I told Max, it seems like just yesterday we took the exact same picture as we drove up to meet him for the very first time.
Mae Sim was the head of House 7 when Max was there (the house where Max lived when he was 3). She and Max were very close and Max remembers her very well.
The sweet nanny who cared for Max in the clinic after his cleft surgery. She told us a great story about Max sneaking a bottle of milk he wasn't supposed to have after the procedure :)
Max's favorite teacher, Kru Tong (he taught Max preschool).
Sweet Phanu, the little boy Lek now takes care of.
Of course Max found a way to fit some baseball in!
After our visit we made our way to Pattaya and we are now in the same city as Ellie! At 10am tomorrow morning, the orphanage director will be here to come pick us up and take us to meet her. I can't believe I will finally see her face to face! Tonight it was the strangest feeling packing the bag with her things, surreal almost. Those of you that have been journeying with us since our trip to bring Max home might remember the picture I posted of the toothbrushes. Well...tonight it happened again :)
I get a little teary eyed at the site of four toothbrushes (including one very cute pink one!) sitting together on the counter! Stephen and I have been blessed beyond what he have ever thought to ask for. Our God is so good!!!
Ellie will stay one more night at the orphanage tomorrow, but I will post picture tomorrow of our day spent together!!
