It is the wee hours of the morning, and once again I am wide awake. Thankfully, MyLinh has been sleeping hard, crying out only a couple of times. Our quiet minutes of play last night showed us that she knew how to stack blocks, play peek-a-boo, and mimic faces! Alex is such a good daddy, and he really was able to draw her out. I still don't know what it was that finally clicked for her, as her crying was unabated until then!
The orphanage staff were amazing...truly loving the children. It was incredible to see this tiny little place with such amazing women and beautiful children. At the Giving and Receiving Ceremony, the Director (government official) said, "Please come back again and bring another baby home!" I am surprised by this sort of reception. We even had people stop us on the street (we spent a lot of time walking through the tears) saying, "Vietnam baby?" and smile.
I am going to try to close my eyes for a few more minutes before we have to ready for the day.
