We had a wonderful afternoon visit with her! She is just precious and we are so thankful for her. What a blessing she is! It is fun as we are getting to know each other, and discovering her personality. She is a very sweet little girl and takes pleasure in the simplest of things. She loves bubbles, the swing, the slide, singing, and just being loved on. Her giggle just melts our hearts! While we were walking the orphanage grounds today and Joel was softly singing to her, she started to sing her own little song. It was too sweet.
This evening as we were walking around downtown (just outside our apartment) we saw a little boy with Down syndrome dancing to some music. He was so cute! It was encouraging seeing him and hope that more families here choose to and are able to keep their children born with Down syndrome.
For now, my blog posts have been somewhat bit brief, but I plan to share more about our experiences with travel, the culture, the orphanage, the people, etc. It's been great so far and are so grateful how wonderful this whole experience has been for us thus far.
Though we are having fun, we miss our boys dearly. We were finally able to Skype with them last night and it was wonderful! Boys, if you're reading this I want you to know that we love you and miss you and are praying for you! We hope you are having fun with Grandpa and Grandma! We can't wait to give you big hugs and kisses when we get home. We just know that Darya is going to love her big brothers!!
Thank you again everyone for your kindness, support, love, and prayers! We are so thankful for all of you. This is such an amazing journey that the Lord has brought us on. We love reading all your comments and are encouraged by them :-)
