Well the Lord showed Himself BIG and GREAT again today! There were a lot of great things for my Precious Peruvian today! Well, we both slept late today..... so much for the schedule! But, after eating breakfast we went to have some pcitures developed for the psychologist to put in his report. We had to walk back to the Avenida Sol where we were the other day that was a little overwhelming for her. We went back there and to a camera shop that developed pictures. She wasn't too happy about going in at first, but once inside was a little better! I had to also have pics made for her Visa.... she wasn't too happy about this either, but cooperated! Then once she saw herself int he pictures on the screen to be developed, she got all ecited and started chattering and singing, she did great! Then we left, and came back to the hotel, of course we had to stop on the way for some Papa Lay --- potato chips! Well, she went right in that store and straight to the chips! She even knew exacctly which ones she wanted! Bravo!
After getting back tot he hotel and eating her chips, we went to get lunch before the psychologist came, so that we could eat it when he left. Well, here is where she REALLY gets a BRAVO! She went in the restaurant!!! She sat on the bar stool the whole time and we sang and chatted.... oh it was such a BIG deal! The ladies that work there and have graciously given me real "curb-side" service for the last week were thrilled! They couldn't believe it either! It was a BIG day for my Precious Peruvian! Bravo!
We had a great visit with the psychologist, he has been very happy to see how well things have been going.... YAY!!! He really is a great man and does well with my little one and with me! He is very laid back but also very professional and has everyone's best interests at heart! I am so thankful for the Lord paving the way for him to be our psychologist! It looks like our family placement period should end at midnight on Monday, the 18th! Bravo!
Well, after naptime today we had a little dinner and then I thought we might celebrate with a Hot Chocolate from the Chocolate store next door to the hotel! (No kidding.... a CHOCOLATE store!!) Well, we hadn't been out after dark before and this required going into antoher store/restaurant setting! Well, as chocolate is every girl's best friend.... she went in, sat there, and LOVED it! They even made her, her own little cup of hot chocolate, which she thought was the greatest things ever! She lauged and screamed with excitedment... it was a real treat for both of us! My only regreat is that I didn't get a picture of it! She was adorable! Bravo!
So after the Hot Chocolate, we came back tot he hotel, played, skyped with Grammie and watched a little video together! What a fun day! Bravo!
Tomorrow Grammie flies to Lima, please pray for her safety and for her as she travels for the first time Internationally! Grammie is really excited and so is Mamá! Please pray for my Precious Peruvian to be excited to see her too! We have been skyping to help prepare her for someone new, but sometimes it take her a little while and I want Grammie to have a great first visit with her Precious Peruvian Granddaughter! Thank you for your prayers for today! They were felt and God showed out BIG TIME again! Bravo!!!
Praise the Lord with me for continued success in the bonding process! Today she wanted to sleep with me for her naptime! That is a big deal! And, she went right to sleep too! Praise him for a great visit with the psychologist and for his approval of our time together! Praise the Lord with me for the steps that my Precious Peruvian took today in trying new things! And, I praise the Lord for your continued faithfulness in praying for us and for lifting us up daily as we continue to grow together!
Bravo & Blessings!
