    Milestones

    Here at God's Littlest Angels, we love to celebrate milestones!    We anticipate and celebrate when an itty bitty is big enough and strong enough to return home with their families.  We're blessed to be able to witness first smiles and to listen as little ones find their voices.

    Oh Me, Oh My, Chicken Pox in our NICU! Prayers appreciated!

    The week was going pretty good.  The babies all seemed stable and growing.  Then I walked into the NICU yesterday morning and this little guy, Derlain, greeted me with Chicken Pox! He only had a few on his face and stomach but we were sure that is what he had and our pediatrician just came and verified it even though she didn't believe it at first!  So our NICU is under quarantine for now. Today, he has them all over him even up by his eyes!  So this morning when I went into ...

    Survive to Thrive-Story #10

    -Guest Blogger (Britany Smith-RN at GLA from 2012-2014)--I am so thankful that God has given me the opportunity to come back to GLA twice since leaving my position just over a year ago.  It is an absolute pleasure to be able to write another "Survive to Thrive" story. Amazing transformations such as this one, fill my heart with such joy and thankfulness for God's continual healing in the lives of so many children.  Some of you may remember a blog I wrote in 2014 named Angel Update...

  • NICU update for Baby M and Baby BT

      We are sad to tell you that Baby M lost the Battle after Fighting 9 days to Live Baby M and her twin sister came to us from Cazale and the Real Hope for Haiti Mission.  They were born premature at approximately 28 weeks gestation.  They were tiny at 1 pound 15 ounces each. One of the babies did not last long after they arrived at GLA.  We did everything that we knew to do for her but she was already not breathing on her own when she arrived. But Baby M was doing well. ...

  • Update on Little M

    M and her mother are doing well. She is well over 4 lbs now! M's Ng tube is out and she is taking full feeds by bottle.

  • Our Newest Assistance Angel

       Yesterday, this beautiful 3 lb 11.5 oz, now 9 day baby girl came to us with her mama for assistance. Little M was referred to us by another organization, her mother is just 16 years old and needs help to care for her first child. Her mother said Little M would not take the breast so she had not fed her for the first week of her life.
