Baby Girl!

Just this morning as I sorted through several bags of beautiful clothes, blankets, bibs, and other things brought by donation over the weekend, I saw that most was for infant girls and thought "the next one needs to be a girl..." Well, I don't know if it's funny or not, but I didn't even have to wait two hours!

We were called about a 1 year old, another temporary case?, so when we opened the door expecting a toddler, we stared at the little mound of blankets and were like uh........oops. Turns out even though Child Defense says in their report "appears to be 1 year of age", somebody was busier listening to the radio and the unfolding Bolivia crisis rather than looking. She's 1 MONTH old and a cutie! Guess God just wants us to have the smallest babies. =)

So the work continues full ahead even as we deal with the fallout of friends evacuating Bolivia and hope for some sort of resolution of the ongoing conflict, strife, and shortages. We've just come off a 3 day weekend holiday in Cochabamba so we were mercifully spared much of the strife the rest of the country was (and is) experiencing. Thanks to all who are praying!! Your words of encouragement are a special blessing during these difficult and uncertain days.
