Happy baby, hard news

Our cute Malak is looking very nice in her new dress today! However, her mother got some hard news. The doctors found that one of Malak’s vocal cords is paralyzed, which explains her eating troubles. This means that she might not ever be able to talk.

When I came in today, her mother was crying and asking how Malak will be able to live if she never learns to talk. However, the doctors say that there is a possibility of treating the paralyzed cord. Malak herself didn’t seem too worried about it – she was very happy, and kept reaching out her hand, trying to grab my phone while I was taking pictures of her.

Please pray that the doctors will be able to treat her successfully, and also that God will comfort her worried mother.
