A Home for Everyone {Thursday}

This is the first day we slept till a decent hour which means we were running just ahead of late for our first appointment of the day. 

After a quick breakfast at McDonald's, we loaded the bus to Ilsan, Holt's group home/community.  

It was really amazing to see how Holt creates a family when the traditional sense of the word isn't an option.  This sweet guy wanted a photo with J and I.  He assisted with physical therapy sessions and seemed very kind and gentle with the patients we saw him work with. 

(I have a lot more photos from today...and the other days for that matter, but I'm having a computer charger issue and I'm not sure I'll get 'big girl camera' pictures on the blog till after we're back home.  So for now, bare with the bad blog format and all my iPhone pics.  I want these memories down before jetlag erases them for me.)

One thing that was super special to me was that Bertha holts head stone reads about the proverbs 31 woman and has Ruby's life verse on it.  And for those that don't really know our back story, it's Miss Ruby that led us to her big brother first.  We can't wait to find her one day and tell her the way God has already used her to bless so many...maybe even before she was born.  I digress...

After Ilsan we hit up lunch. 

Played with the cutest puppy ever in this animal clinic...

And got an email from Dylan saying he had more pictures ready!!!

Can't wait for you to see his beauuoful face!

After resting and freshening up, we headed to a Doosan Bears baseball game where we were offered 'traditional game food'...

And took photos of the past Olympic Rings.

And then skidaddled out at 6th inning to make sure we had enough rest for COURT tomorrow!!!

Can't wait to tell that judge we will love Jack Cruz JiHwan FOREVER.
