Notice the famous "yellow dress". It certainly brought us luck!
The court room....
There were quite a few questions in court, but nothing too hard. The prosecutor wanted to know exactly how much money we spend on each child per month. That was tricky to figure out quickly! When the judge asked Travis why he specifically wanted to adopt from this city, Travis' brain went into a coma. He couldn't think of anything to say, so he just kind of shrugged. I thought we would be denied right there! Then they wanted to know who would help me take care of so many children. I said my husband would help and they all laughed!
Hearing the judge say how the children were invalids and had never, ever had a visitor was tough to hear. Never again my sweeties!
Thank you so much for all your prayers and great ideas and support! You are all my lifeline!
Travis flies home on Friday so then I will be here alone. Thank God I have met such wonderful friends here that I won't even feel alone. I'll actually have a bed to myself! Really, I will miss Travis a lot!
Nastya has a fever again and has been crying a lot! They don't want me to feed her anymore because they think the food we fed her gave her a rash. I don't think kids usually get rashes from pasta, but who knows?
Moira was lying in her "pen" facing away from me when we came to see her today. When she heard my voice, she somehow managed to flip herself over to see me! I was thrilled! Do you think she looks a little more "alive"?
Sweet little Xavier really needs a mommy and daddy! He is free for adoption, just in case anyone is looking for a sweet son!
I ate something today that has made me really sick. That's what I get for being adventurous. I should have stuck with eating cereal!
