Nam Tan/Tamah Martin

Hi folks,
Well we have to say thank you for all your prayers and support. Lesa and I didn't sleep that well - no surprise there, but Joel slept like a log.

Down to breakfast and then we met Anant who took us to Khun Chintana's office. Memories of trying to find it 3 years ago came flooding back. Through the doors of DSDW and then up the stairs, turn right, and we were there again with the friendly face of Khun Chintana. We had to wait around a bit, pay a few bills, and then we were off to Pakkred Babies Home.

We passed through the gates and I was feeling sick... we then went into the meeting room and we were given some water, mangoes, luk choop, sugared egg, (sounds gross but really nice)... and then there were presents for Tamah from her volunteer visitors, Ging & Oren... and our stuff was there too. Pakkred had made up a book of pictures from when she came to the home - she has changed so much.
We got to hold her, play with her, feed her and she fell asleep when I was holding her, (and no, I wasn't preaching one of my sermons to her). 

We have all fallen head over heels in love with our daughter... Joel, Lesa and I are besotted.
We are so happy, and cannot thank you all who have supported us enough. 

We go back tomorrow at 2p.m. (7a.m. GMT)... more photos and more hugs.

Well, here's hoping that we have a better night's sleep tonight, and if you want to see our little girl walking, click on the video below.

Lots of love,

the Martins
