A surprising update! :)

Her orphange decided to go ahead and have her surgery to repair her palate last April and seems to be doing well. J   We didn't know this until THIS MORNING!  We were totally shocked as this is VERY unusual.  They say it was repaired well but, of course that will have to be verified when we get her to a doctor here in the U.S. There are still atleast a couple of surgeries she will need in the future. BUT I am thankful & hopeful that atleast she wont need surgery within a couple months of coming home now. What a blessing! :) 

Below is the updated info we received:
