Started off the post with pictures. The first picture is of our time at the registration office shortly after we met, the second is back in the hotel and the third is M and E at the airport before I took off.
Today has been a long emotional day. We had trouble sleeping last night so we have pretty much been up since 1am with a little nap in the wee morning. At the CAB or registration office their were 40 families there and it was crazy and emotional. Children crying everywhere. Sophia was on major overload so we got out of there as quickly as possible. She hadn't eaten for 7 hours or so we were told so she was starved and grieving. By the time my mom and Grace ran into the Carrefour and got some formula S and I had begun to get to know each other and she no longer wants anything to do with anyone else.
Her cry is very heart breaking and it took quite a while to get her down tonight. You could tell she was absolutely exhausted but couldn't get to sleep. She is finally down and I am exhausted too. I am so tired I can't really articulate how the day went. I hope to be more coherant tomorrow after our final appointment at the CAB.
