Day 3 Plans

7 Mar

Today is our 3rd day with our Malachi. We will be heading to the orphanage to see where he’s been living the last 6 years of his life. We will get to meet his nannies that have cared for him and loved him. We also have a few more questions so it is nice we will get to ask in person. Malachi will also get to say his goodbyes. It may be an emotional day for him. The guide will also take us to his “finding spot” where he was left almost 6 years ago to the date. He was estimated to be about 7 months old and he did have a note with him. We are waiting for our guide to translate the note for us. The guide will speak in English so he won’t know why we are there but I will be able to fill in some of his story when he is old enough and asking questions. A story of God’s amazing providence. His middle name will be Joseph so we can tell him the amazing story of Joseph in the Bible and how God makes something that seems so horrible such a beautiful story. God has had a plan for Malachi’s life from before he was ever born. We are blessed to be his parents and see God glorified through it.

Malachi still sleeps with a diaper. Since he was still in a crib type bed he couldn’t get up to use the restroom. Last night he had an explosive dirty diaper. This was our first experience as parents with such a mess. Josiah hasn’t had one yet. I almost threw up getting him cleaned up. Kevan watched from afar and kept telling me how much he loved me and what a great mom I was. Haha!!! 😂😂😂 He also “assumed the position” for me to clean him up. It was quite funny but I may have lost my appetite for breakfast.

We will be leaving soon. Here are a few pictures from breakfast. This boy can eat! Between him and Josiah, Kev and I will be broke when they become teenagers. Lol
