Update on Benaiah!

Every other week or so, the director of America World's transition home sends out photos, and this week with our photo, we got an update treat! I think she sent it because I had been asking about Benaiah's weight... He is so skinny!!


M***** is on Nan-1 formula which is for children under 6 months.


M***** is a good sleeper, and wakes twice during the night for a bottle. He takes a couple of naps during the day.


M***** is so happy, smiley, and loves interacting with people.


M*****’s skin is a beautiful shade of brown. He is petite, yet very strong! You’ll often find him doing some sort bending /stretching movement on the floormat…I have to keep him from rolling on top of the other babies! He gets around very well by inching himself along, like a worm. M*****’s hair is longer on top, a style which is often found on children coming from rural areas.


M***** has been very healthy since he has been with us. He has not dealt with any sort of sickness.


Current weight: 13 pounds

Our apologies to the parents of the other babies who our guy is mowing over on the mats!!

Real men wear pink, by the way.

This report and the photo just make us want to bring him home more desperately!! Come on Wednesday!!

Keep praying!!

Yes we are the forth family! We are right there with you fasting and praying for all the families and their court dates. The update today helped a little, but the longing is stronger than ever! Please God give us this one!
