So, just a little news….

Introducing our newest little one:

Jillian Mae Bridges was born on 5-2-2011, weighing a whopping 3 lbs 5 oz.  She joined our family on 5-7-2011.  Little Jillian is now learning to eat and gain weight in the hospital so she can come home.  We’re looking at a few weeks before that happens. 

Today she weighed 3lbs 7.9 oz and was moved into a regular bassinet from her warming isolette.  She also took 13 cc’s of formula from a bottle, which is the most she’s taken.  Otherwise, she gets her food through the tube. 

God has a plan for her life and He knew her before she was born.  We are so blessed and excited to be given the opportunity to adopt and parent this little girl.

Please join us in praying for her growth and development.  I’ll keep you posted!

Hey! Wow, that was FAST! I would love to talk with you more about this sometime! We aren't ready to adopt now (little busy with our 8week old daughter!) but this is definitely something we know God wants us to do in the future. I'd love to find out what organization you used etc... Congratulations! She is so beautiful and I'm truly happy for your sweet family of 5! God is so good! Praying for you and all the adjustments you'll be making in the next few months especially!
