Dear Barbara, please go to www.ukraineorphans.net and click on Ela's picture at the top of the opening page. You will read about what some contend with every day and it's beyond sad. Thank goodness for the angels who are taking the little one.

I would think that the very best that can be done now is for someone to beg for money for the birth mother to have the operation. The world would be blessed by them. Hard but true.

Thank you for the link David. I just don't know how parents can do something like that. Thank goodness someone took Ela into her heart. I pray they raise all the money they need.

The birth mom in this case has already said she won't keep the appointment to get her tubes tied because she wants to wait until her puffy stomach goes down. Just an excuse. A week after the baby was born she has already had an "overnight visitor" and had a hangover this morning. It is so sad that she doesn't see what she is doing to herself and to all the babies she keeps having.

Barbara

Hey Barbara, how is the new family? And how is the biological mom?

Thanks for asking! The baby turned 2 months old Saturday and is growing like a weed (from 5 to 9 pounds). She is so cute and sweet! The family is doing great.

The biological mom did have her tubes tied (last week), which is good. She has a lot of decisions to make right now, as the money stops as of the end of this month. She doesn't have a car or job. She needs a lot of prayer. Partly for her physical safety (food, shelter), but also for her self-esteem, faith, etc.

We like her and have done a lot to help her, but we can't (and shouldn't) do everything for her. We believe it would be in the best interest of all concerned if she were to relocate away from the baby.

I need to get some new pictures of the baby. The one I am attaching is when she was 6 days old.

Aww, she is adorable!! I'm glad the family is doing well and it is working out.
The b-mom has my prayers for a better life for herself. I'm glad that she had surgery though.
