Walking On Tiptoe

Having been abandoned as a baby because of problems with her feet, little Tamarah could only walk on tiptoe. Knowing how Tamarah faced a difficult future in their West Bank village, her adopted mom turned to prayer. Read Transcript


Reporter: TAMARA ALWAYS

WALKS ON HER TOES.

SHE WAS BORN WITH A

DISABILITY THAT AFFECTS HER

FEET.

WHEN SHE WAS ONE-WEEK-OLD,

HER MOTHER ABANDONED HER.

HEAN TOOK HER IN.

I LOVE HER.

I'M RAISING HER AS MY OWN

DAUGHTER.

AND I'M DOING EVERYTHING I

CAN TO GIVE HER A BETTER

LIFE.

SHE IS MY BABY.

IT'S THAT SIMPLE.

Reporter: SHE KNOWS HER

DAUGHTER NEEDS EXPENSIVE

SURGERY, BUT HEAN DOESN'T

HAVE A REGULAR JOB OR STEADY

INCOME.

I COULD DO CRAFTS AT

HOME, BUT I DON'T HAVE THE

MONEY TO GET STARTED.

Reporter: IN THE

KITCHEN, THEIR CUPBOARDS ARE

BARE.

SOMETIMES I THINK ABOUT

HOW DIFFICULT MY LIFE IS,

AND I DON'T WANT TO LIVE

ANYMORE.

BUT I GO TO CHURCH AND I

PRAY FOR MY DAUGHTER.

Reporter: HER BIGGEST

WORRY IS ABOUT WHAT WILL

HAPPEN TO TAMARA.

RIGHT NOW SHE IS TOO YOUNG

TO KNOW SHE IS DIFFERENT

FROM ANYONE ELSE.

HERE IN THE WEST BANK,

GROWING UP WITH JUST A MINOR

DISABILITY LIKE THIS ONE,

WOULD MEAN THAT IN SCHOOL

OTHER CHILDREN WOULD TEASE

AND MAKE FUN OF TAMARA EVERY

SINGLE DAY.

WHEN SHE GOT OLDER, IT WOULD

BE HARD FOR HER TO FIND WORK

OR GET MARRIED OR HAVE A

FAMILY OF HER OWN.

WHAT THIS PRECIOUS LITTLE

GIRL DOESN'T REALIZE, TODAY

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

GOING TO CHANGE HER LIFE

FOREVER.

"OPERATION BLESSING" PAID

FOR SURGERY TO FIX TAMARA'S

FEET.

AND WE BOUGHT HEAN ENOUGH

FOOD TO FILL HER CABINETS

AND DRAWS.

AND WE GOT HER SET UP WITH

EVERYTHING SHE NEEDS TO MAKE

JEWELRY AT HOME.

AND WE GAVE TAMARA A COZY

NEW BED AND BLANKETS SHE

LOVES.

JUST A FEW MONTHS AFTER HER

SURGERY, TAMARA WAS LEARNING

HOW TO RUN AND JUMP.

TAMARA IS DOING REALLY

WELL.

SHE WALKS AND JUMPS AND

DANCES A LOT.

AS A MOTHER, I AM VERY

EXCITED.

NO ONE CAN UNDERSTAND HOW

HAPPY I AM.

I THANK GOD FOR ANSWERING

OUR PRAYERS.

I ALSO THANK GOD FOR

"OPERATION BLESSING" AND

EVERYONE THAT HELPED ME.

GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
