Saving “Daddy’s Girl”

When a simple cold turned to pneumonia, Shea Yee’s parents were devastated to learn she had a hole in her heart. Her father knew he could never make enough money in time to save her, but how could he say goodbye to his “daddy’s girl”? Read Transcript


MR. SHAY LOVED HIS DAUGHTER,

SHINYE, THE SECOND HE SAW

HER.

SHE WAS ADORABLE.

I THOUGHT TO MYSELF, I WANT

TO GIVE MY BABY A GOOD LIFE

AND BE THE BEST FATHER I CAN

BE.

Terry: THE SHAYS NEVER

GUESSED IN JUST SIX MONTHS,

SHINYE WOULD BE FIGHTING FOR

HER LIFE.

SHE GOT A VERY BAD COLD,

SO WE TOOK HER TO THE LOCAL

HOSPITAL, WHERE THE DOCTOR

SAID SHE HAD A HOLE IN HER

HEART AND NEEDED SURGERY.

I WAS SO SCARED FOR MY

DAUGHTER THAT I ALMOST

FAINTED.

Terry: MR. SHAY GOT A

JOB AT A ROCK QUARRY WORKING

12 HOURS A DAY TO RAISE

MONEY FOR SURGERY FOR

SHINYE.

EVERY DAY BEFORE I WENT

TO WORK, I KISSED MY BABY

GIRL GOOD-BYE.

IT WAS SO HARD TO LEAVE

HER.

SOMETIMES I COULD BARELY GO

ON.

BUT I DID ANYWAY.

I FELT LIKE IF MY DAUGHTER

DIED, IT WOULD BE MY FAULT.

Terry: THEN SHINYE GOT

PNEUMONIA.

SHE COUGHED ALL OF THE

TIME.

AND SHE COULD NOT EAT OR

SLEEP.

IT BROKE MY HEART.

AND I WISHED THAT SOMEHOW I

COULD TAKE HER PAIN UPON

MYSELF.

I HELD MY DAUGHTER, AND I

SAID, I'M SORRY, MY BABY.

I DO NOT HAVE THE MONEY

YET.

BUT I WILL KEEP TRYING.

Terry: SECRETLY

MR. SHAY WORRIED HE WOULDN'T

MAKE ENOUGH MONEY IN TIME TO

SAVE HIS DAUGHTER'S LIFE.

SO IN DESPERATION, THE

COUPLE BROUGHT SHINYE TO A

HOSPITAL IN THE CITY, WHERE

THEY BEGGED FOR HELP.

A DOCTOR PUT THE COUPLE IN

CONTACT WITH CBN.

WE SAID WE WOULD BE GLAD TO

HELP PAY FOR SHINYE'S HEART

SURGERY.

I TOLD HER, YOU ARE GOING

TO BE HEALTHY!

YOU ARE GOING TO LIVE.

Terry: A DOCTOR

REPAIRED THE HOLE IN

SHINYE'S HEART, AND SHE

RECOVERED QUICKLY.

TO CELEBRATE, HER PARENTS

JUST THREW HER A BIG PARTY.

SHE GAINED TWO POUNDS IN

JUST ONE MONTH.

NOW SHE SLEEPS WELL.

AND SHE LAUGHS A LOT, TOO.

I USED TO THINK THERE WAS

NO LOVE IN THIS WORLD, BUT

WHEN CBN HELPED US,

EVERYTHING CHANGED.

IT WAS LIKE THEY WERE FROM

HEAVEN.

NOW I'M THE HAPPIEST FATHER

IN THE WORLD.

THANK YOU FOR GIVING MY

DAUGHTER A NEW LIFE.

WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOUR

LOVE.
