Kenley: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week

Kenley was born prematurely, and weighed only 1 kg, or 2.2 pounds, at the time of her birth. We can only guess that her birth family could not afford the medical care that Kenley needed, and she was abandoned at a local hospital.

After some time in the hospital, Kenley was moved to an orphanage in Anhui Province. The orphanage then called LWB to see if we had room in one of our healing homes, and a few days later Kenley arrived at our Heartbridge Healing Home.

Weighing just 1.7 kg, or 3.75 pounds, she is a tiny preemie. Kenley also has a couple of mild heart defects called PDA and PFO, which are holes in the heart that normally close right after birth. With Kenley’s early entrance into the world, this comes as no surprise, and we expect that these defects will close on their own.

This tiny little love is a fighter! If you’d fight by her side, please consider joining her team. Kenley needs sponsors of $50/month or $25/month for a shared sponsorship.
