We were so delighted to see how good she looks! (We had received an earlier video where she did not look so well.) I'm not going to go into the details of the medical update, but suffice it to say that I literally lost my breath when I read how low her hemoglobin had been in the past year. When I called my Mom to give her the update (she knows a lot about hemoglobin values from raising this thal baby), she was out Christmas shopping and sounded like she, too, had been hit in the chest. Thankfully, R's recent values were much better. Still, this Mama is worrying about her little baby from far away.
We were also thrilled to find out that R has been in the Love Without Boundaries Nutrition Program since she was a baby! In fact, she appeared on their recent Nutrition Program update here. It makes me so happy to know that she's getting some assistance from such a wonderful organization, but it also makes me a little sad to know that she needs this kind of assistance in her life right now. It was amazing to see the outpouring of support when Amy Eldridge of LWB announced on Facebook that R had a family. Supporters of LWB from all over the globe were estatic to hear that our precious little daughter would be "One Less."
Everyone please join us in hoping for a quick paperwork process to bring our second little princess home!
