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

Feeling a little anxious...
I am so gratefull.. Jodie is doing really well she gained another 250grams in the last week although she is not growing in length nor head size. I am really thankfull that she is gaining weight and I have to say she is now drinking a liter of milk per day. Since the tube has been removed she has been doing great, I am almost 100% certain her reflux is gone. There is no more coughing and wheezing and shortness of breath, removing the tube was the right thing to do... God has been so good for our family. I have to admit I am a little anxious because Jodie's speech is not really there yet. She makes noises but with no syllables such as da,ba etc, I am sure it will happen. I exercise with her 2 hours per day and have made recordings which I play over and over again, I am just a little bit frustrated because I am not able to see any improvement.
