Other changes, such as disclosure of a name for defamation or the protection of witnesses, can only be undertaken through a judicial process.

Therefore, Gail had shortness of breath and had difficulty breathing (stopping during the breathing process). The first child of the family is 14 days in the Neonatal ICU of Santa Isabel and 21 days in the Intermediate Care Unit (ICU) of the same hospital. Now, at home, he can breathe on his own. “He’s getting smarter and healthier every day. Thank God. For a premature baby, he’s very smart and charismatic,” says the mother.

And the name chosen for him has everything to do with the path of the young man’s energy. “When we found out we were pregnant, we wanted a short name to stay away from the orthodoxy. When we found Gayle, it was a quick decision. When looking for meaning, we thought it had everything to do with him. It means ‘protected, beautiful and generous.’ ”, Concludes Andreza.
