Children of the Promise, HAITI

Monday, April 25, 2011


We are once again sadden to write that one of our sweet babies have passed away.  Annella and her twin sister Annelle were admitted in December 2010.  At the time they were admitted they were 11 months old and Annella weighed only 7 lbs 15 oz.  Annella stayed in the volunteer house for nearly three months to receive extra attention and a special diet to help her gain weight.  Even with all of this, she was still very small and gained very little.  She did catch up developmentally while she was here.  She learned how to sit, army crawl, clap, and babble.

About a month ago Annella went out to the baby but began to loose weight.  We brought her back to the volunteer house to try and help her get better.  After several tests over the months, we thought we were finally getting close to finding out what was making her so sick.  We took her to the hospital on Tuesday night to do more advanced tests and have closer monitoring.  Annella unfortunately passed away Wednesday afternoon.

Please pray for her family as they mourn the lost of their little girl as well as all the volunteers who fell in love with her while they were here.  Annella has a special place in all of our hearts and will never be forgotten.

We have not had any new admits, discharges, or birthdays!
