Okay then, I know I have been slack in uploading pictures, so this post will be an attempt to remedy this!
There is no news on the adoption progress. We are still waiting on Mongolian INS to meet and give their final decision. There is at least one other [Italian] family who is also waiting.
It looks like moving into an apartment was a 'Good Thing'. The teacher(s) at the orphanage tried to have us take Badaruugan out to the playground by ourselves yesterday. This would have allowed us to have some one-on-one time with him and also cause less interference with the other children. He was all into it while getting on his jacket and boots. Once he realized he was going alone with us....let's just say we stayed inside :-(
We knew that it might be a difficult transition, and this pretty much confirms that. We are sure that he will adjust well, but it will certainly be a process. Prayers, love, and prayers!!!
This is a mix of pictures that are mostly from either the orphanage, or from the Museum of Natural History. For the pictures with children, Badaruugan is wearing either a red shirt with yellow collar, or a blue plaid shirt. I won't generally be providing comments on these pictures as there are so many; however, please feel free to ask if you have any questions as to what might be showing and we will be more than happy to explain!
Prayers are definitely desired regarding an expedited process!
