All the Little People...

 ...have brought so many smiles to our faces the last few days! Some tiny and sick, others fat and healthy, others screaming for a Mama that died. Here are a few of the priceless expressions that passed through our doors.


 This tiny girlie came in our gate with her very out-of-breath Mama. Mama was by herself at her house when she went into a very FAST labor. As soon as she could she walked to the clinic with her very dirty, screaming, preemie baby. She weighed 4 lbs. 10 oz. but was perfectly formed and healthy. They had a dirty string tied loosely around her cord and her little belly tied tight with an old rag. Whit and I felt like we were playing doll as we bathed her and dressed her in a newborn sleeper that was MUCH too big. :) After a bath and some lotion in her lil cheeks she fell asleep looking perfectly content. Her Mama begged me to name her, so I named her exactly what she looked like. Angel. 







 Little Roodnael came in last week severely malnourished with a very high fever. This week he's lost some of his stomach distension and is stronger... just like our hilarious little Camilson who has been making us nurses laugh with his big cheesy grin. YAY for PlumpyNut!



























                          Little Lovena has Downs Syndrome. She is cuteness personified.




 And the TWINS are back! Stina and Shadina are as healthy and chubby as ever. Thank God.

 I want to add a BIG Thank you to everyone who prayed for me during my time of sickness. I'm very happy and thankful to be reunited with my pink stethescope again. :) Praise God for life and breath!
