While Matt and Elizabeth were at breakfast this morning, I Skyped with Matthew and my dad.  I miss them so much!  After a kind of rushed breakfast, we went with the group for the kids medical exams. No big deal, but of course Thomas didn't like his PPD test.  Please pray that it is negative!

It made me so happy to see so many little ones with new families.  My heart is so broken for what so many children suffer because they don't have a family.  Thomas is doing so well, but when he smacks his head repeatedly,  or can't fall asleep in his mother's arms, it is just a reminder that all isn't right with the world.

We walked around Shaiman Island briefly, and went into Jordan's for a minute, and ate at Lucy's (just a snack).  Good fries, good spring rolls.  I can't wait to go back to do some real shopping!

On the way back to the hotel, we stopped at a Carrefore (grocery) to get diapers and formula and snacks.  We are trying the steak and chicken chips, and green tea Pocky.  Very fun.  We need to test out which are the best snacks to take home to Matthew.  We also picked up a stroller- our backs are killing us.  We found out at the medical exam that Thomas weighs 23.5 pounds.  

We have a little paperwork tonight, and then rest.  The girls have been so good on the trip, but they are starting to get on each other's nerves (and on ours a little...).  Please pray that God would give us all patience.  :)
