First I want to tell you about the rest of our day. We went to KidsCare orphanage this morning. This is where Silas spent his first couple of months. He was in the 'isolation room', where all of the tiniest babies go. I saw the bed he ended up in once he got bigger. All of the nannies remembered Mezmur. He's a popular boy.
It was powerful to be there again. Aster, the director is an angel on earth. Those children are in good hands and so loved. We toured around, played with the big kids, had a coffee ceremony and asked for more information our our kids. Aster was able to tell me that the head nurse named Mezmur. Sadly, she is on vacation, so I couldn't meet her. I did hug the woman who matches the children with each family....another angel from heaven.
After KidsCare, which was a deep experience, we headed to lunch. Silas is soooo good and laid back. I put him in the sling (which I prayed he would love and he does! Puts him right to sleep, usually.) and we ordered. He got a little fussy so I took him out. I put my hand on his shoe and it was wet. So, I did what any mommy would do and I smelled the wetness now on my hand. It was poop. One of the Dads helped me remove the sling and he proceeded to clean the poop out of it....what a guy! I took my messy boy to the bus and cleaned him up. Who's great idea was it to have ziplocks in the diaper bag? Well, thank you very much! I needed two...one for clothes and one for diaper and a million poopy wipes. Silas smiled the whole time and we went back to lunch.
I spent the rest of the day with poop on my pants....a true badge of honor, I tell ya!
Poor Marshall is not feeling well...he stayed in today. He's taking some medicine and hopefully will be better very soon. Please pray for him and the rest of our group.
I left him and Silas upstairs...Silas napping and Marsh resting, so I better go rest myself.
Tomorrow is German Embassy and hopefully that visa will be ready Monday.
Love to you all!
jill, marshall & silas
