Malaria Update.

Baby Boy is back at the orphanage after a very close call with malaria. Because of his small size and the severity of the malaria, they had to treat it using what I consider to be extreme measures that I won’t detail here, or he would have died.

We are told that mosquitos are as bad as they’ve ever been in DRC right now. They are in their rainy season, there is lots of standing water, and the hospitals have lines out the door of people bringing in malaria-ridden babies–many of whom haven’t survived.

Please keep Baby Boy’s continued health and strength in your prayers — along with the strength of all the babies currently battling malaria. I am very worried he has many more hospital stays in store for him.

Please pray also that our adoption would progress quickly so that we can bring him home.
