Little Guy is not feeling well. His head and chest seem very congested. The visit today started out rough. He did not want to do anything. He just cried and cried. Various caregivers came in and tried to console him. What was sweet though was that he never once tried to go with the caregiver. He stayed right by my side. About 30 minutes into the visit he fell asleep in my arms. While I wish he was feeling better, it was so precious to have him laying his head on my chest and resting his tired little body. He stayed asleep for about 40 minutes or so until I had to stand up because it was time to go. When we returned him to his caregiver he started crying again. Poor thing! We gave the blankets to the director today. She seemed appreciative of them.
From the orphanage we headed to downtown Vladivostok to go to the notary. At the notary we signed the petition that states we would officially like to adopt the Little Guy. From there, we headed back to the hotel to thaw out our feet, have a late lunch, and take a nap. Justin is not feeling well either. He is feverish. But on a happy note, we celebrated tonight by partaking in our item that we gave up. In other words, I ate chocolate! This is the first time since March 21, 2010. I had my favorite Hershey’s Raspberry Bliss chocolate and then a couple bites of a chocolate temptation dessert. Yum!
