It's snowing....it's snowing! It is supposed to be the beginning of spring here in Latvia, but this morning it is snowing. When David wakes up , I believe he will be disappointed! He said, "I not like the snow very much...it makes me slow! He is such a great kid and so very smart. He fixed the drain in the sink last night.....Mike was amazed! God is going to do great things in the life of this child.
Yesterday was a wonderful day! Our court appearance went smoothly.....although, Mike and me were very nervous. It is very informal, but for the only two Americans in the room intimidating! Still as I have said in the past...Latvian people are precious! Now, we have the next couple of weeks to bond and have visits from our social worker.
On Monday, we will make an 8 hour trip to Peter's court and to his foster home then back to Riga. He will return with us and spend the bonding time here in the city! I miss him so much and cannot wait to see that sweet face. He is such a special child with so much love to give. I cannot wait to see what God has in store for him.
Last night, we skyped with our three children at home and Davids and Kirby played video games together and talked about the game over skype. Technology is amazing and I am so thankful because it has helped with some of the homesickness. The boys are going to get along so well and really seem to have a lot in common. Wow...3 boys at home!! I am going to be very busy, but I will love every minute of it..!!
We are going to try to venture out today to find the movies. We have been told that the movie is in English with Latvian subtitles!.....Go figure?? Anyway, we have 3 weeks to tour and spend time learning the culture. It is a beautiful country with lots of history. These people have survived tragedy and oppression and I am so excited about our time here learning about my son's heritage.
I will post more later with pictures
