The family of the Pakistani teenager shot by the Taliban are seeing the girl for the first time since the attack.

Fifteen-year-old Malala Yousufzai's parents and siblings have finally arrived at the British hospital where she is recovering.

"I love her. There were tears in our eyes when we first saw her. It was tears of happiness," her father, Ziauddin Yousufzai, said.

Malala's doctors say she is making a remarkable recovery. She is able to speak and, so far, there are no signs of brain damage.

On Thursday, Malala's father promised his daughter will return to Pakistan after she has recovered from the shooting, despite the continuing threat of Taliban violence against the girl.

The girl was shot on Oct. 9 for speaking out against the terrorist group and advocating for women's education.

The Taliban shot her in the neck and head as she was on her way home from school in Swat Valley.

She was airlifted to a hospital in Britain on Oct. 15 where she is currently recovering. Her father, Ziauddin Yousufzai, is expected to fly soon to Britain to see his daughter.
