he had just begun to smile...
my daughter charity rescued a dying baby, "lexus", from a very depressed area of manila two weeks ago. he was 6 pounds and is 6 months old. constant nursing and feeding and loving and sleepless nights by the caregivers brought lex to the point where he felt well enough to smile...a tentative, darling little smile.
suddenly, respiratory distress...he couldn't breathe...charity rushed him to a hospital where they take "charity" cases. how fitting.
lex is fighting for his life. on iv antibiotics. some signs of heart issues. up and down, every hour an unknown.
little boy, i pray you make it. the world wouldn't be the same without that smile!
lex lived. his forever family found him, and he now is living in australia with them, growing tall and strong.
