Meet Wanting

Age: 9 months

Location: Baoding City, Hebei Province, China

Sponsored Treatment: Heart Surgery

Wanting is a precious little girl who was diagnosed with congenital heart disease soon after she was born. The news shocked her parents. They felt such pity for their infant daughter-sadness and helplessness overwhelmed them.

This loving family lives in a very rural area. Wanting's father does not have a stable job. His income is based upon finding odd jobs in order to support their daily needs. Wanting's mother cares for the children and aging grandparents. To further complicate matters, Wanting's father suffered a terrible head injury when working last year. He spent a lot of money for the necessary treatment, but hasn't fully recovered from the accident. They are in deep debt without even considering the cost of their baby's surgery.

When these distraught parents learned that the heart surgery Wanting needed would be at least $6,557 (USD), they couldn't comprehend how they would pay for it. The doctors advised them that if she was not able to receive the surgery soon, it would severely affect her health.

When CBN staff members heard about their situation, they were eager to provide assistance. With the help of CBN's Life-Changing Surgeries program, Wanting received a very successful surgery.

Wanting's father conveyed his sincere gratitude by saying, "Thank you for giving us the help to overcome this difficult time!"

And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. Hebrews 13:16 (NIV)
