Ji De, male, was born in May 2004, and was our first resident at BlueSky. He was born without an anus and suffered 21 days after birth without being able to have a bowel movement. He was finally brought to Beijing for surgery to route his large intestine through to his stomach, creating a colostomy. He will need to undergo 2 more stages of surgery once he is in a more stable condition. The first stage is to create the anus, after which we will have to continually dilate his anus to help the muscles develop. The final surgery will be to close the colostomy when he is able to use his anus on his own. We expect Ji De to be resident with us for about a year, and we will see him through all his surgeries.

Fu Kang, male, was born in November of 2002 with a congenital heart defect called Ventricular Septal Defect. He is under medication, and hopefully the opening in the dividing wall between the 2 lower chambers of the heart will close.
