At least this really tickled me if no one else. The phone rang this afternoon. When I answered, this was the real conversation that took place.
I answered, "Hello?" The lady's voice on the other end politely asked, "Is Robert there?" I said, "Uh, yes." Then, the lady said, "May I speak to him?" So I said, "Yes, but may I ask who is calling?" Her response was, "This is X from X Family Dental, calling to confirm his appointment for tomorrow." I chuckled and said, "Oh! You do realize he's like six years old." Then she replied, "Actually, our records say he is seven."
I thought about asking her if she wanted to speak to Jack too, but went ahead and just confirmed our two appointments.
My Mother's Day was filled with small town fun. We rode our bikes to the local tennis court. It was Jack and Charlie's first time playing. They both did great. Then we rode to Casey's Gas Station for Icees. No photos taken but lots of happy memories.
I also read this GOOD THINGS post by another New Day family on Mothers' Day. If you have time, it is an AMAZING story. God truly will reveal His heart when we blindly follow.
Oh, and one other thing...I found this in Rob's backpack, last night. Even if he had no intentions of giving to me, it still made my day complete.
A team of doctors and an occupational therapist just finished a visit to Will's orphanage. They have blogged many positive things about the Baotou City SWI. Although it wasn't exactly stated in Will's papers I am guessing he too was cared for by Chinacare in Beijing. This little trip and their blog pictures have given us a lot of peace as we wait, knowing Will's being well taken care of. Click here to see the ASIA trip pictures. Will is not in them, but we are fairly certain he's at this orphanage.
