No hair

Well, we got a call from a very cute little boy with no hair. The orphanage sent out an email this afternoon to let everyone know that they probably wouldn't be able to make phone calls this week because of the clouds. When there is too much cloud cover they don't get very good reception on their satellite. But I was really hoping for a chance to see my little man, and they said they were going to try a few calls, so I logged on and set up my webcam and speakers. I forgot to turn the volume on, so I missed the call but they left a voicemail and the box popped up on my screen. I was looking something up for my mother, so I saw the box and switched gears to call them back. We called back and they answered right away. Michael has no hair. He got a haircut this week and they shaved his little head. At least that way it will keep him cool and it will last longer. Even without hair, he is so very cute. They had one of the bigger girls holding him in her lap today and she helped to encourage him to talk and interact with us. She got him to say "love", "dada", and "bye-bye". She also got him to wave to us. I woke Matthew and ALisha up so they got a chance to see him. Matthew does not wake up very fast, so he just stared at his brother. Alisha on the other hand, wakes up quickly and talked to her brother. I am so glad that the orphanage allows us to see and talk to him. I can't wait for him to be home. Please pray with us that he will make it home for Christmas.
