Today when we entered the orphanage we went upstairs to the same area as yesterday to wait for the children.
We found out they were downstairs in another room so we went downstairs to get them. When the door to the room was opened we saw Shawna and Lindsay! They are so precious and how I hope and pray they are rescued soon. They need and deserve to be in a family; NOT an adult mental institution! Sonya was near the door and when she heard me say her name she crawled to the doorway but a nanny picked her up. We were surprised to see another nanny holding Dusty’s hands and “walking” him to us. The doctor had told us yesterday that he could only crawl. They let me carry Dusty upstairs but a nanny carried Sonya. The nanny brought a brush and hair tie to fix Sonya’s hair. They brought a rug out for us to play on the floor with the children.
I believe that Sonya may have had a fever because she felt very warm and her little nose was red and chapped.
Dusty was very stuffy and sleepy. Needless to say we didn’t do much “playing” but we did lots of snuggling!
We felt very blessed to be able to love on them when they weren’t feeling so well. Sonya did spend some time “feeling” the different pages in the animal book.
She also enjoyed playing with a toy we got from a McDonald’s while we were in Kiev.
Dusty wanted to suck his thumb and rest on Daddy.
It was sweet how he would put his hand up John’s sleeve and rub the hair on John’s arm.
Sonya kept "orchestrating" my hands by putting different things in them...
and then squeezing them into a hug around her.
This time with Dusty & Sonya really touched our hearts and we shed many tears again today.
