Day 7 UOO Dec '07 Hosting Trip - Leaving us

Day Seven

The kids and their accompanying chaperones/translators were packed and ready to go. There was a very tearful goodbye at DIA with lots of hugs and promises to write. By 1:00 pm they were gone, but definitely not forgotten!

No pictures because we were all crying and not in the happiest of moods. Zina held onto Heidi and cried awhile. She then came to me (Felix) and buried her head in my shoulder. We stayed like that for at least 20 minutes, both crying. I could feel her tummy trembling against me and she was inconsolable. All I could do was to remind her that we wil do all we can to get her registered so that we or another family could adopt her.
