Monday, April 18, 2011 we were without Carey and Aimee because today they are taking the children to get pictures taken for their passports. The sun is still shining enough to hang laundry to dry at the orphanage.
We even find two burrows as we walk to the children’s building – guess there is no need for a lawn mower. Had to take a picture for Johnny!
Dusty was not doing well again today. Praying that his cold goes away soon.
We are trying to get him to make eye contact with us. Every once in a while he will look our way – we cheer him on when he does. I held out my hand today and HE put his hand in mine! Let me tell you – my heart leaped and it brought tears to my eyes.
Keep the prayers going… he has a long way to go but we are excited to be with him every step of the way!
Sonya was chipper as usual. She is pure sunshine!
She thought Daddy was a jungle gym and crawled all over him. He loved all the attention and she thought it was really funny.
Dusty even leaned over Daddy’s legs. A little exploring - yeah for Dusty!
Soon it was time for the children to go back to their groupa for lunch. We got some pictures of them at the tables.

Thanks for all the prayers and thoughtful comments!
