Little Baby Dear!

Baby Elliana arrived 9 days ago! She is now 3 weeks old, and doing so well. She was abandoned at the hospital by her mother. A big answer to our prayers that the hospital would start calling us when they have desperate cases, they did! And brought us this beautiful baby girl! We named her Elliana which means "The Lord Responds". 

She is such a gift:-) She weighed 5 pounds on arrival to our center. She is small, but very healthy. We missionaries have been taking turns having her each night. Tonight I get to have her again. She needs fed every 3 hours. It's such a joy taking care of newborns! Very tiring, I am not sure how a mother does it EVERY night. But I love it:-)

Isn't she so beautiful?!
(excuse the yellow medicine she spit up all over the front of her outfit)

Oh my!!! I just read your profile and I am sure that you know my friend that is in Mozambique!! Her name is Angela Olson and she's originally from West Virginia. She is sweet, beautiful and smart and a dear friend that I would LOVE to be able to sit down and chat with again face to face. Oh, and she's also with Iris Ministries. :)

Small world!!!
