After picking-up the kids we went the Rwanda Ministry of Women and Children Affairs to pick-up the Travel Letters required for us to travel out of the country with our kids. Here is a picture with the lady named Veronique (sp?) that does all the processing of our adoption paper work here in Rwanda. We also stopped by the Immigration Office to get passport applications for the girls which we will turn in tomorrow morning.
We ate at a restaurant called Africa Bites that had a lot of traditional African food. It was outstanding (even though my Mom was very hesitant at first, she even ate some food!) This afternoon my Mom and Sister watched the girls while they took naps. Courtney and I, along with the Higgins, went to the Kigali Genocide Memorial. This was an amazing, emotional experience. My heart for this country continues to grow every day. I am so thankful that we chose to follow God's lead and adopt from Rwanda, and that was confirmed today in a major way. I'm still processing much of what I saw and experienced at the Memorial and all I'm learning about the genocide in 1994 and the events that led up to it.
Tonight we gave the girls a bath (see video below), ate dinner at this coffee place and got the girls ready for bed. (we also had a bad diaper experience... actually two of them... let's just saw neither of our beds have comforters any more.) The girls are now sleeping. They started about 18 inches apart but are now nearly sleeping in each others arms. It's super cute.
