Lee, Amy, Lilia and Kaiser

Ethiopia Day 2

We had a pretty irritating beginning to the day. We found out that they got Kaiser's passport, and the Ethiopian people had put the wrong birth date on it. So the agency asked if they could expedite it and get a new one by tomorrow so we can submit our paperwork. They said they are too busy and could do it by Friday. Which doesn't help us out a lot because we can only be submitted on Wednesdays. Our coordinator said she is going to talk to the embassy and see if we can submit tomorrow without it and just use his birth certificate as a form of identity. She said it is unlikely they will accept it, but she will try. Needless to say, we are bummed out. I just don't know whether to stay here or go home. I can't imagine leaving the little guy again. But I can't leave my daughter for months on end either. We just keep praying for the paperwork and for God to give me a little clarity on what I should do.

As for the buddy boy, he is a little cutie. He is smiling a lot, and he actually belly laughed today! Lilia likes him and she can get him to smile a lot by playing peek-a-boo. He seems to like us! We spent the afternoon with him playing and feeding him. Tomorrow the rest of the families are going to the embassy and we are going to spend the whole day with him. They have a little playground for Lilia to play on so she is having a lot of fun. I asked her today what she thought of Ethiopia and she said "it is really cool!" She is having a good time and is doing well despite the jet lag and tiredness. Except that she woke up at 2:45 am and was wide awake!!

Kaiser rolled over today! It was cute. He is trying to get up on his hands and knees but couldn't crawl yet. We doesn't have any teeth yet. Which I am glad about because there is something I didn't miss! Toothless little grin!
