Smile Welcoming new GSD (2 yr old rescue) to family

Hi everybody...was just wanting some advice. My husband and I have an almost 4 year (d.o.b. 05-04-2010) old German Shepherd female. We are rescuing a German Shepherd from a GSD rescue. He is going on 2 years old in August. I have already went through the application process and home visit. So we found out a couple days ago that we were approved to get him. What is a good way to introduce him? I've read a couple of things via internet...where some articles say to let your dog you have now go somewhere like your parents house for a couple of days to give the new dog a chance for adjustment in the new house and environment, but I don't know what would be better. They will be introduced prior to me bringing him home, but should I let him get adjusted without her being there? Any information would be great if you've been through this kind of situation before. Thanks in advance, Jamie
