Promised photos of some of the children…

We have sent two children home this week that were here just for help.  It is sad to watch them go but they both were doing so well now and the parents felt like they could care for them.

Abygaëlle June 2010-4

Abygaelle is doing great.  Last month, photos were taken by Rhyan and she did special photos with pearls and beautiful headdresses.

Look how bright Abygaelle is and she is so alert.  You can also see that she eats well and is growing every day!



Miloudrine June 2010-21



This is Miloudrine.  Look how happy she is!  When she came here she was sad and not very well.  Now she runs and plays and eats very well.

Please keep her in your prayers.





Raphaëlla and Wana 1 July 2010 -2


These are the new twin girls that arrived this week.  One is Raphaella and one is Wana.  I cannot tell you which is which but the nurses in the nursery and all of the volunteers know them apart already!

They are really good babies and seem to be really healthy and eating well.


Stravenky May 2010 2010-8

Stravenky on arrival 3 Feb 2010


Stravenky is a happy little boy who has gained quite a bit of weight since his arrival at GLA.  The photo on the right is on admission and look at him now!  I hope he does well at home.  Please pray for him daily that all will go well.



Woodson and mama 1 July 2010 -2


This is Woodson with his mother.  She comes every day to hold him, pump breast milk for us to give him, and spends her days holding babies including her own!  She helps in the nursery when Woodson is asleep.

He is doing so well.  Woodson is off all respiratory support and drinking from a bottle.  He is growing and before we know it he will be ready to go home!  Susan will be so surprised when she sees how good he is doing!

Thank you for the pictures! I hope you are feeling better. I love reading your blog. I wanted to ask if Jerrensia has had her xrays yet? Any news on when she will be able to get them? I would love to help her. My email is if there is anything I can do to help remotely. I would love to sponser her in the US if she could have surgery/therapy here. Jennifer

They are adorable. I praise our loving Father for the work you are doing. By the way, will you be giving us an update soon about when proposals might possibly be made to the parents-in-waiting whose files have been in your office since January? and if the government (IBSER) is still okay with foreign adoptions? Thanks Dixie...God Bless you and all the staff and volunteers at GLA.
