My Face may be different, but my feelings the same
I laugh and I cry, and I take pride in my gains
I was sent here among you, to teach you to love
As God in the heavens, looks down from above
To Him I am no different, His love know no bounds
Its those here among you, in cities and towns
That judge me by standards that man has imparted
But this family I have chosen will help me get started
For I'm one of the children, so special and few
That came here to learn the same lessons as you
That love is acceptance it must come from the heart
We all have the same purpose, though not the same start
The Lord gave me life, to live and embrace
And I'll do it as you do but at my own pace

Day 14 - Jodie refuses to drink.

Jodie isn't drinking at all. Everytime she is bottlefed her saturation drops and the oxygen is on its highest. Her little body is full of needlepricks as her veins keep on falling flat and the drips tissue. She had another three times of veins not holding. I left NICU at 11pm that night with a drip in her foot and arm. On arrival the next morning - with a very tired body and mind - I noticed all her hair was shaven off and she had two drips in her head. What an awfull sight! She must've had a terrible night, I counted 17 needlepricks in her head. I sat next to her and started praying. " God, please once again I beg you to help our baby, God she is helpless, You saved her life. All I am asking is make her well enough to take her home". Jodie did not drink at all that day.
