I just read a post of a fellow AWAA family waiting to travel Ethiopia and bring home their little girl. (click here to read their story.) Their daughter came to America World's Transistional Home very malnourished, and apparently lots of infants entering the home are facing the same situation. When the babies are this malnourished, their bodies cannot digest regular infant formula. Instead they need a special formula that is $30 a can. Well now Tom Davis, author of Red Letters and Fields of the Fatherless, is getting involved. His ministry Children's Hope Chest, is stepping in to raise $12,500 to buy this special formula for America World's Transistion Home. Check out Tom Davis's blog here to find out how you can help.
Secondly, will you please pray for Charlotte tomorrow as she is scheduled for surgery in the morning. She will be have a nose revision/reconstruction, ear tubes, and part of her adnoids removed. She may have further repairs to her palate as well, but won't know until the surgery begins. Pray that she remains comfortable in the hospital, and that her recovery will be quick and smooth. Thank you so much.
