Got to see our boy!!!!

We finally got to see N this afternoon. We could really tell that he still isn't feeling well. He was pretty lethargic with a bad cough and a runny nose. He was really excited to see us but he was far from his usual hyped-up self. We took him to a sitting room in another wing of the orphanage. Denise had suggested just before we left the hotel that we take the computer and watch some cartoons with him. Good call for a couple of reasons. 1) It was good for him to sit and be quiet since he is still pretty sick. 2) Tom and Jerry need little translation. It was great for the 4 of us to pile up on the couch and watch some cartoons! I am really looking forward to more of that in the future!

We also took him a little F1 race car as a present. Even that didn't get too much of a reaction, so I know he was feeling pretty weak. He loved it, but his enthusiasm was limited to a big grin and pushing the button to hear the engine noise about a million times. Before I get any notes from my friends...an F1 car would not have been my first choice, but they are a little thin in the NASCAR department around these parts. Not to worry, we'll have him watching the good 'ole boys goin' in circles in no time!

Well, that's about it for today. I've got to run. It looks like the ski jumping competition is getting good on Eurosport. Arrgh, we've got to get home soon. I need a real sport fix :)!

We're praying for just one more day of waiting...

Have a great day of worship tomorrow!
