Another fabulous day. We woke up and hurried and got ready to go see baby sister. All of us were excited to get there and love her up some more. We went up stairs and had a great breakfast of fresh fruit, eggs, pancakes, fresh squeezed juice and macchiatos.
Then we had Brook pick us up and take us to the Care Center. We stopped at All-Mart (yes, Walmart with out the 'W') to get Emily a pair of shoes. We also bought gum and balloons for all of the children at the care center. Then we headed over there and spent a few hours with baby girl.

Connie was allowed to feed her and she did a good job too. Baby ate almost every last bite. Such a good eater. It looked like some sort of cream of wheat cereal. After eating we were all able to interact with baby sister. She would reach out to my hands (Emily's too) and hold on. She grabbed Connie's cross necklace and wouldn't let go. It was very sweet and melted Connie's heart. Baby sister was so content just being with mom today.

On the way out of the care center we gave all of the children balloons and gum. They were all so thankful and appreciative. We got hugs from each of the girls and some of the boys. Tomorrow I'm going to try to spend more time with the boys and get some photos of them as well. I already have some photos of the girls, but would like to get more of them as well.

Next we went to the eye doctor for a new vision Rx for me. I'm going to try to get some glasses and/or contacts. The visit for the physician was only 50 birr (approx $2.75 USD). I'm hoping contacts and glasses will be that way as well. :) If nothing else, I can bring the script back to the states and have a new script for this next year. The third testing station was closed by the time we got there so Joel is picking me up in the morning to take me back when they open.

I'm off to bed and can't wait to get back to the Care Center to see baby girl again. Only two more sleeps until court. :) We can't wait to get her home.
Thank-you all for following along and praying for us. We're not home yet, so please continue your prayers and following our blog.
