Hi! A lot has happened since yesterday! Here's a quick update...
We took a short van ride to Hannah's Hope to meet our boys yesterday afternoon. We waited in a play area while they went to get the boys and bring them out. The first time I saw Fikadu he was wearing a red & white striped shirt and bright pink heart shaped sunglasses. He looked like a little rock star. =) Both boys were very hesitant at first. Fikadu warmed up when I got out some little plastic flying helicopter toys that we brought. You silde them up a stick and the discs fly. He loved it. we played together a long time. Abush let Cris hold him the whole time, but he didn't want to look at her. every time she looked at him he would look away. He has warmed up a lot since then.
We came back to the hotel, had baths (cold ones) and put them in new clean jammies. Fikadu brushes his teeth and washes his hands really well. Such a big boy. Both boys love the electronic toys that Cris brought for them. they love the flashing lights. They both love to play with my cell pjhone & iPod too. Abush likes to chew on them both. =) The boys both sit really well. Cris sang them to sleep. She slept in the big bed with Abush and Fikadu & I slept in 2 twin beds in the same room. Cris & I didn't sleep much. Too much on our minds I guess. We woke up to smiles and giggles from the boys.
Today we had to be up early to go to our Embassy appointment. We are waiting in the lobby for the shuttle as I write this. I hope to post a picture or two later today!
Love to you all! We miss you & can't wait to be home.
