Our Girl- UPDATED WITH MORE PICTURES

"My life was spent in a holding pattern awaiting the happiest landing ever made…so wonderful I'd do it all over and over again if each flight led to you. But I still wouldn't be able to tell you how much you mean to me. I just want to start each day by opening my eyes and seeing you and end each day seeing you before I close them. In between times, I'll just look in my heart. You are always there."– R. Reagan







More to come! Too emotionally exhausted to write right now. Everything couldn't have gone better. She is amazing!

UPDATED

Right after waking up she wasn't so sure about us being there.


Eden's foster mother helped me bribe her to come to me with a snack.


Eden's foster mother gave us a beautiful hanbok.


She liked Ron right away just smiling at him... it was so cute! She even let him eat some of her snack!



Us with Eden's foster mother.


Eden and I with her foster mother and case worker.


All too soon it was time to go. I can't wait for tomorrow!!!
