Guess Who?

Remember ten-year-old Jie, who was SO sick that she could barely walk due to the seriousness of her unrepaired heart defect?   This child’s photos and story just broke my heart.


Look at her now . . . her nails and lips are a brilliant shade of pink–our very favorite color!  She was discharged on Tuesday from the hospital.  Can you believe it?  She is now totally healed!


We will now be pushing hard for her adoption paperwork to be submitted.  This beautiful child needs a family of her very own.  Look at that personality!!  She now looks and acts like a ten-year-old should. How happy that has made all of us to see!   Thank you to EVERYONE who helped fund her surgery and gave her this new chance at a healthy life.   Together we can truly transform lives.  We simply couldn’t do it without you!
