Many of you have gotten to know and grown to adore our precious gem - our Ruby- at New Day North. She truly is a lovely little jewel.
Ruby is about to celebrate her first birthday, but you wouldn't guess that she is so old when you see her for the first time. She is a tiny little one - weak and frail and so sick.
We worried about Ruby since the first time we met her, soon after her arrival to the orphanage earlier this Autumn. She suffers from GI issues and has trouble keeping anything down... it's a challenge to keep this lovely little lady nourished and strengthened but our nannies and the medical staff at the orphanage are working tirelessly (actually, they're really tired) to keep her stable.
It's a miracle, really. Ruby is alive, she has managed to gain bits of weight here and there, and we have watched her personality unfold bit by bit. She babbles and she smiles. What more could we ask for?
Ruby has a long ways to go before she is strong and healthy. We don't know what's next for her, there are lots of questions and unknowns, but we do know one thing for sure.... She is loved.
A ruby is a precious gem, and our Ruby is indeed the definition of her name. She is precious, valuable and worthy. Our hope and prayer is that she will know her worth and her preciousness... that she will know how much she is loved.
