New Admissions to Orphanage in April and May

I am sitting her today so exhausted that I think I will go take a nap during lunch time!  I can’t seem to catch up on my sleep for some reason.  I thought I might feel better if I go back on my high protein/low carb diet, so I started it again today.  But I have to tell you that I have started it every day this week and last until 5 PM and then I eat what everyone else eats!  But today is a new day, so maybe I can stick to it today!  I feel like if I can get through one whole day on the diet, the next day will be easier!  At least I hope!!  So pray for me that I can start feeling a little better and get some rest this weekend!

photo(Sorry, I wrote Jessica but everyone tells me her name is Rebekah! I was sure it was Jessica!  :-( )

Rebekah arrived after 5 PM last night along with her mother.  Lori at Real Hope for Haiti sent her because Rebekah weighs 2 pounds (1 kg) and was having trouble breathing.  By the time she arrived, she was having apnea (periods of not breathing) and she was not doing well.

Susan Westwood came over to the nursery when Rebekah arrived.  Susan set up CPAP to help her breath while I started her IV. 

Thankfully, she was stable during the night and seems to be holding her own this morning.  Please keep her in your prayers.

I just prayed for your health and will continue to. You and all the people who work for/with GLA are such examples of following Christ and his will for our lives. Our family is approved to adopt from the orphanage and every time I see a one of these beautiful faces, my heart flutters in anticipation wondering if one of them is meant to be ours. God bless you and much love to all of you.
