Gotcha Day

We were able to pick all of the children up and take them to finish processing our paperwork.

Seth is receiving treatment for his illness ??? They advised it would be best for him to remain at the orphanage and finish off the treatments.  As much as we hated to do this, we felt it was best as we do not have immediate access to medical care.  He should be done with his treatments on Monday and we will pick him up them.  We can still visit him twice a day, so we are planning to split up and visit with him one on one, mama in the morning and papa in the evening.

We are having so much fun.  Today I walked with Noah and Gloria, visited several shops looking for shoes and clothes for Sammy.  Sammy is sooo small.  I knew he was small and purchased two 24 month bottoms along with three 18 month bottoms.  They are all way to big.  The shorts in the gotcha pictures are a 24 month and they literally fall off of him.  I had to roll them down to keep them up.   He really needs a 12 month pants. 

And what you all have been waiting for ....
