Mrs. Fan took in an abandoned baby girl and named her Tong Tong. When the little girl became very ill as a toddler, Mrs. Fan was devastated. Would she lose her beloved daughter? Read Transcript


Terry: WHEN MRS. FONG

FOUND AN ABANDONED BABY

GIRL, SHE DIDN'T THINK TWICE

ABOUT TAKING HER HOME TO BE

HER OWN.

WHAT SHE DIDN'T KNOW WAS

THAT TONG-TONG HAD A HOLE IN

HER HEART.

IT WAS A SERIOUS CONDITION,

THAT ONLY GOT WORSE AS THE

TODDLER REACHED HER OLDER

YEARS.

I CRIED EVERY DAY FOR HER

BECAUSE SHE THREW UP ALL OF

THE TIME.

I DECIDED I WOULD DIE FOR

HER IF I HAD TO, SO HE COULD

LIVE.

Terry: MRS. FONG

EMBRACED HER ROLE AS A

SINGLE MOTHER.

SHE WORKED EXTRA HOURS AND

TOOK EXTRA JOBS TO RAISE

SURGERY FOR TONG-TONG.

BUT SHE NEVER HAD ENOUGH.

AND TONG-TONG SOON GOT TO

THE POINT WHERE IT WAS A

STRUGGLE FOR HER EVEN TO

BREATHE.

SHE WAS TOO WEAK TO

WALK.

AND SHE COUGHED ALL OF THE

TIME.

I FELT SO HOPELESS.

EVERY DAY I WAS AFRAID IT

MIGHT BE HER LAST.

AND I COULD NOT IMAGINE

LOSING HER BECAUSE I HAD PUT

EVERYTHING I HAD INTO HER.

SHE WAS MY LIFE.

Terry: MRS. FONG TOOK

TONG-TONG TO THE DOCTOR ONE

LAST TIME TO SEE IF ANYONE

WOULD SAVE HER SICK CHILD.

THE DOCTOR TOLD MRS. FONG

SHE SHOULD CONTACT CBN.

WHEN SHE DID, WE PROMISED TO

DO EVERYTHING WE COULD TO

KEEP TONG-TONG ALIVE, AND

THAT INCLUDED PAYING FOR

HEART SURGERY.

I TOLD TONG-TONG ALL

ABOUT CBN, AND SHE WAS SO

EXCITED, SHE QUICKLY TOLD

EVERYONE SHE MET ABOUT HOW

SHE WAS GOING TO HAVE

SURGERY.

Terry: THE SURGERY WAS

A HUGE SUCCESS.

AND THANKS TO THE

NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS WE

GAVE TONG-TONG, IN JUST ONE

WEEK SHE WAS DOING THINGS

SHE HAD NEVER BEEN ABLE TO

DO BEFORE.

NOW TONG-TONG CAN RUN.

I REMEMBER HOW HAPPY SHE WAS

THAT FIRST TIME.

SHE SCREAMED, "LOOK, MAMA, I

CAN RUN."

AND NOW SHE WON'T STOP

RUNNING.

THANK YOU, CBN, FOR SAVING

MY DAUGHTER.

YOU CHANGED BOTH OF OUR

LIVES FOREVER.
