And....It's a Boy!

Thanks to recent adoptions (see here and here), we have the joy of being able to say YES to some of the many calls we always receive about more children!

Yesterday we said yes to a 4 year old boy (still waiting for him).
Then we said wait about a special needs 5 year old, until some more children are adopted from CDA II.
Then today we got another call about a 2 month old...who turns out to be younger.
Turns out he was discovered alone in a motel room on New Year's Eve. The lady renting the room said she was going to run out for breakfast, but by 3pm had not returned and the daughter of the owner was alerted by the baby's lusty cries.
Baby A appears to be nearing one month old, same as our other new baby M. (So, both Christmas week babies?!)

Tia Rosi LOVES loves babies...

...and was actually the first of us to get her hands on him!

Here's a cool fact: Baby A actually arrived right on the heels of our newest volunteer, Genevieve! I had no sooner started down the stairs from the third floor office to meet her when the doorbell rang and the baby was here! Here she is helping give a bottle.

And here's our other new volunteer, just arrived yesterday - Iris from Holland!

Checking out the two newest babies side-by-side, Baby M (arrived 2 weeks ago today) and Baby A
Fun times! :)

Vico actually said as he was leaving "Tu nuevo bebe es MUY lindo"...

I'm glad there are two tinies to cuddle now because with all the volunteers, I sometimes don't have a chance!! :)
