Pictures & an update!!!!!!!!!

When we were not sure if Georgia's orphanage had been flooded we had Angela at Ladybugs N Love do an orphanage call to make sure that everyone is safe....and guess what the orphanage sent? 9 new pictures ofour little girl!!!!! She is just getting over a cold & fever and has bonked on her lip but we cannot believe that we have pictures that were taken yesterday!!!!!!!!! If you look closely the pillow has a picture of us on it and the book is pictures of us!

Here's a couple of them:

She is still very tiny, 20 pounds! Please keep praying for her, we did find out that she can only walk a few steps before needing to sit and rest because of her heart condition. Would you please pray specifically for:
* Healing from this cold that she has. They said she had a fever for a few days, does not have pneumonia but a runny nose now. Getting sick can tax her heart even more and be very dangerous for her.
* For our travel approval to come quickly! We could hear something anytime and are anxiously waiting for that phonecall!
* For patience for us and that we keep our eyes on the Lord as we know that His timing is perfect!
I'm off to print some pictures!!!!

Shannon, ALL of you are in my prayers, but especially little Georgia.

I know that Georgia is small because of her heart condition, but I wanted to remind you that Tessa is a little lightweight, too, and healthy and strong. I know that you just need to hold Georgia in her arms now, and get her the help she needs from the cardiologist, but as the mom of another peanut I just had to chime in. The doctors had me keep food diaries for Tessa as she wasn't even ON the charts for a long time (50th percentile for height, and not on for weight), and they were convinced that something terrible was wrong, I think....but she's just made that way, and is healthy. I know that Georgia has special heart problems and I do not mean to de-emphasize that in any way, but I wanted to share our story as a hopeful one. The weight just might not be as big of a concern as you first thought....or that is my hope, anyway. You have enough to think about with the heart without worrying about that, too!

I can't wait to meet your daughter.
