day 5 - - the first 24 hours

Hello,

First of all, we would like to thank all of you who have followed us so far. The pictures were taken by one of the other families with us. Thanks to them, and their thoughtfulness.

Chloe had a nice evening with the other family ( as did Mom and Dad). She went to sleep at 7 PM, got some formula at 4 AM, and finally woke up at 6 or 7. She is eating well, and sleeping great.
Her schedule is off, though, so we are having some problems with naptime this afternoon.

We all went for lunch at a restaurant on the river. It is cooler today.


Tomorrow, we leave for Hanoi at 11:30 AM. This is our final destination, because it is where the U.S. Embassy is. Everything is on schedule for now.

We made it through the first 24 hours, which they say are the hardest. A few smiles today, more vocal, and atttaching nicely. In fact, she likes close contact all the time. She holds on tight most times. Oh, and she got her first bath today! I guess with a busy day like this, she would be a little grumpy in the afternoon.

Sarah & Les,

God is great! I'll be praying for your safe return to the States. In the mean time, give Chloe a kiss for me. I can't wait to hear all about her as you get to know her more.

Blessings!
Steve, Kristen, & Jonathan
