Heart Surgery Day

chandlerLove Without Boundaries of course began after we met one tiny baby in China who needed heart surgery, and for the last ten years we have continued helping children born with congenital heart disease.  We wanted to let you know that two of the babies from our Healing Homes program are having surgery on Wednesday in China.  We sure would appreciate every good thought for these two beautiful children.

Chandler came into our hands as a tiny infant, with a diagnosis of pulmonary atresia, ventricular septal defect, and patent ductus arteriosus.  That is a mouthful for one little baby girl, isn’t it?   She got stronger and stronger at the Anhui Healing Home.  We are so grateful to all of the wonderful people who stepped forward to fund her operation.  She was admitted to the hospital last week, but then her surgery was postponed when the head of cardiac surgery was called out of town.  We decided to wait until he returned, and now Chandler is scheduled for Wednesday morning.

It was my first adoption trip, and I had a thousand thoughts running through my mind, from excitement to fear to exhaustion to anticipation.

Reunited

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.

Five Little Words

I love words. I love reading books that are so well written that the words take your breath away, and you have to go back and read them again so they’ll settle even deeper in your heart. So it was when I read the following words from Jeff Gammage’s book “China Ghosts”, on what happened when he adopted his daughter and walked into her orphanage for the first time:

“They don’t tell you that the children of the orphanage are all coming home with you. That these kids, with their wan smiles and growling stomachs, are going to follow you across the ocean, move into your house, inhabit your dreams”.
