Two Miracle baby's..

We have seen God's faithfulness so much during the last month!! We had two baby's we have been struggling with from the start. The first one is Lawrence he came on October 30, (you can read in the blog). A very small little boy, was born premature, but he gained very slowly. In the week before Christmas he really got sick. We even had Dr. Florence come to see him. He got IV fluids and also IV medication. At the end he got blood transfusion, and that did the trick. After that he started to drink and gain!!!
 His weight is now 4 kg!! (4 months old)
Then the second child is Sabina. You can read about her in the blogs of Nov. 20 and 25. She was very small, 2.2 kg and she did not gain. She was very sick and we discovered that she had a small hole in her heart. That could be closing by itself when she starts growing and getting stronger. But she did not grow!!! She stayed 2.2 kg for more than a month, and you just saw her getting worse. We really thought that we would loose her. 
But now, since 2 weeks, she is gaining. She is the baby on our Christmas card, and she is now 3 kg!! (7 weeks old).  She can smile and really cry when we delay with her feeding. We are so thankful for those two precious children, they are a testimony of God's faithfulness!!!
