Gotcha, Clara Grace!

We have a new daughter!
After traveling to the Civil Affairs office in Guangzhou, we first spied our new daughter as the Director and Nanny of the Social Welfare Institute (SWI) came in the front door. They were holding a little, black haired girl in a bright yellow suite... Just a glimpse, but it was enough to see that she is BEAUTIFUL.

After a short wait, we were called to the center of the floor and... there she was... our beautiful daughter... screaming.
It was the most beautiful sound in the world!
And, immediately, Jian was there with a toy bus as an offering. He was not deterred even when Clara Grace pushed his gift aside. Jian rose to the occasion and has shown his innate brotherly ability.

I'll blog more later with more pictures but for now we are exhausted.
