Hi all, we are sitting here at the hotel waiting to got to the airport. We have had a pretty good week with some ups and downs. So lets start with the positives. The boys have slept well and seem to be adjusting pretty well. Not perfect, but not the worst. Somewhere in between.
Tuesday was a hard day. Tyson Fikadu seemed to be rejecting me (Cris) for a good part of the day. Acting sad and not wanting to do much or eat. But we were able to have some close moments.Tatum Abush shows us quickly that he wants HIS way and HIS way only. He pitches a fit when he doesn't get his way.
Wednesday was also a hard day. We went over to HH to see the kids and so Chuck could video tape one of the birthmom meetings. TF was very sad and it seemed to sit in that he doesn't belong there anymore. He was scooted out of the class room and really didn't know what to do. I held him and he cried. It was the first time we saw him cry. Part of the grieving process.
We also attended the dinner the other night and enjoyed the music and the dancing. It was so fun. Tyson Fikadu was the hit of the night. Really showing the moves. We loved seeing this side of him.
On the down note, Tyson Fikadu has the itchy scabbies bumps all over. We treated him with the cream when we got here and now he is just miserable. Sad, crying, pouting, uncomfortable. We have done all we can to help with the itching, but he is sooooooooooooo uncomfortable. Please PRAY for him and our trip home. It will prove to be a LONG trip home. He needs some relief and he doesn't understand that we can't do anything else to help him.
We fly out tonight around midnight and land around 4:20 at our "local airport". Pray us home. We are so tired and ready to come home. We miss the girls so much and are eager to get home. We need your prayers.
