I wanted to give you all an update on two of the children I recently wrote about, along with introducing you to little R, our newest angel here for assistance.
As you can see from the picture below, Lovencia continues to share her beautiful smile and joyous laughter with us all! She was just about six lbs when she came to us and she is now up to 11 lbs! Lovencia is doing great and her mother is doing a wonderful job of taking care of her while here at GLA. Lovencia and her mother will be able to go home very soon!
Olson is also doing great! When he first came in, just about three weeks ago, the smiles were few and far between and he was unable to bear any weight on his legs. He is now smiling all the time, is starting to stand and tries to take a few steps! He has made great progress since joining us! Olson was 14 lbs on arrival and today he is 16 lb 13s oz! Way to go Olson!!
Our newest angel is here for assistance is little R. She came to us last Wednesday evening from Real Hope for Haiti. Upon admission, she weighed 2 lbs 13 oz. Her small body had some trouble keeping warm, so she was placed in the incubator. Over the weekend she had some trouble with feeding and her oxygen so we also started her on a little bit of oxygen and placed a feeding tube through her nose. Our hope is that with the tube, she will be able to rest and gain strength so she has the energy to suck a bottle. Unfortunately, her mother is unable to be with her due to post-delivery complications and illness. Overall, little R is doing well and is gaining weight. Please lift both R and her mother up in your prayers.
God shows us miracles everyday. These three are just a few of those miracles! Thank you for all of your prayers for these three angels and for your continued support of God's Littlest Angels. We couldn't do it without each and every one of you!
