Yesterday we had some welcome guests. Dan and Alice Crawford along with their son to be, Andreas. It was great to finally meet them and to hear some other English speaking voices. Although Andreas wanted to make sure that we knew we were in 'his country' with his own fine langauge. We couldnt understand a word he said, but who cares. He seemed to enjoy playing with some new toys and with Aleks. Until Aleks hit him in the eye with a tablemat. He was fine again though when Dan and i returned with pizza. Andreas sure liked the americana pizza and all Alices good work of keeping him to his schedule and diet was undone immediately as he feasted on pizza and pop. (Sorry Alice, just trying to Americanize him lol) We spent around 4 hours talking and time just flew by and it was soon time to get a tired Andreas home. we may get to meet up again this evening but no one was sure what was happening regarding getting Andreas back to the orphanage. Aleks sure did like having someone to play ball with, as marcus is way too small at the moment. We made sure we got some photos and agreed that it would be great if everybody was to try to get together back in the USA after all the adoptions were finalized.

Thanks again for a great evening last night. We really appreciated your company tonight, too. It is hard being here without Andreas.
