This momma just got an update on her baby…and she couldn’t be happier! Nope…no court date–YET. But pretty stinking good if you ask me!
Just 2 months ago…little Isaac was unable to eat because of his severe malnourishment. Just 2 weeks ago, when we received his referral–his body couldn’t handle regular formula. He was only able to hold down special F75 formula…you can read about it here. UNICEF provided Hannah’s Hope with this formula for my little man. He was also around 7 pounds when he came in at 6 months. 2 weeks ago he was almost 10 pounds. AND TODAY??? Isaac is officially able to take Enfamil (as of the 16th!) and he is also digesting solids (cereal) THREE TIMES A DAY! WOOT! Praise the Lord!!! All glory and honor and praise be to His name! Our Isaac is now a WHOPPIN’ 12 POUNDS! Can you BELIEVE it!? Our prayers are being answered!!! Please continue to pray for his continued progress and strength!!! This mommy is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo happy!
And on a side note—just in case you wondered…he is having 3 bowel movements a day and a wet diaper at every changing. That-a-go Ike! AND…he is eating Enfamil every 2-3 hours AND 3 times at night! Sounds like I better get my sleep on while I can! I actually LOOK FORWARD to the day and the special one-on-one time I am going to have with Isaac throughout the night feedings! Richard, you are totally going to have to fight me to get your hands on him;). Now…if I was more coordinated and wouldn’t scare the neighbors, I’d run outside and do somersaults!
Truly, I can’t thank you enough for joining us in prayer! Please pray Isaac continues to progress well…gaining weight and eating well…I’m STOKED he is on Enfamil and cereal!!! AND 12 pounds! Please pray we get issued a court date soon and pray specifically that we pass the first time. Also–please pray that I am able to meet Isaac’s birth mother while I’m in Ethiopia…that God would make a way for our hearts to connect and finally meet. Thank you for praying!!! LOVE YOU ALL TO PIECES AND PIECES AND MORE PIECES!
