I should have posted this yesterday, but I was too bummed. We found out the minister is not in town....he is campaigning. It is an election year and elections are held on May 6th. So all the elected officials are doing their best to be re-elected. Because of this, we wait. We are once again praying that we get a signature on Monday.
We had an interesting happening this morning. So far, whenever we pick little brother up from his room and little ones come out looking for loving...I pick them up and give them a hug. Today, when I did this, little brother threw a fit! He was stamping his feet and grunting and giving me a look of, "How could you?" And another little girl kept slapping Vlado (not sure what that was about!) so we quickly left his floor for the 2nd floor playroom.
Both boys know that the first thing we do when we get there is have a snack, and they both were ready as soon as we got there. Little brother is still using his signs and is now saying "juice" when he wants his juice box. We are making progress but it feels like there is so little we can do with him in that environment. We are ready to take him out of there for good!
