Haley from our Huainan foster care program is so happy to show off her beautiful new smile! She was born with a bilateral cleft lip and was a resident of the Anhui Cleft Healing Home (ACHH) while awaiting her surgery. The folks at ACHH thought of her as the “big sister” of the babies because she was the oldest one in residence. They are certainly going to miss her cheerful personality but are so pleased to see her moving on to foster care.
Haley is now nine months old and is growing stronger every day. With help, she can take a few steps. Haley really reminds her caretakers of a little dancer as she carefully watches her feet, trying to figure out how to make them move properly. Surely before too long her foster family will be very busy chasing Haley as she dances around all on her own!
