Saturday's Blog Post

If you've emailed me within the last two days, please know that we'll respond to you eventually. My army account is having trouble downloading, and we time out. If it's urgent, just use my gmail account to get in touch with me (Laura) as well as Bob's gmail account. As Bob says, our internet connection is straight off Antique's Roadshow, and it takes a while to download email. Gmail works perfect, though.

That said.. on to the star of the blog. Today was another holiday, and only one visit allowed to us. Vic is definitely attaching nicely to us, which warms our hearts, but makes for a difficult time when we have to leave. He gets very upset and cries uncontrollably when we lay him in his crib at naptime. It just breaks my heart.

I was rattled when we left today after hearing him cry harder than I ever have (in the only 10 hrs we've been with him total). So, I forgot to leave diapers for his overnight. After lunch, our driver took us back to the baby house so I could drop them off.

I was really hoping to just drop them off without Vic seeing us, but he spotted me as soon as I opened his baby room door. That little boy had the biggest grin on his face when he recognized me. He put his arms out to me to pick him up - they had him and his 7 friends on the potties. After I cleaned him up, put a fresh diaper and pants on him, I had to give him to a caregiver since I wasn't allowed to stay for an afternoon visit. After lots of kisses, I started waving and saying Paka Paka (bye-bye) and walking to the door. He thought I was playing a game with him, but I saw his little face turn sad as I was closing the door.

My heart just aches to get that little guy home. He's everything we have hoped for and more.
