Day 1

We have arrived! We are safe and were already able to see our son.

We landed yesterday around 11am and was picked up from the airport and went directly to the childrens home. He was super scared and cried about 90+% of the time, and was also probably teething so felt a little icky. We don't think he remembered us, but 3 months is a long time in the life of a 1 year old! When the Caregiver brought him out, she put stood him on the floor and he did the drunken wobble for a couple of minutes. He didn't take a step, but he didn't have time because I went and scooped him up pretty quickly! We went to the gym and that didn't fly, lots of noise from construction, so we went outside and he did a little better. A Caregiver was burning some brush on the playground so it was a bit noisy outside too.

We have our same driver - Vladimir. We do not have the same Interpreter, instead we have a girl that is new so we had to lead her around a bit (never been to the baby home), but is accomodating so she will be fine. Today they are picking us up at 11:15am and we get to go see the little guy again!

We met Glenn & Lisa and the Duda family. Everyone is pretty awesome, so we feel lucky to be here with them. We were able to meet Glenn and Lisa's daughter and she is a sweet (active) little thing. What a cutie!

Oh, Bill just found out the Vol's lost! I can't believe he is so willing to miss College Football. Luckily his family will keep him updated.

More to come!

  1. Hi there! I"m glad you were able to see him on Day 1. Neither of our sons remembered us either.

    Thanks again for bringing that gift over for us!
