NDSouth: Happy Birthday, Asa!

It was one year ago we got the call asking if we could help with a newborn baby boy in need of emergency surgery.   We first met Asa at a crowded bus station on a busy, busy Friday evening in downtown Guangzhou.  It was close to midnight before the doctors were able to start what would be the first of three successful surgeries over the last 12 months.

How time flies!  A few days ago - one year and two haircuts later  - we celebrated our little man's first birthday - healed, healthy and ready to party!  A grand time was had by all, as you can see from the pictures below,

Excitement in the air!

"happy birthday to Asa.."

Asa learns the joy of chocolate cake!

..of course sharing with all of his brothers and sisters!

"Seconds, please!"



  1. Happy Birthday Asa!!!!! You are loved!
