That was written almost exactly three years ago, and we really have watched the unfolding of her miracle. You should read her Amazing Story if you haven't already; it's a good one!
She had a scary start; arriving into our care aged almost two months old, weighing less than 6 lbs, and needing urgent medical treatment. She was in a serious condition and needed surgery that she was considered too frail to survive.
It truly was a miracle that she survived surgery that August, and recovered from it, despite a collapsed lung and extremely weak state.
At the end of September 2012, Annabel was released from the hospital and we finally got to meet her. She was still very weak, but gradually gained weight and strength. We got to see her sweet little smile...
From tiny, fragile baby to running/laughing/playing three-year-old; what a transformation!
