Jian Gong is from WuQiu orphanage. He has clubbed feet and a congenital hand disorder called arthrogryposis. We saw him at the orphanage rolling on the ground for mobility. He is 7 years old, and has been growing up amongst mentally handicapped children. He appears to be intelligent, but has never been educated, let alone seen a television. We decided to bring him to Beijing to see what can be done for his feet and hands, as well as to provide him with a more stimulating environment and some education. Currently he does not have a wheelchair of his own, and we need to find one that fits him. In one photo on our mission page, he is using Dang Qian's wheelchair (with her permission of course). Update: Jian Gong has had surgery on both his feet and one knee. He may need a second surgery to complete the process of repositioning his feet and enabling him to walk. His feet are currently in a cast, and this gets changed every few weeks. He is pictured above in an adult wheelchair donated by Pfizer, but we are working on getting him a child wheelchair soon. He will also start his lesson plan in May with our new teacher on staff.
|Tian Long Long is a 4 year old boy from HouMa in Shanxi province. He has already had surgery for spina bifida as a baby, and does not have any control over his bowels or urine. We helped him get surgery to repair his clubbed feet and he is recovering well. He is so sweet and bubbly.|
|This is Tian You - our youngest baby arrival at 5 days old ! He was born on April 6th 2005, and found on the streets of HouMa, Shanxi in a box. He was picked up and brought to a local hospital that strongly advised he be taken to a large hospital for care, as his condition was too severe for them to deal with. He was born with bladder exstrophy (bladder is outside of the body), imperforate anus, and is missing a kidney. He is our most severe medical case to date, and he will need several surgeries over time. Upon arrival in Beijing, we rushed him straight to the paediatric hospital and his open wound was cleaned up. He is now awaiting for surgery to replace the bladder back in the body, but is generally eating and sleeping well.|
