We want to update you on baby Corey and his mom. For those who haven’t followed the story, baby Corey came into our hands after his birthmom panicked when she saw that he was born needing emergency medical treatment. The orphanage where he was left called us immediately to see if we could provide surgery, and thanks to our great supporters, Corey received the first stage surgery right away. Sadly, his mother ended up in the hospital in another province after she became extremely ill following the delivery.

Well, we have wonderful news to share right before Thanksgiving week. Corey’s mom was released from the hospital in Jiangxi yesterday and she was reunited with her baby boy. She would like to send her sincerest thanks to the “strangers across the world” who helped her son and allowed her a second chance to be with him.

Meeting her son again

Looking at the surgery site

Baby Corey, right where he belongs… in his momma’s arms

Corey will need 3 more surgeries in the future, and we will keep you posted on when they will be. THANK YOU for believing in our Unity Fund and for supporting families who have no ability to pay for the life saving surgeries their children need.

    I don’t think that thanks are necessary! It is what caring people do for each other. Please tell her that all she needs to do is care for that little baby.

    I am so happy to read that the mother has come back to be with her baby boy. Praise Jesus for small miracles. We need to broadcast stories like this worldwide, because the need for the help is so great. I know the mom must feel a great sense of relief to know her son was cared for by loving strangers around the world. What an awesome testimony of the father’s love for this mother and son.
