Good Times

11 Jul

We are here in our region and are enjoying our time. We visited the little boy yesterday and we were blessed with a great visit. He is still a little leary of Alan but he has had very minimal exposure to men. He was very responsive to the Russian language. He loved playing with building toys and looking at touchy feely books. He was mystified by the bubbles when Alan blew them. I had a little accident with him during his snack time…He grabbed the glass mug of apple juice so quickly that I did not support it and really didn’t know that he needed it based on conversations regarding what he could do…He and I both were sticky with apple juice afterwards and he furrowed his brow and grunted some because he did not have but a few drops left to drink.

We will visit him in a little while and hope to formally accept the referral, with notarized signatures on our paperwork today.

We have posted a photo of us in Mosow. Again, we are not going to put region-specific photos or details at this time. Suffice it to know, the agency staff are taking very good care of us and helping us during this time in our region.

We appreciate your continued prayers for us, especially as we travel home on Sunday (LONG DAY with no overnight stays) and as we (God willing) enter the next stage of this journey, the waiting time between trips.

I’m so thankful to all of you who have shared your experiences and have helped us to have a better expectation of what this trip would be like.

Hope to talk again soon 🙂

    Heather I’m so glad you were able to post! I pray everything continues to go smoothly. I also pray Alan has strength as the little boy warms up to him.

    Hugs to you,

    Been logging on to see if there were any updates. It sounds as if you all are having a good time. The little boy will start to feel more comfortable the more time that is spent together. May God continue to protect you all and bless you.
