Day 3


We didn’t get to meet Malachi today.  One of the officials that needs to be present was not able to make it to the meeting, so we got rescheduled for tomorrow.  It actually worked out very good.  We spent the morning at the US Embassy getting paperwork for Malachi’s visa, and the afternoon getting registered at the police station.  It is required for foreigners to register with the local police (there is a fine if they catch you!).  It would actually help us later if we had any trouble with customs–they’ll have a record of where we stayed, for how long, and why we were here.

We went sight-seeing, had coffee (I love the latte’s here), and got eclairs at a local bakery.  There are lots of little bakeries & shops, so it was great.  There is a huge cathedral close to our apartment that we saw today.

St. Sava Cathedral

We also thought you might enjoy some of the local talent:

Please pray for us.  Tomorrow is a day we’ve been waiting 450 days for!! We know the moment we hold him in our arms, he will be worth the wait.  Praise the Lord!!



  1. Hey, was there any Bath and Body Works soaps left under the kitchen sink? LOL

  2. There is an AWESOME bakery by the city hall building walking towards the back..west side 🙂 It was the best one we found. 🙂

  3. Yum Bakeries and Lattes!! I’m praying for everything to go smoothly. Thanks for the updates and for the amazing music!!! LOL

  4. Thanks for the email link to your blogspot. It is wonderful to read how your first days have gone. I am hoping by the time I’ve typed this, that you have met your son – and it was a blessed moment. Tom and are think and pray for you every day. Blessings, blessings, Laurie and Tom

  5. You guys must be so ready to meet Malachi. Have a great day tomorrow and hope there is a ton of joy and the like. After I saw that video, I am now strangely compelled to buy animal print shirts…

  6. Praying for you both! Looking forward to hearing how tomorrow goes.


  7. Oooh, the Eclairs… I can just taste them now! Did you get them from the bakery with the black exterior (can’t remember the name)… that was our favorite. Please give Jasmina a huge hug from us and tell her that we are thinking of her. And, I can’t wait for your post tomorrow!!!

  8. My belly is doing flip flops for you guys! I can’t wait for you to hold your little boy! 🙂

  9. Hey that guy is really good! Maybe we can get him for our team??? Haha! I hope you guys are doing great. I miss you all. I am still in Texas. I can not wait to meet Malachi. He is so sweet looking.

  10. Thank you for keeping us posted. We are so excited for you and praying for all 4 of you 🙂
