We didn't get to go see Anastasia until the end of the day, not sure why it is that way, but we didn't ask to many questions. We had another good visit, the social worker came in and watched us with her. We were in a different room, which is where I think they have P.E. They had her dressed up in blue today complete with the big bows! Her hair was in pigtails, I think it is pretty long. Here are some pictures from our visit. This afternoon we have our last visit with her....I already know it is going to be a tough one for me....very hard to leave once you have gotten to hold and love on her. Wish we could bring her back now!
She loved trying to play with these hoops, they weren't hula hoops,
but she liked playing with them
We brought a massage therapy brush, b/c I wanted to see if she had any sensory issues with it. She doesn't it.....she loves to carry it around and brushes everyone in the room.
These next couple of pictures are in her room (her groupa). We did not get to stay long in there. Only long enough to take a picture of her bed and then they said it was time to leave.
Korina, our translator, helps us do anything we need to do. No one speaks english. I wasn't ready for this. I thought some people would speak English, but they don't....so, without Korina, we would be lost. One day Korina took us out to find some souvenirs; we went to a clothes market....next to the clothes market was an open air meat market....this is not for those of you with weak stomachs.....it was amazing the stuff they had there. The answer to your question is "NO, we did not buy anything." But there were tongues, and rabbits (with their legs still on)...quite an eye opener from a girl from Arkansas.
This is for Avery and Mary Claire; this is a lego man that we saw in the Moscow airport!
This is a picture of a Kentucky Fried Chicken...this is the ONLY American fast food restuarant the we have seen....No McDonald's. Yes, we have eaten at KFC.
Thanks for keeping up with us and for praying for us!
