Happy Birthday Ruth Nothando! My sweet little miracle turns 3 this month! Although we don't know the exact date, we know when we found her she was about 4 months old and, estimate her birthday to be sometime the beginning of September. This little girl who wasn't given a name because she was assumed dead is alive and strong. The name we chose for her is Ruth, meaning "compassionate friend" and Nothando, meaning "loved by God". I am sure she will grow each year to become more and more of both of those things. And that is a reason to celebrate!
