Mom finally let Daddy hold him.

And this is where I am now. All tired out and sound asleep.
On our way to the orphanage, we stopped to get some treats for the dear people at the orphanage. Mom and Dan went in and I stayed with the car. I wish I could remember the name of our driver. He was very sweet and was our driver the whole time we were in Kolkata. While they were in the store, a woman with a very young baby came up to the car and kept knocking on the windows asking for money, gesturing that her baby needed milk. We were prepared for this, however right then it was more than I could take. I was on my way to get my baby, seeing all of the poverty that he could have been a part of. I was crying, and she was very persisitant. The driver kindly asked her to leave, but she persisited. Dan had all of our money - I had nothing that I could have given her. If I had, despite the warnings we recieved, I would have given her anything. I was able to pull myself together for the most part before we got to the chilrens' home.
I was so surprised that I didn't cry upon meeting Rup. But the home was so wonderful, and being able to go to the other building and focus on pics of the other kids was perfect. I wouldn't change anything about this day.
