PBJ update

We got our monthly update of photos and medical info for PBJ. She is now 23 pounds and 31.9 inches tall. Still an itty bitty peanut for an 18-month old, but growing. It didn't have any info on her development, but the last I heard she was still not walking but was receiving physical therapy and gaining strength. Her case is still stuck and not in PGN at the moment. Maybe soon...

I keep going back and forth on whether to visit. I make up my mind to visit and then it looks like we might be bringing one home soon and I put it off. Then that gets delayed and I want to visit again. Every holiday that passes I say the same thing. This will be the last (fill in the blank) Day I have to spend without all my children together. If I only had a dollar for every time I have said those words!

PBJ is just gorgeous, Wendy. I just feel that PGN is going to open the floodgates and that PBJ is the first in line to go (and Ahren right behind her). Go on down with me this weekend.

PBJ is gorgeous, and looks to be doing so well!

My 21 mo. old son was home at 4.5 months, and at his 18 mo. checkup, was smaller than PBJ in both height & weight, and deemed completely healthy & normal (we won't talk about his ear issues!) It sounds like she is growing normally and doing fine!

I pray both your cases are released from the abyss soon so these precious children can be with the family that so obviously cherishes them.

PBJ is so darned cute! I'm sorry you stuck in this limbo. Praying like crazy for your kiddos.

Wendy - PBJ looks so healthy and so beautiful. Go Visit, if you can. I think seeing first hand how well is doing might ease your mind a bit. I pray both your babies come home soon!!!

I can't imagine what how you feel - I can just tell you that I pray for you and think of you guys every day. My heart breaks for you guys and for the babies. She looks good:) I am just believing that our prayers are reaching heaven and that a miracle is on the way:):)

She is so cute! You have a beautiful family. My daughter weighed less and was shorter at 18 months and very healthy, it sounds like she is a good size. I hope you can get your kids home soon!

Take care,
Donna
