2 beautiful boys!

We were able to meet our two beautiful boys today!  It was a great...and tiring...couple hours!  We are going to be busy parents for the next few years.  :)

Both kids were exactly how we expected them.  They recognized us and were calling us "mommy" and "daddy".  "Z" is really picking up English, and already knows body parts and letters/numbers.  He's a parrot that will repeat anything you say.  "A" is very quiet, and he is laser accurate kicking a soccer ball.  He can hit me at over 20 feet every time.  Not bad for a 3 year old!  The orphanage was very clean and the nannies were great!  All the children were very well behaved and it was a very positive experience!  They didn't seem to have any issue with us leaving - just waved bye and ran off to play.  That's a blessing.  We are not sure if we will get to go back or not.

 If you could, please pray for sleep - I've been continuing to have a cold, and every day I get less and less sleep.  Last night was only 2 hours of sleep.  I woke up at midnight and could not get back to sleep.  It doesn't help that there are dogs outside roaming the streets that are getting in fights all night long!  I'm beat, and ready for a good solid nights sleep for a change.

When I have more time, I will post a more complete blog. Hopefully tomorrow.  We'll probably have a lot to talk about, because we get to visit the World Vision projects tomorrow.  They'll be here at 8am tomorrow (2am EST).  That will be awesome!

Thanks for tuning in!  Chad and Lora
