A Heartbridge Graduate

Please celebrate with us today as little Yan graduates from our Heartbridge program and returns to her orphanage in preparation for her upcoming adoption! We are so very happy for Yan that she will soon have a family of her own to love her!

Here is a photo of her as a newborn when our Medical Director and I first met her in her orphanage where she was being kept in an incubator due to her size and her special need:

Yan had anal atresia surgery and needed post op care to keep her incision clean as she healed and to be sure that she did not develop any post op difficulties. She was transferred to Heartbridge in mid June, 2007 so that she could receive this one on one care to help her recover and grow strong and healthy. Under the loving care of the nannies at Heartbridge, she has done very well.

Here is a recent photo of our little graduate:

Isn’t she adorable!

Thank you so much to our sponsors! Because of you, she is now healthy and will soon have what we hope for all of the kids we help – a family!

Because every child counts,

Lori Dubbs

Heartbridge Coordinator
