    New Update on Baby Rachel

    Hi, friends. For those of you who do not know, my DD is a foster mom and has had a baby here with us (we live in attached houses) for 5 weeks. Baby Rachel just turned one and continues to throw up every day. Bethany is now giving her only 4 oz of formula every 1 1/2 hours to help her digest it. She cannot tolerate any food, even baby food. Today she has had three episodes of diarhea. We are very concerned. Rachel has an appointment on Wednesday with a gastroenterologist. The good news is that she has continued to gain weight under B's care. Pray for the doctors to find out what is wrong, for Rachel to be able to keep her formula down and for B to have the energy to care for her two sons, a homeless 7 year old boy who is staying with them and for Rachel. Amazingly, Rachel continues to be a cheerful, sweet girl who hardly ever fusses. We thank God for her!

    These things, I warmly wish for you-
    Someone to love, some work to do,
    A bit'o sun, a bit'o cheer.
    And a guardian angel always near.

      Poor little Rachel! I'm glad she has Bethany and all your family to care for her. I'll be praying for you all.

        Consider it done.........there is a special place in heaven for Bethany for all her work with foster children. What she is doing is amazing!

              I remember one of my teachers in college telling us about his son's allergies. He couldn't take his mother's milk, so they tried formula. Then every type of "free" formula there was until they settled on rice milk. He has allergies to dairy, nuts, soy and gluten (among others I probably don't remember). Poor kid. I hope that's not little Rachel's problem because allergies SUCK! Especially when they're so little and they can't tell you what's wrong.

                Praying for baby Rachel and that this doctor can really help her. So sad for this child to be experiencing this.

                      Adding my prayers..May the doctors fine the problem, may it be corrected immediately and may your sweet daughter have all the strength and what ever else is needed and you too. We praise God for you all.

                      22 A happy heart is good medicine,
                      but low spirits sap one’s strength.


                      May God richly bless you daily..

                          Poor Rachel! I hope they find the issue soon. Your daughter, the homeless boy and RAchel will be in my thoughts!

                          Life is like a party. You invite a lot of people; some go, some join you, some laugh with you, some didn’t come. But in the end, after the fun, there would be a few who would clean up the mess with you. And most of the time, those were the uninvited ones.

                            Prayers for this sweet baby, Rachel. She has been placed with your daughter for a reason. That is why she is continuing to gain weight through her problems. You will find the answers.

                              I so wanted to be a foster parent but half way through all the training I had to stop. I just know my heart would break for every single child that came into my care...it takes an incredibly strong person to be able to foster children and then give them up. I just couldn't do it. Kudos to your daughter...she must have a heart of gold!
