Phil and I are trying to continue to cling to the word.... rest, relax and enjoy the last few days of this time here in Kazakhstan...
We arrived at the BH today to find out that Grace had face planted the floor this morning while RUNNING to breakfast. Notice her nose in the pictures... bloody, cut and bruised.... oh Grace! ;)
Here are some pictures from this morning:
We had a good day with the twins... Papa took his MP3 player and they LOVED sitting in his lap listening to Praise and worship music (;)) One of their favorite new things to do is to tell me they have sugars behind their ears and have me looks... which of course ends in LOTS of giggles and kisses as we make sure to get all the sugar off and from behind their ears.
I know I say it everyday... but, they are so different... They look at us differently... their smiles are different!
Faith threw a HUGE fit today and DID NOT want her Papa to leave her... The caregiver finally PULLED her off him and held her... ;( so so so sad and hard to keep leaving them there.
I keep thinking that soon I'll post about orphanage life and some of the things we've seen and witnessed... however, everyday I can't bring myself to type it out.... you see... it's hard to keep leaving MY babies there... Thank you Lord for protecting them...
I guess I'll sign-off... Please say a prayer tonight that our paperwork is almost here... expected arrival was Wed. (tomorrow).... and we're praying and trusting that there were/are NO delays.
Court is Thursday @ 3 PM... Jan. 20th... (that's 3am Thursday morning for most of you...)
Thanks for the overwhelming prayers and support we've seen and felt...
We are so blessed by all of you...
I decided to try one more time before posting this... and this
|(Faith): I think that smile says: "I sure like this music"... :)|
|Jammin' with Papa... life is GRAND! (notice Grace's nose... OUCH!)|
|Notice Grace... she just relaxed as she listened and leaned on Papa... (it has to do with what they are listening too.. :))|
|Oh my.. this is a metaphor of life in the future with 4 girls!! ha ha!!! Dishing out tenge (money)! Played again with it for a long time... so sweet! They are now counting to 5 in English... thanks to counting and recounting the tenge! :)|
|Nothing more to say than: SUGAR! Grace was cheering me on to get Faith's sugar... ;)|
|...and then Grace is QUICK to say that she's sure that she has some behind her ear as well... Faith's helping me look... YEP.. you guessed it.. she did! Do you know how bad it is to leave sugar behind ears? ...it's BAD... very bad!!!|
|...and we ended the time back in Papa's arm... listening to some sweet tunes with Papa! Notice Phil's hair? He's lost so much hair since Oct.. seriously.. he has! Bless his heart!|
