After Namdaemun we headed back to get ready for our visit with Owen. I do have to say that I am so proud of how well we've done with the subway this time. It was so confusing last time but we have rocked it this time! :)
We walked over to SWS around 1 and our little guy was waiting for us. They took us into the playroom and we were able to spend about an hour with him. The foster mom stayed with us for part of the time then she snuck out to give us time alone with him. He is such a fun, happy little guy! He has the most contagious little laugh. He LOVED knocking over block towers and would just cackle when they would fall. He also thought the huge stuffed bear in the room was hilarious too! He is definitely a fan of a stuffed animal-which is the exact opposite of his big brother! He is one busy little guy and was into everything! He is a quick mover and is going to keep us on our toes! When the foster mom left, he started to whine when he realized she was gone but he let us comfort him. He never got really upset but would cry and whimper some. We did get some really sweet snuggles during that time. After a little bit he seemed to be getting tired and started to get fussy. We would distract him and then he would start again. His foster mother came back in and he calmed down and went straight to her. He is very attached to her but we are so glad that he is. You can tell he loves her dearly and she feels the same way. We then chased him around most of the SWS office because he was done with the playroom but he continued to just not be happy and you could tell he was ready for a nap. Right at 2 the foster mom slung him on her back, wrapped him in the carrier, and he waved goodbye to us. It was hard to tell him goodbye but I told him we would be back very soon. He is such a sweetheart and I contemplated just putting him in a suitcase and bringing him home but I figured that would probably not be wise. ;)
After they left we found out a few details of how to prepare for court tomorrow and then we also found out that there should be no birth mother issue after the court date. We should be able to return for him in about a month! That was a relief!
After our visit we met up with our friends Dan and Judy and took off for some fun! We headed to Dongdaemun Market and toy alley! It was definitely a toy paradise. I would never be able to get Lukas out of there! We walked around the market for awhile then headed to find something to eat. We found an Outback and that just sound really yummy to all of us so we ate there. Dan and Judy have been such a blessing to us on our trip. The Lord could not have picked a more perfect family for us to be here with. We have so much in common and I believe we have made some lifetime friends.
After eating we just walked and walked and walked and walked! It was dark and everything was lit up and we just enjoyed walking and looking at everything. We walked a long ways and I really don't know where we ended up but we found a subway station, hopped on, and headed back to our area. We had lots of laughs tonight and it was just so much fun! We're planning one more afternoon/night on the town tomorrow night before we leave on Saturday.
I can't believe tomorrow is our last day here! I'm so ready to see my Lukas but sad to leave this beautiful city that we love so much and even more sad to leave sweet Owen here. But thankful that it shouldn't be long before we can come back and take him home!
