Now normally (whatever that is!), we like to receive one a month, but there are exceptions...
A little review:
September 1, little girl J arrived from the nutrition center
September 2, baby boy S arrived from the maternity hospital
September 6, baby girl N arrived from a group of nuns
And we had only received three all YEAR to this point, the triplets! An unusual year indeed, but what can I say - the trips were high maintenance for several months there!
On September 6 at almost 11am, I was just arriving to the pedatric hospital to visit little girl J and my eyes were fixed on a stroller holding adorable boy twins.......when Rosa called from the office. She said she had just said yes to a 7 day old baby who would probably arrive in the afternoon!!
At 1pm I had just sent an email to my family saying "It's a Girl!" when the doorbell rang. We welcomed in a group of sweet nuns who begged us to take good care of the baby and then left crying. The presumed mother had abandoned the baby with them two days before, Saturday morning, by meeting up with them at the bus station and handing over the baby in a cardboard box (can you imagine?! as if she were a puppy dog to be passed off so easily). At this point we know practically nothing else, except that the mother called back on Monday to say the baby was 10 days old, so that's how we're calculating her birthdate for now.
