11-2-11 Malachi Exudes Confidence and Calm

Posted: Updated:

Today's Wednesday's Child will turn 5 in about a month, and a great birthday and Christmas present would be for him to find a forever home.   Actually, in this case, you would be the one getting the gift.

We met with Malachi at the Gran Prix..and being too young to drive the cars, we spent a lot of time taking in all the video games instead.

Malachi is a quiet,confident kid.   You immediately notice his long eyelashes and a wonderful disposition.

"Well, Malachi, when you first look at him you want to melt, because he's just the most handsomest little boy you've ever seen...but he's very shy, very reserved," says Gina, an adoption recruiter for the County's Division of Family Services.

"He has no problem...he'd fit into any home, sometimes you may have to look around and see if he's still there, but he's very quiet, but he really knows what he wants, he's into the things that he likes.]," adds Gina.

Malachi is doing very well in Pre-K classes....he loves sponge-bob, and is starting to show he's his own man after a rocky early childhood.

"He's come a long way...since he was a little one, and he's really thriving, he's getting out of his shell, and he's starting to be really social....not that social, but he his much better than used to be," admits Gina.

Malachi will need a permanent home with plenty of consistency and love.

"The best home for Malachi is someone to just enjoy this charming little boy.   Just enjoy him, because he doesn't have a lot of needs, he really doesn't ...he just really needs somebody to love him," says Gina.

Malachi has other siblings he wants to stay in touch with... So we need parents who understand that.

if you'd like to get started in the process of adopting Malachi, call the local office of the Adoption Exchange at 436-6335.
