Thank you everyone for your prayers! On Saturday I was able to start antibiotics, and by yesterday afternoon was feeling much better. I went back to the orphanage to see Asher for a short visit. His caregiver said he had missed me on Saturday when I didn't visit. We had fun last night and Asher blessed me with several smiles.

This morning he was ready to see me. When I arrived at the door of his room he was laying on a bed facing away from the door, dangling a stuffed animal off the edge. His caregiver said in Serbian, "Lazar, Mamo is here." He jumped off that bed SO FAST and came running! He barely stopped for a hug, just wanted to get down that hallway to the playroom as fast as possible.

When we got to the playroom he wanted me to pick him up. I turned on some music and he just sat in my arms while we swayed with the music. It was lovely.

Next we went outside to the playground. It's beautiful here today and there were lots of kids taking their turn coming out to play. Asher wanted to go by them but he didn't really know what to do with them. It almost seemed like  he was looking for a kid he knew but didn't' see anyone.

When our time for the morning was done I walked him back to his room the caregiver had to carry him in as he did NOT want to go back. Usually I can stand outside the glass and watch him for a few minutes and all is well. Not today. Today if he saw me he wanted to be with me.

Soon son. Soon you'll leave with me.


  1. Well, while it's sad that he feels sad when you leave, it's a really good sign that he's bonding to you. So, yay you! You are such a good Mommy. How thrilled he will be when he finally realizes that he gets to be with you permanently. Oh and how great it will be to see him settle in to his new home. I'm so excited for you. Can't wait to meet him!!

  2. Congratulations! I am so happy for you. Can you tell me where to find the post you put up about Serbian adoptions, how it's all independent and no state employee can accept money etc? Was it in your blog or a FB post? thanks so much and Congrats again!
