When we got home we met up with one of the parents from the courtyard playground. He spoke to us our first day out with Saulius, we had run into him again outside of church, and this morning while walking back from the grocery. Russ is Lithuanian, works for the Swedish embassy, is married to a Swedish lady who works for the Danish embassy and is currently on paternity leave with his 20 month old Ludwig (who is almost as big as Saulius). This is such a wonderfully cosmopolitan city with people from everywhere! This time his wife was with him, and we chatted even more. They both speak perfect English. They are very nice, and we exchanged emails. Hopefully we'll get to socialize with them some more. Russ told me at our first meeting that it was a wonderful thing we were doing to adopt, and at our second he said that the current Swedish ambassador to Lithuania was herself adopted.
Tomorrow we have to get 4 passport photos of Saulius for his passport, visa and medical exam. We are also going to get some shopping done. Every day after that for the next 6 weekdays we have some sort of appointment or paper pushing to do. We are going to see some cousins (like 12 of them!) for dinner on friday night at La Boheme which Stasys was kind enough to organize. I am going to treat them to dinner since many are elderly and retired. We might to see mantas' family again over the weekend and hopefully will be spending our last weekend in Lithuania at the beach with his family.
