We had plans to go to church today but by the time we got the information about how to get there using the metro, it was too late. Better luck next week! We visited with Susan today and although it was another pleasant one, I was just a teeny bit worried. Yesterday she had a rash on her belly and back. I had expressed my concern but was told that we would have to wait until Monday for any results. Well today it was much worse and had spread all over her body! Even underneath her little eyes and hands. She doesn't seem to have much discomfort because of it so I am hoping that it is just a virus that will soon leave. Others have suggested Roseola but I guess we'll just have to wait until tomorrow. I am not sure what happens at the orphanage when the children become ill. Is there an on-call doctor or do they take them in? Let's just pray that it's nothing serious and that she will get the treatment needed if needed.
We stayed inside for our whole visit today. They didn't even offer us a stroller to go outside. We were fine to stay in and actually shared the playroom with another family who is also adopting. Although they were both from the city and country where we are staying the husband spoke English. It was nice to speak with someone without having them laugh in your face as if to say, "You crazy Americans." It was nice to hear their story and see their hope of adding another little one to their family. They are hoping to adopt a little 4 month old girl. She was a beauty too! We have seen the mother before during other visits but this was the first time we had seen them together. Great couple and another lucky little girl. She and Susan are both in the same groupa! Two little friends finding their families together! Let's hope the other 7 find theirs soon too! (I know of three little boys with DS in this orphanage who are waiting for their families. All three are on Reece's Rainbow. One is in Susan's groupa but the other two are older. The one who is in Susan's groupa was also born in Nov. 2011 and the others were born in 2009. If you are interested to know who then let me know! This is a great city and a great orphanage to adopt from.)
Susan loves the baby sling. It is an instant dream catcher! I have to laugh because sometimes I wonder if babies really love it because they feel so warm and cozy and comfortable or if they just think, "Well heck, I can't move, might as well just close my eyes. No sense struggling." Tee hee! Whatever the case may be she enjoys a nice little nap and I enjoy a nice little cuddle. She is doing so much better on her tummy and she can even roll over now. That first time I had to give her a little nudge, but now she can do it. She is my future Olympian! All is well here. The chocolate is yummy, the cheese and bread are delightful, and our time spent together is just splendid! Sure wish I had someone to put me in a sling and rock me to sleep. OK maybe that's a little creepy! I'll just stick with a nice semi cozy bed. Good night! Prayers to everyone! Love to you all! Hang in there mama! xoxoxo
