I know, I know, there are probably many of you wondering if we were lost in Europe or something since I haven't posted. Well, actually we were lost in Europe for a few hours!! :) Our flight was late getting to Rome so we missed our flight to Sofia. Soooo, we had to be rerouted to Munich and then on to Sofia. We arrived 9 hours later than our original arrival time. Needless to say, we were quite exhausted!
Yesterday, we got up at 6 and left at 8 to drive to Avery's orphanage. We picked her up and then because of snow here over the weekend, we had to take the long way to Caden's orphanage. It was late when we arrived (after about 8 hours of driving) so we spent the night and picked up Caden this morning. We headed back to Sofia straight to the passport office to have their pictures done for their passports. It has been quite a whirlwind since we left Roanoke on Monday.
Caden and Avery are settling in. We are spending time playing and sharing lots of hugs and kisses.
Avery was a little out of sorts yesterday and refused to sleep. We finally got her to sleep by about 10:30 last night. Caden would not eat or drink all day. We are already worried because of the extreme state of malnutrition he is in, but finally, at dinner, he ate some rice and a banana. I gave him some milk a little while ago and he did drink a couple of ounces. Yay! I put them down at 8:15 so finally I can give you all an update! Whew, I had almost forgotten how busy a baby can be. Even though they are 5 and 3, they are very much like babies. We are so thrilled and feel so blessed.
Seth (my 13 year old) made the trip with us. He has been great and is so excited about his new brother and sister. We haven't taken as many pictures as I thought we would but we did do GOTCHA DAY videos. I am including some of the pictures with this post....I know that is what you really want to see anyway!! Sorry for all the rambling....enjoy the pics.
