Chavdar has been great...he has made sure we had opportunities for sightseeing and tasting different Bulgarian foods. We have enjoyed experiencing Bulgaria's beauty and culture. It is evident, however, as we have driven through these Bulgarian towns and villages, that we take much for granted in our beautiful America. How do we become so complacent? How do we become so ungrateful? We can never imagine how much we take for granted! God has truly opened our eyes. We must never cease to give thanks!
Forgive me for not posting yesterday. My heart has been broken for our sweet boy. I guess I have found it difficult to type through the tears what has been on my heart. He is so thin and his muscles are weak, but he has the smile of an angel. Many people have asked us WHY? Why, at our age, have we decided to embark on this journey. Well, now I can tell them....No, I can show them. You see this sweet child, one who against so many odds, has been quite a little survivor and he ask for nothing...not even a toy, but somehow, his eyes cry out for someone to just love him. He has refused our gifts of toys...he just pushes them away, but when we hold him close and tight, he melts into us. His body is so small and frail, but his determination is strong. As I held him close today, I whispered to him...Mommy and Daddy are coming for you sweet boy...stay strong, it won't be long.
The smile of an angel!!
