September 21, 2011

Admits 4:
Madianne came to COTP on the 19th of this month.  Her Mother passed away a month ago.  She has been ill, and while visiting a clinic in his area, they recommend he bring her here.  Rose Guerda’s Mom showed him where we are located.  Madianne’s Dad has a deep love for her and truely want’s what is best for her.  He is capable of working, but has no one to care for her while he is gone during the day, and therefore is unable to.  She weighs a mere 10 lbs at 7 months old.  We are going to do try and help get her healthy and reunite her with her father in a few months!

Alfred and Alfredo’s Mom passed away the day they were born.  They were brought to us by their father and Aunt when the were 8 days old.  They are from over an hour away.  At admit they were 5 & 3 lbs.  They have been drinking well and gaining weight.  For being new borns they are both very lively and their personalities are already showing!  Please pray that both boys gain weight fast and are able to be reunited with their family quickly!

Chode Berline AKA Wadline is a three month old princess that came to us a week after her Mom passed away.  She was brought by her “Grandma,” a lady that her Mom knew and trusted well.  The Grandma has no means of caring for such a small baby and is very old and in poor health.  Wadline only weighed 5 lbs at admit.  She has already gained weight and is now 6 lbs!  She is a beautiful little girl and is doing really well here already!  Please pray that she also gains weight quickly and that her stay at COTP is short!

Discharges 1:
We are beyond excited to announce that Annelle has been reunited with her Mom!  We have been looking forward to this day for a long time as she comes from an amazing home and has a Mother that loves her dearly!  We are completely confident that her Mom will do everything in her power to advocate for and care for her youngest daughter!  We have already seen her strength in advocating for the medical needs of her son.  Please pray for Annelle who struggled to gain weight here.  Please pray for their entire family during this transition!

Nickensly can now hold up his own head during tummy time.  He can also roll from his tummy to his back!  Praise the Lord for these developments!  We are so proud of our little Nick!!
Fleurickson and Lou are both walking now!  Lou has also began talking!
Adleyson is begining to crawl!
Anel has been walking for a while now, but thanks to his braces, his feet are now turning forward rather than out as they were before!
Five of the kids in the Elephant room have began potty training!
Birthdays 3:
Isaiha celebrated his 2nd birthday last week!  He loved his cake and had a fun birthday party under the Mango tree!  He is doing so well and we are very pleased with the developments he’s making!

Joseph celebrated his 1st birthday earlier this month!  It’s amazing to see how far he has come!  All of the Boat and Girraf kids enjoyed celebrating with him!

Manno also celebrated his birthday, turning 3!  He is such a sweet handsome little boy, and we were excited to be able to spend this day with him!  He enjoyed the attention as well!
Jennie Flore has an appointment in Port au Prince on the 26th.  Please pray it goes smoothly.
Irelene has her Visa appointment on the 28th!  This is her last stage of the process!  Please pray it goes quickly and smoothly!
Wedly’s adoptive parents are coming to fill out some paper work this week.  Please pray they have safe travels and they are able to get everything done.
Please pray for all three of these kids’s adoptions and that we are able to unite them with their new families as quickly as possible!

How can someone get those type of items to you (the items that are on your needs list)?

Also do you need baby clothing?

Do you guys use any cloth diapers?

Can't wait to be there! I'm already in love with these kids and I haven't even met them yet. They're beautiful!
