We had to be in our lobby at 7am to head over to the Medical Clinic since Theodore had to be checked again to see if he was any better from Saturday’s appointment. We couldn’t go get his Visa until he was approved at Medical first. This was only a tiny bit nerve wracking.
This is a nurse blowing Theodore kisses as she tries to get him to stop crying. It worked for a few seconds at a time. We have been given melon on a stick, candy, yogurt drinks, candy, stuffed animals, candy, balloons, candy, toys, candy, cookies, fruit I do not know the name of, and did I mention candy from the Chinese people to help stop him from crying since our first day with this love.
Above are some new friends we met that had the same consulate appointment as we did. These are their 3rd and 4th adopted kids and they are from Houston, TX.
We had to turn in all of our personal items at this point before walking in through security. We were led upstairs and took a number. We showed paperwork and then took an oath with an American man that works in China for the U.S. Consulate. We promised our life away and left with the final step of making Theodore ours. It was also another step to getting him a passport so he can get into the U.S. with us.
Woo hoo!! 💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻
We haven’t been able to eat out since Theo cries too much, but we bring it to room and that usually works better.
You can trust us Theodore. We are here to STAY. FOREVER.
And you won’t believe the siblings waiting for you at home.
Not to mention the family and friends that already love you and also raised a lot of money to get you home.
***************************At this point we decided to get brave and send Theodore WITH Blake and WITHOUT ME to the park.
Plus, I got to read a little which was a blessing for me!
Theodore hasn’t wanted to drink hardly at all, but he has taken to freshly squeezed juice. Go figure- the boy sure has good taste. I’ll need to get our juicer cranking when we get home.
Let’s call it a wrap!
22 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; 23 they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
