Travis just left on a bus for the "big city". He will be flying home tomorrow. It seems very empty here in the apartment. I will miss him hogging the bed and leaving the toilet seat up! I have the tv on in Russian just to hear some voices!
Please be careful what you write in the comments. My children read my blog everyday and they particularly enjoy reading comments. They always hope that someone will write to them. I wouldn't want them to feel bad. They are really having a hard time with me being gone for so long. I love seeing Anastasia's happy face on the top of my blog!
I found out that we can't apply for passports until after the 10 day wait is over. Passports could take up to six days! I know that is not too long, but I am so ready to be home! I also can't wait to be able to have Nastya and Moira with me all the time!
After I took Travis to the bus stop, I saw a litter of puppies and their mom living under some steps near the train station. I am going to buy some dogfood for them today.
Now, for some pictures.....
I love how Moira is looking at me here. She wanted a bottle and she was definitely telling me how she felt!
I see this dog everyday on my walk to the orphanage. I think he is smiling at me!
Nastya with medicine on her bug bites.
Moira doesn't like to eat, but she loves her bottle!
One of the caregivers told me that she does throw up sometimes and she had to be fed with a tube when she was younger.
My friend, Anya, in front of some delicious cookies! Even though my stomach has been sick, I can still eat cookies!
Yesterday was "Children's Day" here, so they dressed the children fancy. They also have "woman's day" and "men's day" which I think is really nice. No one gets left out!
Nastya loves to drink water!
These are made completely out of paper!
Well, I am off to the orphanage!
