This week little A became our 9th child to be adopted in 2012!!

This Bolivian lady's family cared for A when he was found as a newborn on New Year's Eve last year, abandoned in a hostel in a more tropical part of the country several hours from Cochabamba. When A was brought to the city in January to be legally placed at Casa de Amor, the family moved to Cochabamba to be able to hire a lawyer and begin guardianship paperwork for A even though they wouldn't be able to visit him during the process.

While many Bolivians are interested in adopting, many are surprised by the long waits and all the bureacracy. A's papers had actually gone through several weeks prior, but due to one error on the final government memo, several steps had to be redone. During that time baby A got sick with rotavirus, was hospitalized, nearly re-hospitalized, and really struggled to get better.

Pray for our family at CDA III who really grew to love him, and for A's transition time to his new family!
