- [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.
