Sara picked me up from the airport, and we talked all the way here. I had barely gotten my bags inside when Sara yelled inside and said, Henri is here he wants to see you! It was one of my kindergarteners, the one who told me every day in class, "I missed you!" And then Joseph showed up and gave me a hug, and then Wendy (who actually smiled at me!) and of course, Eric! They all dragged me to the houses where I visited a lot of the kids for a couple hrs. It was so great... I loved it.
For dinner, I joined Sara and a group of guests and we went out to get barbecue. So delicious. I have definitely missed the burning taste of spicy food that "hurts so good." Can't wait for a whole month of that.
And now I'm sitting in Sara's apartment, trying not to fall asleep. It's only 8:30pm but, I've had barely any sleep the last 48hrs. Hopefully that means I'll sleep through the night tonight and wake up refreshed and ready for a full day.
Tomorrow we are taking Joseph out for his birthday -- he will be turning 13 on May 8th. Please be asking for a family for him as he gets closer and closer to the adoption cutoff age...
More to come soon!
