In the meantime we will visit him at the orphanage every day, and jump through all the hoops they want us to jump through to get this deserving boy home into our family.
He is fascinated with the camera case. He tries to zip and unzip it, and checks inside. Today he put the strap over his shoulder and started heading to the orphanage gate. He kept turning around and motioning for me to "Come" with him. As if to say, "Come on-Let's blow this joint!"
I followed him, snapping photos of him. Surely the gate to the orphanage would be locked, right? Wrong. Somehow he managed to open the latch and run out, and before I could stop him he had escaped! Man, I don't think I've ever run so fast!
I used to lie in bed at night imagining what it would be like to hold him and rock him to sleep. Now I lie in bed imagining how I'm going to catch him if he runs off in the airport on our way home! Yikes.
