And this would be why it took me so long to start a blog (I keep saying that, don’t I? LOL)…I can’t seem to develop the discipline to make daily entries.  Just too much else to do!

At any rate, tomorrow, March 5th, was to have been Adah’s original expected BIRTHday.  And she’s already been with us since before Thanksgiving!!  Wow!  She weighs in now at just a few ounces shy of 6 pounds, and she’s 19" long!  She’s getting more hair, so now Leslie can wash and brush it.  How sweet!  The docs have actually brought up the subject of allowing Adah to go home…something that hadn’t really been mentioned by them before now. So, it is with great hope that we all expect a homecoming very soon.  Adah is being weaned off of her supplemental oxygen, but since she will be living at a very high altitude, there is some discussion about whether or not Leslie and Eric will need to move.  But, we shall leave that in the Lord’s hands.  So far, so good on Adah’s eye/sight issues.  She’s passed her weekly eye exams, and the exams are now being scheduled for every two weeks.  So, please keep praying that the surgery can be avoided and that her eyes self-correct.  Thank you!

Here are a few pics.  I love the one with Eric’s wedding band.  Remember when it slid easily over her foot and onto her leg?!  And remember that Teddy Bear….how huge it was beside Adah when she was newly born?!  God has truly blessed us all with this little miracle child!  And I know that so much of this miracle has come because of the fervent prayers of so many of you.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Love, Dawn
