At Last...Milana's coming home!!!!!!!

We got the call!! Our referral is in.
Milana IS coming home!!!
Our sweet, new daughter is 19 months old (born Nov 18, 2007).
Her Chinese name is Wu Shi Yun
She is waiting for us in Wenzhou, Zhejiang, China.
We are over the moon happy!!!!
Dahlia, Daddy and I were all together and we videotaped the moment.
(Picture and file will only come next week.)
Check back later* for details and more happiness.
.......did I mention how happy we are?
Update: Thank you! First of all, thank you to the Lord my God, for blessing us with another daughter - there is no bigger gift than this.
And thank you to this amazing community of kindred spirits who support each other and lift each other up. To those who have left comments, most whom I've never met but feel I know, and for those who have e-mailed or called me - I'm honored by your expressions of happiness for us.
What a wild ride. Thanks for joining in.
Stay tuned......more to come.
* later could be as late as this Friday (June 26th). We are in a big group and tomorrow is a holiday here and everything has to be verified and translated for the whole group before we see pictures. So, stay tuned.........

Congratulations! I linked to your blog from RQ and noticed that you will be traveling to Zhejiang. We were there in September. It is beautiful! I'm guessing that you will fly into Hangzhou. When the locals would see us with our daughter they would say, "ahhh...all beautiful girls come from Hangzhou(capital city of Zhejiang)" :) Our daughter is from Yiwu. Again, congrats!

Congrats. My daughter was from the Wenzhou orphanage and adopted in Nov. 2005. It's a great orphanage, and my daughter was (and continues to be) amazing. I am actually born in Wenzhou myself and left for the States when I was 6 years old, and my parents goes there for annual vacations. It's a great city.
