Leaving for America !!! Finally !

July 23rd ! Tian You and QinQIn (his caretaker) will leave for Baltimore ! His surgery is scheduled for July 31st ! After such a long wait, things are now progressing fast.

While in Baltimore, Maryland (where Johns Hopkins Hospital is located), Tian You and QinQin will be taken care of by 2 wonderful ladies. Norah Molnar (our former volunteer team member of Blue Sky when she lived in Beijing, and who has since moved back home with her family), has been instrumental in fundraising for Tian You, and is assisting with many other arrangements. Lisa Fickenscher, has kindly offered to open her home for them to stay and to be on hand to help them throughout their stay in America. Thank you so much to these 2 wonderful ladies who are devoting so much time and effort to helping Tian You.

We are SO thankful to the folks at UNITED AIRLINES who have kindly sponsored 2 free tickets ! And of course, we are ultimately thankful to Dr JOHN GEARHART who will be saving Tian You's life. With everyone's help, this little guy has a chance to live a long and prosperous life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
