Gracie Update

Gracie is 9 Months Old

I received my first sponsor update on Gracie, the happiest baby in the world. She’s getting so big! I miss her so much.

"On November 24th Gracie had heart surgery. The two ½ hour surgery was successful and she has recovered very quickly. She has recovered so quickly that she is being released from the hospital today.

Gracie's nanny wrote this update.
Coming to us recently from another orphanage, Gracie is a beautiful little girl with big eyes, porcelain skin, and a sweet smile. She suffers from a congenital heart disease, but her surgery on November 24 went very well, and we're confident that she will fully recover. Gracie has done so well since coming to the foster home. She gained 1.2 kg in a little over a month, and she's learned to roll over and hold her head up since coming to the foster home. She sucks her fingers in a very cute way, and she loves being held. She always coos and gives such beautiful big smiles. We're thrilled to see the progress she's made in just a few weeks, and we can't wait to see what she accomplishes in the future!"
