Little Lovencia is an absolutely beautiful baby girl who came to us smiling! Under the circumstances, we were all truly truly surprised to see a smile on her face after about an hour of being in the NICU. Lovencia is eight months old and on admission weighed just about six pounds. At first, we couldn't believe she was eight months old! This tiny child was so small, so malnourished, so dehydrated. Both she and her mother came to us from the Samaritan's Purse clinic in Cite Soleil. Both mom and daughter were frail and underweight, Lovencia's mother had been trying to breast feed her, but with her being so malnourished as well, she was not making any milk.
They have been with us for about two weeks now and Lovencia and her mother are doing great! Both are gaining weight, Lovencia has gained over two pounds and mama Lovencia is starting to get her milk in again! We are so happy to see this positive change in both mama and baby!
Now, I couldn't write this blog without giving you a glimpse of the beautiful baby girl and her amazing smile but I thought I would do one better than a photo... Please click the link below to see just how amazing this beautiful baby girl is; take a look at her smile and listening to her laugh. It's sure to make your day brighter!
