Getting Settled In

Monday October 18 – Wednesday October 20, 2010

We were getting to know the children during our first full days at the clinic. Lisa and I kept getting the twins Roxana & Andreea mixed up. The twins love to be held but are learning to walk pretty well. If you keep at them, they will. Daria is so cute with her brown eyes and big smile. She loves to be bounced and she loves to pull your hair. Alina loves to hit everyone but she is very smart. Loves to sing with Lisa.

Gabriela has a beautiful smile, is quiet and sneaks up behind you. Ionutz is an adorable little boy. He smiles when you rub his stomach and he rolls back and forth with his hands up like he is dancing to music. He can entertain himself pretty well. Cristi is also good at entertaining himself. He makes funny faces and can sit in many poses, almost like yoga. He loves to climb over you and has a great smile. I have found in the first couple of days that they are very loving children and it’s wonderful being around them.

We met Dr. Delia, a very delightful person and a great doctor. It’s hard to believe that she does everything by herself. We got a tour of the hospital and got to see everything that Global Volunteers has done.
