Celeste: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week
Thirteen-month-old Celeste joined us at LWB’s Heartbridge Healing Home in January, following surgery on her fragile heart.
While she was still recovering in the hospital, it was discovered that Celeste also suffers from a gastrointestinal defect called “megacolon.” Despite the best efforts of the medical staff at Heartbridge Healing Home, Celeste has been plagued by repeated infections and has been unable to gain weight. This sweet baby girl will soon be moving to the hospital for a colostomy, which will hopefully give her digestive system a much needed rest and allow her to gain the weight she needs to heal and thrive.
Celeste will return to Heartbridge for careful post-operative care and plenty of TLC by our devoted staff of nannies. If you would like to be a part of Celeste’s story of hope and healing, we would welcome your one-time donation in any amount or monthly sponsorship of $50 per month (or $25 per month for a shared sponsorship). Sponsors will receive monthly updates and photos on beautiful Celeste’s progress.
