Baby Amie

Baby Amie has been in our Infant Feeding  Program since she was 2 weeks old. When she was born she weighed 3.7 pounds. We followed her in our feeding program to make sure she was gaining enough weight for surgery. She had to make it to 8.8 pounds in order to qualify and by May 30th she was 9 pounds! She had a sucessful surgery and went home with her mom a few days later.

Some days working in Africa is frustrating and discouraging but then seeing sucessful surgeries like Amie's makes the sweat, tears and long hours worth it!
