Our next awesome stop was a monkey haven at a resort. We bought bananas along the road and were able to feed the wild monkeys from our hands. I did slightly consider the rabies risk, but dismissed it because the whole experience was super cool!
The high-light of the day was our visit to Brooke's orphanage. We did not realize that she was never told that we were adopting her. She knew that she had adoption paperwork in the works, but was never told for sure that it was us. Since we assumed that she knew we were adopting her, we began our conversation without clarifying that information. At one point she started to cry; since our translator had taken a phone call, it was a little while before we found out that she was crying from the happiness of understanding that we were coming back for her. She was extremely excited about the gifts we brought her and profusely thanked us. We learned a lot more about her - all good things including being able to see pictures of her mom that passed away and her as a little girl. The adoption agency is allowing her to come back to the transition home with us tomorrow to say good-bye to Bella and have a bit more time with us.
Brooke is in the red shirt, since we are not allowed to show her face before court.
