The biggest reason for requesting an expedite is our new daughter... She was the first child I laid eyes on during our trip in April. Little Miss is an incredibly special little girl, who is the same age as Laila and has thalassemia just like her brothers and sister. What makes her situation even more serious is her heart. Her heart has a couple of issues that come from a life of being undertransfused. While she waits for us in China, she continues to not receive the level of transfusions she needs which places more stress on her heart and her body from the lack of blood oxygen. Please pray for her health, for her safety, and for God's continued provision in quick paperwork and funding.
We are not allowed to share pictures from her CCCWA file, but since I have met her I have some of my own!!! ;)
