A little bit about her

We had our family interview last night with the Chernobyl Children's Project, and we were given just a little bit of info about the girl who will be staying with us in July. We will get a photo and bio tomorrow night, but I wanted to share what we know so far.

Her name is Tanya, and she will turn 10 in a couple of weeks.
Her hobbies are reading, drawing, crafts, dancing, and bike-riding.
She cannot swim or roller skate, but wants to learn.
She is cheerful, sociable, mischievous, and likes to make people laugh.
She likes Barbies, trying on clothes, and fixing her hair.

Oh, doesn't she sound like a typical American 10-year-old girl?

Also, the Visas were obtained from the American Embassy in Moscow, so it looks like they are definitely going to come!
