So we are back in the hotel room.  It is a little before 3 in the afternoon here and Mia has been sleeping since about 1:15.  The foster mother said she didn't really sleep last night and that she had been a little fussy all morning.  So we are happy so see her rest.

Things at the agency went fine.  The foster family showered her with so many gifts it is unbelievable.  We haven't been able to go through everything just yet.  The foster grandmother made Mia so many clothes including some that she embroidered with her new Korean name Kwon Soon Mi.  It is so obvious to us that she has been well taken care of and loved so much.

Sam's Mom has gone to get us lunch and we are just hanging out in the hotel room for now.  We will take it one step at a time to see what we do next.

She is a Daddy's girl already.  She loved Sam instantly.  She was happy to sit in my lap when we got back to the room and we had a lot of time with my parents on Skype so they got to just watch her with us.  

Okay so in the middle of writing this Mia woke up at 3:15.  It is now just about 6:00 and we have had lunch with her.  She was very hungry and ate Kimbap (Korean sushi), strawberry yogurt, and apple juice.  She was very hungry.  We have also had several opportunities to change poopy diapers.  And by we I mean me.

Right now as I type this she is playing with Daddy.  But a few minutes ago she came over to see what I was doing.  Daddy was holding her and she kept leaning over to make me look at her.  

We are so in love with this little girl.  It feels like she has been with us forever. 

So there will be lots more to tell but for now we will leave you with what you came here to see, MIA!
