he is SO SO good-- he woke up Aser and I this morning cooing and
smiling:) What a treasure! I was very tired, but somehow it did not
matter:) We were up late as Anna has food poisoning... we let her eat
some soup and are pretty sure that is where it came from:( Poor girl!
I think we have had enough sick kids for awhile now -- God is good and
she is up and around today.
Yesterday as they removed Malachi's card from the orphanage check-in
roster I just cried. Tears of joy that he is ours, tears of pain
thinking of his parents and the fact that he will not know them, and
tears for the nannies who were so attached to him. It was very
emotional and full of joy at the same time. Aser's mom had a Welcome
Home cake for him so we had a party after--that was very special to us
to have both grandmas here. They gave us his complete medical file. He
has been on antibiotics pretty much every two weeks for resp.
problems:( I am anxious to get that sorted out. He is so happy despite
not feeling well. He eats well--
Last night we met up with Porter, another American adopting, for
dinner. She is adopting from Toukoul as well. It was very nice to
finally meet her as we have been corresponding for several months now.
She is actually here traveling with her best friend from Oregon.
The kids are sad this is our last full day here. It has flown , but I
am anxious to start life now! I am looking forward to pushing him in a
stroller, feeding him in a highchair and introducing him to cheerios
and just getting into our groove. The kids have been WONDERFUL with him
and they are so patient as ASer and I figure this out.
Thank you for your prayers-- Kimberly
