Pictures and Prayer Requests

Since this is our last night in the capital city, and the anticipation of tomorrow is keeping me from sleeping, I thought that I'd post a few pictures.

This is the baby eating bread.  His favorite food here, by far. 

And this is his favorite seat in the apartment.  Behind him is a door that goes in to a small enclosed patio type thing.  You have to step over that little step thing he is sitting on.  He loves to get a piece of bread and go sit on the little step.

That is the heater.  Inspite of the fact that it is real cold outside, the heaters keep it warm in here.  There is no central air or heat, so I have no clue how those heaters keep the whole apartment so warm.  It is a mystery to me.  They are really warm to the touch(like the warm pipe in the bathroom), but not so hot that they would burn you.

The next 3 pictures are the view of the courtyard behind our apartment at night.  It isn't anything fancy or special, I just like how it looks at night.
I'm going to try to get some sleep now.  We have to get up in 5 hours!  Next time I post we should have met Daniel and Josslyn!  I can't believe it is finally here!

A few prayer requests for tomorrow:
1. That Kellen will sleep good on the train, so he won't be tired and grouchy the rest of the day.
2.  That Kellen is cooperative when we meet with the social worker, orphanage director and doctor.  We will hopefully be getting a lot of information, so I am going to need to be taking fast and furious notes.  That will be super difficult if Kellen is crying or being uncooperative.
3.  Pray for Luke and my sister.  I got word that Luke is sick.  This is very unexpected because Luke never gets sick.  I don't know if it is strep throat or what, but pray he has a quick recovery and pray that my sister can handle her four kids, Raylen, and a sick Luke all at the same time....while trying to homeschool.
4.Pray we have good internet connection at our new apartment.  I will be dying to post pictures from us meeting the kids, and I'll be super disappointed if we don't have internet.  Plus I will be worried if I can't check and have updates about Luke.

That's all for tonight!
