Hope: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week

This is Baby Hope. She is only one month old and has had to fight very hard to make it this far! When she was found abandoned she was bruised and very, very jaundiced. She was also found to have a colorectal defect and needed to have surgery to install a colostomy right away to save her life. She needs to have additional surgery for her colorectal defect, and her colostomy isn’t functioning properly. In a few weeks, Hope is scheduled to be moved to Shanghai for this care when the top colorectal surgeon in the world will be at the hospital during a medical exchange.

Hope is very sweet-natured despite all she has been through but she still has a long road ahead of her. This first surgery will help Hope feel better start to grow and thrive. Please visit Hope’s sponsor page if you would like to help donate to her medical fees.
