Lacy Needs Our Help

Lacy is a beautiful, 18-month-old girl who loves to play ball, dance and twirl. But, her heart needs help.

She loves to dance, twirling around the room, waving her hands. Her foster parents are afraid she’ll gets dizzy, so they ask her to stop, but she just laughs and laughs and keeps dancing.

Lacy was born with a heart defect called ventricular septal defect (VSD) – also called a “hole in the heart.” Sometimes these holes can close on their own as the child grows, unfortunately Lacy’s VSD is too large and she needs to receive surgery soon.

If VSD is repaired early in life most people won’t have any significant long-term problems. If Lacy has surgery soon, not only will she have a better chance at a healthy life she will also have a better chance at adoption.

Please check out our 6th Annual ‘Born in my Heart’ Art Auction April 23-28th on eBay. Bidding on any of the wonderful donated items will help Lacy receive her heart surgery which will bring her one step closer to finding her forever family.

Laura Baldwin is the Medical Program Director for Love Without Boundaries. She lives in Texas with her three children, Elise (Vietnam), Grace (Vietnam), and Julie (Guangdong Province).
