Day 4

Wow!!  Is it Thursday already????  I can't believe we only have one more visit with our sweet girl.  We have truly had a wonderful bonding experience with Avery.  We are going to miss her so much!  Now the waiting will be even more difficult.  We went for a short walk in the village with the Babas and some of the children in Avery's groupa.  It was so much fun.  We stopped to see a stork in its nest and we watched the goats as they were herded to a nearby field.  Avery walked a lot today and was very tired when we got back to the orphanage.  We were invited to a celebration for a child in the orphanage who took his first steps.  It was fun to watch the children dancing and celebrating.  Avery loved the music and she loves to dance.  We will have a short visit tomorrow morning.  They have allowed us to bring a cake and have a birthday party for Avery and the Rhodes' son, Joseph.  They will both have birthdays this weekend.  I am so glad we are here to celebrate with them. 

Here are a few pictures of our visit today....enjoy...

Isn't she the tiniest little thing???  She is just precious!
She will be 5 on Sunday!

I will post pics tomorrow of the birthday party....stay tuned!!    :)


  1. I can't get over how tiny she is! So sweet!

  2. She is beautiful! Our tiny Keith just turned 5 this past Sunday, so they are just a week apart in age. :) So glad you get to celebrate with her and Joseph!

  3. She is so adorable! I'm so glad to hear that your visit is going well. I'll pray for your heart when you have to say good-bye.
