Lindsey: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week
It has been over six weeks since we have had a new baby arrive at our Anhui Cleft Healing Home (ACHH), and so we are especially excited to introduce you to Lindsey! Lindsey is a beautiful baby girl who was born with a unilateral cleft lip and palate. She is two months old and weighs just over eight pounds. She appears quite healthy which is such a wonderful surprise during winter which can be so difficult for our fragile cleft babies. She looks so relaxed in Paddy’s arms on the day of her arrival at ACHH…could she be smiling already? Someone must have told her how well she will be loved by her new nannies.
We anticipate that Lindsey will need several months at ACHH where she will be patiently fed nutritious formula by our ACHH caregivers. When she weighs over five kilograms (11 pounds), she will be ready for her life-changing cleft lip surgery! Then she will receive post-operative care with us until she is ready to graduate. Lindsey (seen below as a newborn) is in great need of monthly sponsors to help provide her with excellent care before and after surgery.
If you would like to help Lindsey, please go to her sponsor page. We can’t wait to see the many smiles that are sure to come!
