A little girl is born!

Isabel Mucun brought her three day old baby to visit us. This is very much against the customs practised here in the highlands. Usually , the mother does not leave the house for 15 days with the baby.
Isabel's little girl weighs 6lb and is very tiny. She seems very alert and in good health.
We gave Isabel clothing, diapers and blankets for the baby. She asked us for formula and we said no, she is breastfeeding and not in need of formula.

Isabel has had three other children removed from her custody because of mistreatment. We hope that this little one will be luckier.
