Sweet Shiro was born with a cleft lip and palate. He was admitted to our Zhengzhou Care Center when he was four months old. Upon his arrival, he was diagnosed with cleft lip and was able to receive the nutrition he needed to thrive. Ten months after his arrival, Shiro had gained the necessary weight to have his first cleft surgery!
Since then, Shiro has recovered well and is an active little boy! He is playful and interacts well with the other children in his room. At 18 months old, he is walking, running, and loves to throw a ball. The first word his nannies and the medical staff use to describe him is “loveable!”
This month, would you please join us in praying for Shiro? Pray for the medical staff as they prepare for his next surgery. Pray also that the surgery will be successful with a quick recovery time! We are so thankful that Shiro has been thriving under our care and we pray that he will continue to grow into a strong and healthy little boy. We pray, too, that he will soon know the love and care of a forever family!
+Father, set the lonely in families. We pray that more parents will learn about cerebral palsy and move toward adopting children with this condition during CP Awareness Month (March).
+Bless and anoint the staff at Show Hope. Give the interns and staff of the Red Bus Project energy for their spring tour, launching on 3/16. Guide their conversations with students as they learn about adoption and orphan care!
+God, provide encouragement to families who are pursuing adoption. We pray that time spent waiting allows them to prepare themselves to care for their children’s needs once they are safely at home.
+Father of all mercy, we pray that you will use the Empowered to Connect conference in San Antonio and in the Simulcast locations across the country on April 10-11 to bring deep healing and hope to children and their families.
+Lord over all, we ask that you will bless the efforts of all advocacy events who are using their time and talents to benefit the world’s waiting children.
