Another Day in Kaz




Thanks for all of the name ideas. We are still in debate but will take all of them into consideration except for my brothers. (There is no prize Jason.) We went to the orphanage Wednesday and had so much fun with them. Alayna had six ponytails in her head that morning and only two in the afternoon with a fashion statement that will take Charlotte by storm. She was wearing a pink dress and orange striped socks. Nathianel's outfit speaks for itself. We played outside on what they consider a play yard with no swings. The best part of our day was when we returned Nate back to his class room and he got upset. Hooray, a breaking point. He misses his parents. Our hotel room reminds us of a college dorm. We will send photos of it and the area around us. This city is up to speed in some respects with the internet. As far as the roads these guys drive where ever as to not hit a pothole. Some roads are just dirt and dust. We met a lady here named Annie from Raliegh. She adopted a baby girl. We helped name her Lillian (Lilly). This was also a day to remember for us. Nate was sitting with his mother and blessed me with urine all down his pants and mine. Diapers are to expense for the orphange so we will be buying them some. Thanks for all the great posts back.

Congratulations Eflands. I am so glad to be a part of this announce-ment. This is the best news I've heard in a long time. It is great they are siblings for life and it's all because of their parents.
I can't wait to see them at home. Please let mom and I know when we get see those precious children. Enjoy life, don't take a day with them for granted. Love, Bev and Betty
