Some Updates

Jean Alex (from Haiti) is here for encephelocele repair. Alex had surgery at the beginning of May in California. He is back in WA with his host family and is doing great! You can see pictures of Alex at their blog by clicking HERE.

The ever adorable Sonel had surgery recently on his club feet. He is in Indiana staying with a wonderful family and is doing very well. He is just SO CUTE. I love his big contagious smile! You can check out their blog HERE.

We've been referred a new baby girl named Saintana. She is from Haiti (RHFH) and was born with an imperforate anus and a rectovaginal fistula. We have already had a doctor say yes to her care and will be working on getting hospital approval for her soon.

Sweet Schnider (in Ohio for cleft repair) goes in for surgery on his cleft palate soon. He has an appointment with his ENT on Wednesday, and surgery on Thursday. Please pray that his surgery goes well and his recovery time is short and as pain-less as possible!

Clepson, Martine, Britnie and Fedlene should all be ready to come to the US for surgery in the next few months. We are excited to see these children get the care they need and deserve.

As always, thank you so much for your interest and support as we work to help these beautiful children!
