So it turns out that the documents we hoped to submit last Friday can only be submitted to court on Wednesdays and Fridays. Because they didn't get submitted on Friday, our next chance is tomorrow. Sigh.

It's OK, we will make it.

Anyway, here are a couple of photos from today's visit that you might enjoy.

OMG... kid #2 from the left in the blue shorts has got to be the cutest kid ever!! Can you tuck him in your suitcase for me?? Thank you for letting us follow your journey and I am glad you got some Mexican food. We missed that a lot when we were in Russia. We taught our facilitator how to make guacamole while we were there. She loved it.

So cute. That chunky monkey in blue shorts is adorable. Zoya looks excited for them! Great pictures. It is good to see they get to have some fun in the hot weather.

Thanks for also getting photos of Charlie. I know his new mom and dad have to love it!!

Oh my goodness. Just wait until your little guy gets to actually GET IN THE POOL! You can see the joy on his face! I could squish all those babies to death they are so cute! Unbelievable that they are in an orphanage and not in homes with Mommy's and Daddy's to love on them!!!

So glad you have had some new friends who have encouraged you along your journey. Oma here, thankful for those who have invited you for dinner and made some great memories in the midst of the everlasting wait. We are fine here in Mexico and today will look for horses to be able to let the kids have a fun ride. Weather here is great and the rains in the afternoon make for great movies and popcorn inside. In fact the kids are vacuming up just as I write. They are great kids!!! Love from Oma

Okay, so the tallest boy with the skinny knees on the very end, does he have Ds? He needs a Mama and food! I'm in love with the other Ds cutie in the orange/red shorts with the hat like Joseph's. Is he listed on RR? So cute!!

Love Zoya's expression, and Joseph's too.

Why don't those two kids have hats?


...okay, I forget that not all little kids are Jewish boys. And not all little kids live in a country where going out without a hat guarantees skin cancer.

Who is the little cutie with the orange shorts and no hat? Looks like they love the water. Joseph is going to love swimming

JKI said...

Oh my word, he is so precious. He could not love that hose more. How happy he will be to have so many fun siblings and playthings back home in OK! I feel for you guys overseas. Hope you were able to acquire some more english language DVDs. We watched a whole lot of very strange Russian movies in Armenia!

my heart aches seeing those precious baby boys lined up on that bench :( The 2nd boy from the left, oh my gosh I could eat his sweet toes right up! I'm so sad for them......

Charissa said...

Thanks everyone. Of course you know Charlie has a family coming for him but I don't really know anything about the other kids other than they are super adorable and lovable. I wish I could somehow get names and try to advocate for them but we are not allowed to do that here. :(

Joseph's expressions are priceless!

Julie said...

OH MY!!! Those precious little ones! I just want to bring them all home!

Zoya looks so happy in the background of the second picture...she looks adorable. You can tell she is happy the boys are playing in the water. Hope all goes well for you tomorrow and those papers get filed! Priceless pictures. Thanks for sharing your journey with us.

I am in love with the little boy 2nd from the left. Be still my heart. What a doll! How can I get him? (not really, just my wishful thinking).

They GOT OUT THE HOSE! The pure joy on Joseph's face is priceless! We were told yesterday that our interpol was ready but they can only pick up interpol on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday so rather than getting it yesterday they would pick it up this morning before coming to get us. Isn't this absolutely crazy?!

At first glance...the pic looks like every daycare in America...with all the kids sitting together outside..enjoying a summer day. Then you realize that it isn't America..and they are orphans...they aren't going home at the end of the day when their parents get out of work. I wish I could just bring them all home with me. I'd get 10 hoses and put them in my backyard and let them all run around and play with them until their hearts content. Lots of love and prayers, your coming down the home stretch!!!
