Many mini (wo)men.....

Little Anthonia was born on 14th of May 2014. She was 2 month premature and her mother passed away shortly after the delivery, due to extensive bleeding. A very bad start for such a tiny little girl who got such a big name!! The father was confused and 3 days later, the uncle, with the help of two nurses from the hospital, came to Amecet for help.
 It was a lot of work, feeding by NG tube, sickness, but what a joy when we saw Anthonia going home today!!! She tripled her weight, is a smiling, chubby, beautiful little girl. 
On the picture you see the father, together with his daughter Anthonia, he came to pick her. It is such a reward, seeing this little girl going home. Especially Janneke, our nurse, has put a lot of her energy and heart into the recovering of this little girl. We said goodbye lately, to some other of those mini people, Sabina, Lawrence and Barnabassi all went home healthy, while they came into Amecet in a very critical condition.
At the moment we have two other mini-men in Amecet. When they came, one day apart, they were both under the 1,5 kg. They are no brothers, but they are very alike. Janneke had a lots of struggles with them in the beginning, but now they are both almost 3 kg! They doubled their weight and they are doing well, no sickness, just sleeping, eating and crying like on this picture, it was time for their bottle.

  1. Wat mooi en aangrijpend om te lezen. Ik overleefde drie bloedingen. Ik had zo graag gewild dat dit kindje haar moeder ook mocht houden. Net als mijn kinderen. Fijn dat de familie zich om het kindje bekommerd. Gods zegen!
