Things continue to go well here. It's been a down week since the DHS officer isn't in and I don't have a passport for Bright yet. Still...a good week. Paul and I never seem to run out of things to talk about. He's so wonderful--as are all of the children at Hands of Mercy (and his wife Lawrencia)!!!
Bright continues to become more and more attached to me. He now cries for me to keep him if someone he doesn't know tries to take him, and sometimes cry for me to take him if I walk in the room and someone else is holding him. I know--I can't believe I'm letting other people hold him, but the situation here is different. I don't want him to be traumatized again if I have to leave him behind so I feel like it's best to "share" him a bit for now.
Looks like I will try to delay my homecoming by a few days and either come home on Saturday the 31st or Monday the 2nd. Lots of things directing me to do that--good things! And this way if by chance they do issue Bright's visa next Friday I will still be here to take him home with me.
Guess that's it for now. Sorry there's not more to share. I'm writing all of the little details for each day in a journal so when I get home you will have LOTS to read about every day here! LOL!
