Phillip Andrew Wood

This precious baby is named for Phillip Wood, our nephew Steve McCormack’s roommate at Oklahoma Christian University. Baby Phillip was born at the hospital on Feb 20 2014 and weighed a tiny 1.9 kilos. He was abandoned when his mom said she had to go out for a while and never returned. Phillip then spent two months gaining weight at the hospital. On May 8 we were able to bring Phillip home to Neema House.

He is about 2.5 kilos now, about 5 pounds.

Orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they’re not real before you hold them in your arms. But once you do, everything changes.
