We were then told to wait right there and that they would go get him and bring him to us. What a long couple of minutes that was. We could hear him coming...he turned the corner and saw us and came running. He had a heart that he had painted for us on Valentines Day and had been saving to give to us. He was very excited to show it to us and tell us all about it. He gave us big hugs, including Ace. Truly an indescribable moment.
We went on into his daycare center to play. He showed us around and talked non-stop. He is quite the chatterbox! He and Ace played very well together. He is very sweet and gentle. They are very close to the same size. We brought him some new shoes which he was very excited about. He went around and showed them off to all the other kids and the staff. We just hung out and played with him for a couple of hours before it was time to go. We get to go back this afternoon for another hour or so. Off to rest!
Ace and I outside the orphanage....about to head in!
And we meet! Ace and Archie talking
Ace with the heart Archie made for us
Cracking each other up
They were up this wall together within a minute of entering the room
Putting on his new shoes
SO happy about these shoes!
Happy boy! Talking on the phone we brought him. He was having some serious and dramatic coversations.
Helping his friend talk on the phone. Such a sweetheart!
