Vito had a birthday last week so I surprised him with drawings from the girls. The foster father was kind enough to scan the drawings so I could print them for him! He said it was his best gift-and I believe him. I also bought him a gift from the girls. Princess camping chairs.....I know he would rather have a boat....but for now the chairs will have to do. (maybe next year for the boat)
We are still able to Skype with the girls every Sunday, which we look forward to each week. This week they showed us framed pictures of us with them. They were so excited shoving them in the camera. We also watched the foster mother carry the younger one to bed as she cried for us :( It breaks our heart. We do our best to let them know that it is all going to work out....that it just takes time. We are certain of this, so we pray for the family and the girls that they may have peace right now as we wait to go to Poland.
Before beginning this process we were given some advice. We were told that is it not for the "faint at heart" boy is that true. We were also told we needed to be flexible, give up a lot of control and except the unexpected. It all makes sense to us now!
