We're heading home!!!! If all goes according to plan -- and I have no reason to believe it will, after everything we've been through this week -- we'll be home at 9 am on Sat. At breakfast this morning, we estimated that we've spent 22 hours in government waiting rooms in the last week, not to mention the 4 days sitting in our hospital room without moving. The upcoming day is going to be interesting, as we travel through 4 airports with 4 suitcases, 3 carry-on bags, and a baby. Packing our carry ons to make sure we have enough baby supplies for the trip is a challenge; since we've never done this before.
I have a very long post about our experience at the FRRO, but I'll wait to post it until we're home. In the mean time, I leave you with this picture of Micah's friends here at the VITS hotel. They have been very very interested in him, because in India, its customary that a baby doesn't leave the house for the first 45 days of its life, so the idea of a infant in a restaurant is quite the novelty. I think the VITS staff better get used to seeing it though; there's a lot of surrogacy babies in the pipeline!
