Gotcha Day

I'm happy to report that Allison picked up HotDog last night. It's been a long day for them but they are doing well. Allison said she already has quite the little personality. She is a very serious child that knows what she wants. She has a great appetite and is a very strong little girl.

I can't express how good it feels to know that my baby is finally where she belongs. It's been a long 2+ years since we started this whole process and it feels so good to be this close to bringing her home. Allison is still a little under the weather so she is trying to catch up on her sleep whenever HotDog sleeps. I'm glad to hear that she is a very good sleeper.

I almost forgot to mention that she is the most beautiful girl in the world.....
