It's a Girl!!

On Wednesday, November 12, 2008, one of our young ladies gave birth to a healthy baby girl.  The mother, fifteen year-old Melissa went into labor early Wednesday morning and the baby was born a few hours later by caesarian section.  Both the mother and baby returned from the hospital on Friday afternoon and are doing very well. 

 

Melissa is young but has showed that she is ready and willing to be and act as the mother to her new baby girl.  At first she was a little hesitant, but quickly and willingly took up her motherly responsibilities and is caring for the baby with the help of our staff.  It took her a few days to come up with a name that she liked, but on Monday decided on the name Maria Guadalupe. 

 

Please pray for Melissa as she becomes accustomed to being a mother and pray that she and Maria would remain healthy.  Below you will see a few pictures that were taken on Wednesday morning.
