We need prayers for these two loves

PLEASE PRAY for Amelia~
Isn't she beautiful? She is 12 years old and weighs only 12 (*shock*) pounds. She is coming home to America now! from Eastern Europe~ Pleven. Here is what Susanna, Katie's mom said about her~

 "She is just so emotionally fragile.  She has the ability to drink out  of those horrid bottles, but is traumatized and refusing everything just like  Katie did.  Even with the extra pound she gained this past spring due to  Tokuda, she still has so few physical reserves, and that’s partly what makes  this stressful and scary for Jenny.  (Not to mention that her three other  new children are back at the hotel without her.  What a nightmare of a week  she is having.  :( )  The orphanage diet has slightly improved, but it is still far from what it should be.  Too little too late.  Primarily,  now that Amelia’s cut loose from everything that was familiar to her, she’s  bottoming out because her emotional reserves are nil.  Part of our praying  should be that she opens up to Jenny emotionally and begins to find comfort from  her, and attach to her, so she can heal.  The lack of that bond and human  contact is partly what caused her condition, and if her receptors have been so  badly damaged that they aren’t working any more, well, let’s just pray that God  continues to work His miracles in her.  NOBODY is past the ability to learn  to receive love, but it can be a very long process.  Amelia is suffering  the effects of 8 years with no baba, and then 3 1/2 years of a NOT-good  baba.  It is possible to roughly connect the condition of the children in  Pleven with the factors that caused the condition they’re in.  How old/how  long in Pleven, their original dx or lack thereof, “cute” or “not-so-cute,” on  the top floor or no, baba or no, good baba or bad, what percentage of the  child’s life they had a baba—and from all this you could come up with a fairly  accurate picture of the child’s condition without ever having met them.   :(  "

I could not have said that better myself, so she graciously allowed me to use her words!
There is a fund for Amelia's medical care being started her~
Also PLEASE remember Jesse in your prayers. You can read about him here~  http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/jessegreen
He is so sweet. He's 13 years old and since his last surgery, life has been very hard for him. He's just not getting back to "normal". He needs our prayers!
Thank You! (((HUGS))) everyone!

  1. I literally can't sleep because I can't stop thinking about Amelia. My heart is broken that for every moment we spend concerned for her, she's spent ten more alone. All these sweet babes... what was done to them is so wrong, so horrible. That is my number one prayer for Amelia besides that her physical condition improves... that she is able to form an attachment to her Mama. Attachment is so vital. Poor sweetie. I can't even put how much her state breaks my heart into words. I want to hug her and never let go. I can't imagine how Jenny must be feeling.


I love comments :o) so please be kind! (((HUG)))
