Remember this sick little girl?
Last October and November Bianka was very sick. At one point we were told by the doctors that she surely wouldn’t make it through the night.
She made it through that night, and the next and the next! She made it and when I came home after a short trip to the States in mid November she had been released from the hospital!
Several weeks later Bianka got sick again. She was still weak from her last illness and her body was not able to fight the vomiting and diarrhea that she had picked up. Once again I feared for Bianka.
Thankfully, Real Hope For Haiti offered their help. Bianka, along with 3 other sick children were taken to stay in their clinic and receive much needed medical care.
The children ended up staying for several weeks and were all nursed back to health by the loving staff in Casale.
Yesterday after unpacking a bit at my house I headed over to the orphanage to visit the kids. One of the first faces that greeted me was little Bianka. Chubby, smiling and even showing off by standing up for me, Bianka was every bit the miracle that I hoped and prayed for. While sitting and cuddling her I calculated in my head what her age was now. That’s when we realized that very day was Bianka’s first birthday!
What a sweet day to be holding such a precious blessing.
Happy Birthday Bianka!
