Amana's growing


It's been a few months since I've given an update about baby Amana. For those of you who don't know Amana, he is a 7 month old orphan boy. About four months ago, Haua, his caregiver came asking for help and we were able to start feeding him formula every time she brought him to the compound. The first time I saw him he had red hair - a sign of malnutrition - and measles. But today he looked so good. He gulped down a full 8 ounces of formula and I sent more home with him. I also gave him some new clothes. This outfit he's wearing in the picture I gave him months ago but I don't think it gets washed much. Thank you to all of you who've been praying for him.

Oh Honey, how often does Amana come over? I could just squeeze him! What does Hisi think of Amana and Praise around the house?
