As soon as we came in Andrew wanted David Schooler to hold him.
Matthew decided to go join Andrew!
Here was a picture of only a few of the people in the Schooler's home as we were all giving introductions of ourselves.
Andrew also wanted to give Anara a hug, but I don't think she knew what to think of Andrew. I met Anara's mom Hilary through our blogs. We started emailing before this event when we realized we were both going to be there, trying to plan the day. It was great meeting this family in person, and I hope we can spend more time with them in the future.
I took so many pictures and this was the best one. I couldn't get them all to look at the same time. Maybe someone else got a better shot!
So if that last picture wasn't hard enough we added more kids to the picture. Oh Well! This is good as it gets. There were so many of us taking pictures, you would of thought we were the paparazzi and these kids were straight out of Hollywood.
So Andrew decided if Anara wouldn't let him hug her, he would do the next best thing and have her mom hold him the same time as her. Once again Andrew, "you are a flirt"!
Here is the guys swapping orphanage pictures.
Andrew and Matthew were sure to still take some time to play cars with one another! They were so excited to see each other at this event. They both did pretty good for the day, taking in consideration their nap schedules were completely off.
Alisha was sure to bring her guitar and of course the kids loved to listen to her play and sing.
Andrew with Hilary and Ann!
Wow Andrew! You even got the older ladies wrapped around your little finger.
Alisha with my new friends Nicole and Ann. Ann is waiting to bring home her daughter and Nicole is waiting to bring home her son. I will be praying for you both that your babies will come home soon and that God will give you the peace you need through this tough time! You both were such a blessing to me!
Once again this was the best of the pictures that I took.
