We drove out to see our kiddos again. One of these days, I need to devote an entire post just to the traffic and sites along the road here. They never fail to fascinate me.
Our little guy was upset to be left with us again, but there were more moments when he wasn't crying and then both children fell asleep and slept on us for quite a while. He really does like to be held when he's scared, so we've got that going in our favor. Toward the end of our visit, he started playing a game of putting his hand in Paul's palm and we even got a little glimpse of a smile. Slowly but surely we'll make progress.
In the meantime, we both have terrible jet-lag. I don't remember it being nearly this bad the last time we came to Ethiopia. It may be due to our terrible sleep in the weeks leading up to this trip, but we're completely zonked. We decided to take a short nap at 1:00 p.m. and woke up seven hours later! The plan right now is to take some Unisom and try to sleep through to the morning. I hope that sets us on the right track!
We have court tomorrow morning and are desperately hoping to find that our MOWA letter granting us custody of the children is there. Please keep us in your thoughts!
