Saturday, I Sharon, made the mistake of putting the boys up to sit on my shoulders- one at a time of course. But my neck is not as strong as it once was. So now I am struggling with significant neck pain that affects my sleeping and day time activities.
The visit Sunday was ok, but since the weather prohibits outside activity and the larger room was already taken there was only so much we could do in a small space with the boys. So the visit was shorter. Again hit by the question--"Are you taking us home?" Gregg is feeling the strain of the boys relating and responding more to me because of the language. And with the behavior that needs directing it just does not seem to work to use English within the orphanage setting.
It is really emotionally challenging to be where we are in this right now. Guess it will be emotionally challenging in other ways when we have them at home full time too.
