Surprise Blessing…

12 Jul

We are still in our region today (Saturday) and we were blessed by a 3rd visit with our little one. This was unusual, to our knowledge, since it is a Saturday. We have had some other things happen that were not expected (but were good).

It has rained most of the time but today was not bad so we were able to take him outside at the orphanage.

He was sleepy when we saw him at first today but he did better once he had a snack of banana and some drink (which I did not spill this time!).

We head back to the U.S. tomorrow morning….very very early! We are flying non-stop (with a little layover in Moscow) and, though we are leaving on a Sunday, we will also be arriving back in the U.S. on a Sunday, too, due to the time differences between Russia and the U.S.

Thanks for all the warm and encouraging comments that you all have made on the blog and through email. We are so grateful for your prayers as we have visited our little one and as we travel.

God bless,
Heather

    I can’t wait to see pictures!!! (I totally mean that- I can’t wait until you’re done with court and can finally publish pictures and we can see his beautiful face with you!!)
    Hope you are getting back into the swing of things now that you are home- that time difference is a doozy, isn’t it?

    Hi Heather,
    How exciting that you have accepted your referral!! Congratulations!! I hope your court date happens very quickly so you can get back to your little one soon. I have to read all the details of your trip – Things have been a little crazy here! Thank you so much for your email. We are in a state of limbo until 2 more weeks when we hear further news from our Agency. We are so disappointed, but trying to have hope.
    Congrats again – I’m so happy for you!
    Teresa
