Alia is checking out the fish in the fountain at our hotel. Of course, she wanted the phone so she could take some pictures of the fish. We have so many pictures on our phones that we will have to delete later, but she has taken some great pictures. Usually we get about 20 pictures of the same thing.
Along our adoption journey, we have connected a number of ministries in Honduras. One of those ministries is Mi Esperanza (My Hope). We had ordered some coffee from there to support the ministry. As we went through our day, we wanted to get some coffee to take home, and our driver mentioned that his mother was a missionary with this ministry, so we took a trip there to see the work they are doing to teach women various jobs and skills, and we bought some of the items that they make there, and of course some coffee.
Tegucigalpa has a Jesus statue like the one in Brazil that stands high on the mountains surrounding the city looking at the city with his arms open wide. We went up to the statue and there was a lot of room for the children to run and play. Both of them enjoyed the swings.
We had a great view of the city of Tegucigalpa
Here we are at the base of the statue
Ashton is a great big brother. It is clear that Alia looks up to him and leans on him in many ways. She wanted to run, but I saw the stairs ahead so I had her hand and she walked with him. It is great to see the relationship that they share, and a blessing to be able to adopt both if them into our family so they can stay together.
After a full day of activity and play, Alia took a nap in the van on the way home. Ashton had fallen asleep earlier in the day, as well, but I didn't get a picture of him.
