Surgery for Antonia

This is our starfish Antonia that we are helping to sponsor while she is in foster care in China. This is her before lip surgery.
The other day she went for a visit with a surgeon in China. They kept her and performed her lip repair that night!! They did have to shave her head!

Please pray for little Antonia. I can't imagine her going through surgery without a Mom to care for her. It makes me think of when Graeme went through this same surgery in China and I was not there to care for him. Bless her little heart!

She sleeps. She will stay in the hospital for three days. I can't wait to see how her lip looks when they remove her bandages. For more information on how you can help the Starfish babies, click on Antonia's picture on my sidebar.

Now I lay me down to sleep...

What a precious child. Praying for Antonia's recovery and comfort. Praying for someone to love on that precious baby so she doesn't have to hurt alone.

That's so awesome that you get that much information. I would love to sponsor a child through that organization!
