Meet Ozias...or Zito!
He is quite the cutie but has an attitude as well. He speaks wonderful Portuguese and knows exactly what he wants. We'll see what he thinks in a few days, since I'm sure he'll quickly grow out of the Bercario room...it's not a very big space for a 2 year old who is used to running wherever he wants in the community.
Please pray for his adjustment. He has already bonded quite well with the tias, but seems to still be a bit timid when it comes to white people. Also, thank God for the fact that he is healthy, chubby, and happy!
As for a chicken pox update for you...we are on kid number 7 in the Baby House with chicken pox now. Some of them are quite happy to continue on playing with an occasional stop to itch...others are absolutely miserable with spots on every inch of their bodies' and one is quite sick with pneumonia as well (not breathing great and requiring intervention every 4-6 hours). Please keep praying for them, especially for the few vulnerable kids we have...those who are HIV+ or on tuberculosis treatment. We are all praying for and believing for a wall of protection around them even as they live among all the others! Pray with us please!
