Introducing...

Adelia Hope






[For any of you who may be wondering... Adelia is pronounced like Amelia except with a "d" instead of the "m". But I imagine we'll be calling her Addie most of the time, anyway.]

These pictures were taken when she was two weeks old, on our first visit with her. We aren't yet sure when she'll be able to come home with us. When we asked, we were told, "She's nowhere near ready yet." At this point she is needing encouragement for every ounce of formula she takes in, and before discharging her they'd like to see her become a better eater and gain some weight. She's a little over 6 lbs right now. Isn't she beautiful?

  1. Stacey, May God bless you with a child who has beautiful feet.....

    Romans 10:15 As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!"

    What a beautiful tribute this is to the Lord.

    She is beautiful.

  39. She's beautiful!

    Our youngest foster daughter came to us at 6 lbs. and she was 3 weeks old. We've had her for over 3 months now and she's up to 12 lbs. Although she's only in the 25th percentile she actually looks chubby! We couldn't be happier.

    I hope she gets to come home to you soon!
