Rolling With The Changes

Well, we went back to the orphanage to try and get the children and take them to the G&R ceremony. However, the director wasn't successful in getting the necessary governmental official lined-up to sign the documents this late on a Friday.

We were able to play with DoriGrace for a couple more hours. She was even more interesting than this morning. She was open to us from the very beginning, but she is really starting to pay attention to us. She is very alert and is smiling. We've even heard a couple of giggles, but she is very quiet. We have yet to hear a cry.

We are not able to take DoriGrace home with us until the ceremony, and with the weekend, that means we wait until Monday. We are going back in the morning at 9:00 to spend another couple of hours and then we'll have the day free to sightsee. We plan on taking a river boat cruise down the MeKong Delta.

This doesn't put us back in HCMC until Monday evening. We'll check into the Rex Hotel and we'll begin working on a passport for our little girl.

We are struggling a little with the food. I should say, WB and I, JB eats anything. We can't wait to get back to HCMC so we can find that Pizza Hut!!!

OK...that is all for tonight. It is 6:15 pm and we are all fading fast. We're gonna order room service and turn in early.
