From My Mom's Blog

Okay, I totally stole this from my mom, but thought maybe some of my reader's would be interested, too.

" This precious 14 month old baby Yu is in urgent need of heart surgery. Love Without Boundaries is trying to save her life. She needs $8,500 raised for the complex surgery necessary to save her life (I'm always amazed at how little it costs compared to the same surgery here in the states. . .)

As of this evening, they need only $2,369 more to make the arrangements for Yu's surgery. I've fallen in love with this precious baby girl with her blue little lips and fingers and tears in her eyes. If you can find any extra $$ to contribute for her surgery, please help her. Please see the link for her sponsorship page below.& if for any reason that link doesn't work, just type in Click on "sponsor a child" and then click on "sponsor a child for surgery." You'll find Yu's picture in the "urgent need" category.Thank you, friends, for helping her in any way that you can.& for all of you bloggers, if you could share her picture and info on how to help.

For those who don't know, my family has adopted three beautiful, sweet girls (my sisters, Bella's "fun aunts") from China over the past few years. My family is very compassionate in helping the children in their orphanages. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Thank you for helping to spread the word about Baby Yu's need. She is such a precious baby girl, and it breaks my heart when I think of the children who are sick and sometimes dying with no mommy or daddy to find them medical care and to comfort them.

Last I checked, I think they were down to $1920 needed for them to do her surgery. Every $$ will help bring her closer to her life-saving surgery, and that will help bring her closer to the opportunity to be adopted and have a family of her own.

Thank you so much for trying to help her!

Love you,

Update - they now need "only" $1,855. Any donation will help.

Love you!

Just joking...I think it is awesome that you put this on your blog too because this is such a good cause. Poor little baby :(
