|Leaving hotel, ready for court.|
Victoria is not allowed to stay with us during the 10 day wait. This was disappointing, but I knew that would be the case due to another family adopting from the same orphanage and receiving that news the day before. We were brought back to the hotel after court and told we would be picked up at 3:00 pm to visit Victoria. We went with the other family that was also not able to have their child with them during the 10 day wait. They have adopted a little boy the same age as Victoria. He is in the same group as she is. We had a very fun time today with both children. The children were comfortable with each other and we had times where we enjoyed our own individual child, but also played as a group. The children really loved all of the attention. Babies were sleeping in the other room and we were told we had to quiet down. That was hard! We really had so much fun! The little boy was kissing on my daughter and she is also a little flirt! The play was so wild that the other mom and I had broke out in a sweat and decided we were exhausted by the time the two hour visit was over! It was another great visit! We will visit again on Monday, as the orphanage does not allow anyone on the weekends!
