Newest Arrival

This is Fan, our newest arrival. He's just a few days old and comes from a remote area where good pediatric medical care is hard to get. We can tell that he has Down Syndrome and has been hospitalized with numerous IV treatments , but we don't have much of a diagnosis except what his orphanage reports about very poor feeding. He was not in good shape when he arrived late yesterday and we thought he might not live through the night. But today he seems slightly better. If he is still stable in another day or so we will consider transferring him to our main baby home in Beijing, where the staff has more experience and access to expert medical opinions. Keep the little guy in your prayers!
