Tian You still waiting for surgery date !

We are still waiting for the Johns Hopkins Hospital to confirm Tian You's appointment to see Dr Gearhart, following which we can make the travel arrangements. Tian You has been doing well lately (on prophylactic antibiotics), but we are very eager to send him to Dr Gearhart for surgery.
Thank you to all donors who have so kindly contributed to Tian You's medical fees! Thank you also to DR Gearhart who has been so kind to waive all his fees to treat Tian You. This little boy most definitely has touched the hearts of many. He has been an inspiration to all of us.

Tian You has a visa for travel !!

After weeks of preparing documentation for obtaining a US travel visa for Tian You and his caretaker QinQin, we are pleased to announce that approval has been given. Thank you US embassy in Beijing ! We are now full steam ahead with making arrangements for an appointment with Dr Gearhart at Johns Hopkins (another lengthy process), after which we can make flight arrangements. We have fundraised just enough to cover the deposit required by the hospital, and we wish to thank all of Tian You's donors from the bottom of our hearts. Several of you have been amazingly generous and we cannot thank you enough. He is one lucky boy!
As you can see from the photo, Tian You has been to the Great Wall. He is pictured with QinQin (pronounced chin-chin) on our yearly Blue Sky outing. QinQin is Tian You's main caretaker and a very dedicated staff. She is our manager at our medical unit. Picture taken in April, on a beautiful Great Wall day (45mins from our foster home).
