April Prayer Focus: Shirley

March 31, 2014 | Posted In Care Centers | Share

ShirleyShirley was 3 months old when she was admitted to our Jiaozuo Special Care Center earlier this year. The medical staff diagnosed her with a congenital heart defect and determined that she would need heart surgery. Thanks to the loving generosity of our sponsors and donors, Shirley was able to receive the life-saving surgery that will allow her the very real opportunity to grow and thrive!

Shirley is so inquisitive and loves to look around the room with her big, beautiful eyes. She is such a happy, easy-going baby girl! She loves lullabies and being in the arms of her nannies and nurses. Our hope is that her heart surgery will enable her to grow stronger with each passing day!

Please pray for Shirley, that her recovery from heart surgery is smooth and successful. Please also pray for her medical team, that God will grant them wisdom and clarity as they care for her specific needs. Thank you for joining us in prayer for this precious baby girl. Our sponsors and donors enable us to look at her future with great HOPE!
