We were able to visit Alice twice today. The days are beginning to feel a bit like the movie "Groundhog Day". The days all start out the same with just a few changes to each day. We get up, check the email, eat breakfast, have devotional time, leave for orphanage. Come back to the apt, eat lunch, leave for orphanage. Come back, eat dinner, clean up, read books (I knit), go to bed.
At this afternoon's visit, Alice did the thing that I have been dying for her to do. She fell asleep while we were walking around...but in Erin's arms!
Yep, she fell asleep on Erin. Although I love that she did, I have to admit I'm a bit jealous. I wouldn't take that away from him for anything. But, I would have liked for it to be me, too. She fought going to sleep the whole time I was holding her. I guess Erin is a more soothing walker than I am.
I did make her that hat, though. I finished it this afternoon before our 2nd visit. The nannies at the orphanage loved it. I think. They kept giving me the thumbs up sign and talking really fast.
We heard from our facilitator, M, that The Vote was postponed yet again. They don't know when they'll reschedule it. So, it doesn't appear that it will derail our adoption. And hopefully more orphans will be found by their families. We haven't heard this officially from Reece's Rainbow, however.
Court is tomorrow at 2 pm local time. I'm nervous, but not. I know that God is in control and He has a plan for us and for Alice. Court is the last hurdle before she'll legally be ours. I'll update as soon as I can.
