SPIRITUALLY ADOPTIVE PARENTS!!!
 
Your spiritually adopted baby is at 24 weeks, and its miraculous growth continues. Baby is about the size of a head of romaine lettuce. During this time, antibodies from the mother are moving to baby. Baby's skin is protected by a creamy, white substance, and its lungs are producing another substance that is vital to baby's ability to breathe after birth. Sudden, loud noises can trigger a blink-startle response in baby. In fact, exposure to loud noises can be harmful to baby and cause excessive swallowing, increased heart rate, and prolonged active movement. Your daily prayers for baby and parents are critical. Stay vigilant! Only 98 days to birth!
