest place is on the hip of her Momma, whose smiles are almost always for her brother (certainly kisses are just for him!) but who can't fall asleep without Adadda holding her, and who sings an "Adadda" song of her own invention.

Tonight, dh, absent for what feels like an eternity (and with experiences that he says have, in a good way, aged him) and I will sleep there as well.

I love them so much my heart hurts.

I am unbelievably excited, relieved, and...and...well, just plain overwhelmed for you. The years of waiting and struggle have brought you a daughter. It is amazing.

Oh, this post has brought tears to my eyes! I can't wait to hear more and see pictures!

Congratulations on your daughter's homecoming!
