US girl reunited with father 4 years after Japan abduction

CHICAGO (AFP) - Nearly four years after his ex-wife spirited their daughter away to Japan and blocked nearly all his attempts to see her, a Wisconsin doctor welcomed his little girl home on Friday - just in time for Christmas. 'My heart is pounding, I am very nervous. But ready,' Moises Garcia wrote on his Facebook page as he waited for Karina to clear customs and a psychological evaluation at Chicago's O'Hare airport. 'It is all emotional! I can see the picture passing in my mind of all these 4 years. I get almost tears. I just don't know how to react when I see her first. I will do my best.' Mr Garcia fought passionately to get his daughter back after her mother, Emiko Inoue, took five-year-old Karina to Japan in February 2008.
