Deja Vu All Over Again

Late last night as I made a final check of my email, I was alarmed to read that the same childhood illness that affected Baby T at the orphanage has sneaked back into our agency's nursery, where our darling baby girl waits. I can't imagine this little face


marked with the offending pox. And try as I might, my arms can't stretch far enough or fast enough to reach her.

Jane, I'm praying that your daughter's guardian angels protect her and keep her safe!

Our Mass today, this feast day of the Name of Mary, was offered for you and your family. May your sweet precious one and all the rest be spared this illness.

That's so weird, the O in Ghana has the pox also. It must be 'that' time of year.
I hope your baby escapes the nasty little bug.
She is just too adorable!
Counting down the days here :)

I saw Merrily's post yesterday and thought...oh no, not again! I pray she isn't affected by it.

AWwww, my sister says that the pox scars give my baby's faces "character". They all have at least one leftover. I happen to agree.
Don't worry, I'll bet she'll be just fine.
