- [Reporter] Mrs. Lee hadalmost given up her dream

of having a child when oneof her friends told her

about an abandoned child she'd found

on the side of the road.

- [Translator] When he looked at me,

it was almost like he was saying

please be my mommy and take me home.

- [Reporter] So Mrs. Lee andher husband adopted the child

and named him Ming Xing

- [Translator] MingXing means bright star.

He was a superstar in my heart

and I wanted his future tobe full of hope and light.

- [Reporter] But soon after,Ming Xing had a heart attack.

A doctor said he had a hole in his heart

and needed surgery or he'd die.

- [Translator] I feltlike my shooting star

was losing its light.

My tears were like a broken beads,

but Ming Xing just took hishands and wiped my tears away.

- [Reporter] Then, Mr. Lee had a

head injury and couldn't work.

That meant Mrs. Lee had to takeover

responsibility for everything,

including saving for surgeryand taking care of Ming Xing.

- [Translator] I feel like Ihad to watch him all the time,

or he would have heart attack and die.

- [Reporter] The hole inMing Xing's heart grew,

and when he tried to run, he fell.

- [Translator] His face wasblue and his mouth was purple.

He began to gasp and start to suffocate.

- [Reporter] From then on Ming Xing

wasn't allowed to play with anyone.

His only friend was a toy monkey.

Mrs. Lee went door todoor asking for money,

but never made or collectedenough for surgery.

- [Translator] I was afraidthat one day the hole

would get so big that itwould be like a mouth,

and swallow up his heart.

- [Reporter] Then she heardabout CBN and wrote us a letter.

- [Translator] It said, If you don't

help Ming Xing he might die.

You are his only hope.

- [Reporter] We quicklyresponded and setup free surgery.

- [Translator] Now thehole in his heart is gone,

and he has a new life.

He's completely recoveredand happy every day,

and his eyes are full of light.

Thank you for giving MingXing a bright future.

As bright as the start.

It's all I ever wanted for him.
