Well, finally there is some movement on the Nepal front. FINALLY they appointed another Minister of Women and Children. This has been the major hold up with the adoptions. Also, on Monday 3 families that got referrals in May finally got approval to travel and I think many of them left today. You wonder how I know this, and all I have to say is I LOVE the blogging world. 🙂
So, who knows when this whole adoption thing is going to happen, especially since we are pondering a dossier for Rwanda. Hmmmm… so much to think about!
Also, River has started back at daycare full time, which has been quite a change for all of us! I do miss hanging out with him everyday, and am looking forward to this upcoming weekend in Colorado with some family. He is very full of personality, jokes and WORDS. He still seems to have a hard time doing complete sentences, it’s more like “I ahhhhh… teetertotter ehhh… daycare”. It’s mighty cute!
He is working better with other kids and although still doesn’t like to share, is doing much better at it! We also have been working on sitting at the dinner table the WHOLE time while eating. (at least kyle and I:) He struggles with this one, but the other day, I guess kyle and river were eating and when River was done kyle put him down but said that dada was still eating. At that point River sat down and just started wailing, and when kyle asked him what was wrong, he screamed, “Eat dada, Eat!!!”
Well, at least he gets the point!
So, before I go, below is the good news from nepal from a very good source….
wish us luck! we could use all the positive thoughts you can muster up!
