NDSouth: Pretty in Pink

In this season of thanksgiving, we continue to count our blessings. One of the ways we like to count is in the smiles of each child in our care. We love the opportunity to watch a child blossom and thrive. To witness a child go from quiet, reserved, and tearful to a child full of joy, giggles, and laughter. We also love watching them improve after a life changing surgery.

Little Leila came to us just a few months ago with a broken heart. She came not only with a physically broken heart but an emotional one as well. When Leila first arrived she was scared, quiet, tearful, and blue due to her heart condition. After being with us just a few days her beautiful smile started to show and we were able to witness first hand a miracle happen. The miracle wasn't in the fact that she was healed but that she began to trust and to love.

As of a few weeks ago, Leila has yet another difference. She is pink! After receiving her much needed heart surgery she came home on Thanksgiving day. Our hope is not only that her physical heart will continue to heal but her emotional heart as well. We cannot wait to watch her continue to blossom in the months to come.
