Very, very sad news!!

As you may remember from my earlier post, we have been excited about the new baby girl named Tamar arriving to our Bocachica neighbors, Marlaine and Antonio. On Sunday, Nov. 30, it turns out that Marlaine´s baby was delivered still-born. I don´t have all the details but it turns out that there was a doctor´s error in calculating the due-date and they didn´t send her soon enough to induce her labor (she never went into labor) and their baby girl died. A normal pregnancy lasts approximately 40 weeks and they calculate that Tamar was 44 weeks along! As you can imagine Marlaine and Antonio and the whole family are heartbroken and having a really hard time right now. PLEASE remember them in your prayers!!
