Three-Week Update On The Girls

This past Friday marked three weeks that the girls have been in our GBH family. Though it has been a learning process for our team, the general feeling in our home is one of God's peace that passes understanding and joy that remains.

The girls are sleeping 10-11 hours a night with morning and afternoon naps of two hours during the day. In week two we introduced solids with rice cereal, and they now have three veggies in their repertoire of acquired tastes.

Developmentally, God's hand of healing cannot be denied in their progress. Both arrived with little body strength and were generally floppy in their necks, torsos and legs. Maria is now bouncing like crazy in the exersaucer and Daniela is sitting up on her own. Both are more and more communicative with their eye contact, facial expressions and attempts at speech. This past week Maria's two bottom teeth came in.

Thanks to your prayers, Maria is almost completely healed of her cold. Please pray for Daniela. She has a nighttime cough that wakes her up and can frustrate her sleep. Pray for God's continued touch on both of His princesses.

For those of you who would like to contribute, we are in need of formula, baby food, and diapers. We have created an amazon baby registry list where you can purchase items and have them shipped to our YUGO office in National City.

Thank you for your continued prayers and support for God's work here at GBH!
