The wind blew away the dark rain clouds and yesterday turned out to be the hottest day yet for us. John went to get a train ticket back to Kiev for Thursday evening. Please pray that he does not have to turn it in for refund.
Court is supposed to be tomorrow.
Our visits with the boys have been going well.
Our Big Boy gets so excited when he is playing with us that he has tripped twice now. The first time was 2 days ago. He bonked his forehead above his eye. He was okay but John took him to get ice. Strike One.
Then yesterday he tripped when Rachel was chasing him and got a bloody nose. John was the one to take him again. Strike two. This time the caretakers/ nurse scolded John and our Big Boy.
They put some white cream all over his nose and forehead. I got a picture but since my computer crashed, I wasn't able to upload pictures. While checking out our Big Boy's nose, I used the opportunity to look in his mouth. The head director told us that he has had two surgeries. Surely one of them included fixing his palate. Nope. His cleft is bigger than Dennis' was.
I guess he will be having surgery soon after he gets home. No wonder he does not talk very much. He tries, but he just can't articulate very well.
Today we are going on a picnic to the river. I am looking forward to it.
I also found out that another adoptive family is coming in a few days. Yay!
Thank you for lifting us up in prayer.
I'm still looking into how to get sponsorship to Sasha. I think he is speechless that people who don't even know him would be kind and loving enough to help him. Thank you.
