China: Orphan's Heart Surgery

For the first time in her three years, Qing Qing is finally sleeping (In her PJs at right). A series of infections over the past six months delayed her critical heart surgery. Once during this wait, her heart just gave out - Quin Quin nearly died. But finally last week, little Quin Quin was strong enough to have the first of the two operations she needs. Since the day she was delivered to the orphanage, her blue colored skin told the caregivers that this little girl was not getting enough oxygen. The lack of oxygen was created by a severe heart condition that made everything difficult for the orphaned baby, even falling asleep.
