10 months old - Referral Day!! December 08, 2006

Today is the day that we learn of a dear little boy in Russia.

Weight 8,545 grams        18 lbs. 13 oz.

Height  and head circ. are not given.

When we did the metric conversions it was even more obvious then in the grams listed on his file. Our little guy only gained 2 oz. from 9 to 11 months. I think we got him just in time. It seems his body was slowing down. Maybe he was just getting enough food to sustain. His diagnosis came with Rickets but that is par for the course when you aren't taking in enough food!
