On the 30th of August 2008 I prayed and asked God for a little baby, then God gave me Jodie....
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

Week 3 and 4 at home
Jodie's stitches in her stomach must've stretched a little bit, because every time we feed her she would reflux. Just to explain, her reflux was so severe that it caused neumonia in NICU, and if we didn't stop the stomach contents from coming out she would get neumonia again... So every two hours when I fed her, I made sure the tube stayed open for at least 20minutes. So feeding took an hour, I had an hour of "rest" inbetween. The other problem we faced was that when she refluxed we had to run and put the syringe back on, open the tube so that the contents will push up into the syringe and not to her lungs. With the vomiting continuing and her struggling to breathe with every feed all we had left was to pray.
