Sorry for the gap in between posts. Tuesday went pretty smoothly with the embassy appointment and taking the children back to the hotel with us. Eli was great on Tuesday- he barely made a peep and is really a happy baby. He loves kisses and giggles anytime he gets them from anyone! Wednesday proved to be a rougher day. We were supposed to take the kids and go visit the orphanages that they came from. Unfortunatley, I spent the day vomitting, and Matthew got a brief glimpse into the life of a single parent as he ventured out with Eli without me. He said the first orphanage was so hard to see, and the kids who came from there did not seem to respond well to the visit. And since Eli was having blow-out diaper, after blow-out diaper he decided that he would pass on visiting Eli's orphanage. I was still sick when they returned but Candy gave me a magic stop-vomitting pill that put me to sleep for 12 hours and I am now awake feeling much better. Matthew and Eli are sleeping and both are pretty conjested and dehydrated. My bag never arrived (Julia and Janet- I got your packages to your kiddos on Tuesday. Fortunately they were in our other bag that did arrive). I am definitely glad we kept our expectations low for this trip!
So today we are pretty much just relaxing until we head to the airport at 7pm. We're ready to be home!
