Praying.

Praying especially for Alex. I cannot imagine how hard this must be for him-being half a world away from Gadese and the baby and not being able to comfort them in this time of uncertainty.

Ali said...

Praying!! Can she go often to breastfeed or hold her? I am so sorry. I wish I was near enough to giver her a hug.

Candace said...

Steffany...please don't let her be discouraged! They are taking care of her precious baby. She's going to be healthy when she goes home and most importantly-ALIVE! Let them take care of her and fix her up and praise God for the medical care we have here in America vs. Ethiopia!

We are praying! It will all turn out.

I agree with Candace but at the same time I cannot imagine how hard that is to be away from her. It makes me sick just thinking about how her heart must feel. And her body, too. The bonding needs to happen for milk production!!!

So sorry! But thank God Gadese is with you, and Christiana is at the Mizzou Hospital. I pray these days apart will soon be a distant memory, and the family will be together again soon. Is there any way Alex can come to the U.S. for a visit? This must be so difficult for him.
In Christ, Lory in Colorado

Reassure her that it is a good thing that they are taking such good care of her precious baby. Bless her dear heart! Tell her that we will be praying for her heavy heart.

Can she stay at the hospital with her? When my newborn had to be stay in the hospital...I stayed in there with her. I so hope she can too.

Gedese is at the hospital with her. They will even feed her because she's a nursing mother:)

Kami said...

Let Gadese know that she and Christiana are in my thoughts and prayers. Keep us updated on how they are doing. Sending love from Colorado!!!

Laura said...

Why are they keeping her? Give Gadese love from Texas. Assumed all was well and that they were both home. Ug!

Christi said...

Please tell Gadese that we are praying for her in Texas and that I think her baby girl is beautiful! Keep us posted on her progress and give them both big hugs for us!

Sorry to hear that they are keeping Christiana, but trusting that God's protective hand is on her. Praying for strength and encouragement. Hope and healing.
