Officially 10 day bonding trip has ended. One more visit to the orphanage tomorrow. This little girl hascome a long way in just ten days. Can't wait to watch her break out of the caccoon she is in. I know the butterfly is inside, despite what the staff says. Today was the hardest to leave. Something happened before she got to me today. She was sad. But provided an awesome bonding opportunity 
( even though i dont know and dont want to know). We hugged for a very long time. She held me as tight as i held her. Before i left today i left her with a whispered message. ``hold on baby girl. two more months and this will all be behind you. momma looblu vu.``

Day two

What i found out today. Noodle is not a noodle anymore. She is strong! And she has no fear. She loves to swing, loves to be held, loves to ride on shoulders, love loves loves bubbles.

Back together again

Do I really need to say anymore about this post???

Bishkek x four

Well I have officially started my fourth trip to Bishkek. After two long plane rides we arrived at the airport at o dark hundred. Our trip to the guest house was uneventful and we all got settle atd in our rooms. I have a quite cozy room seperate from the house attached to the Nelson's room. Very cute room. But I absolutely need to go to the store and get a room freshener. Smells very musty.
The Wright's came over for a visit this morning. I was so happy to see them again here in ally Bishkek. Tomorrow is a big day for the Kyrgyz 65. Supposedly one or maybe up to three families will have court!!! The first family stayed here the whole time. And they are from Belovodske. So maybe I could bank on a quick court hearing??? Would be nice to take two trips and not three. Well we are off to do some grocery shopping. I promise some really cool pictures tomorrow!!!

At least I can enter Kyrgyzstan now. Just need the agency NOT to move our dates again. Restarting our countdown to travel. 14 days. Sigh. Should have been 4.

This was the first indication I got that something was extensively wrong. Gabrielle's Facebook page let me know something had gone amiss. Quickly dialing up the phone through shaking fingers I found out that I too was singing the tune Expletive, Expletive, Expletive. Group 2 has been delayed. We are 6 days from our initial travel. And we must change plane tickets and all our arrangements with work,school, childcare, lodging. $400 plus dollars later our plane tickets are changed. But that does not mean on the back half this will backlash even further. Our second trip will now most likely be the beginning of June. Which means I will either miss my long awaited Disney vacation with my family altogether or I will arrive late with a newly adopted 5 year old. What better exposure to the reality of US life right??? AAAAAAAAAAAA
