CBN.com —For 20 years, Mr. and Mrs. Wen wanted to have a baby. They tried everything their doctor suggested, but were never able to conceive.
“I was so sad—especially when I saw other parents with their children,” remembers Mrs. Wen. “But my husband and I prayed about it for a long time and decided that maybe God had a different plan for us.”
Then one day Mr. Wen heard crying coming from a box on the side of the road. As he got closer, he could see that someone had abandoned a baby. When he looked inside the box, he knew why. The baby girl had a cleft lip. Mr. Wen took her home and named her Jia Lin which means “Beautiful Jade.” The Wens wondered if this was God’s answer to their prayers.
“I fell in love with Jia Lin the minute I saw her,” says Mr. Wen. “And I knew that if my wife and I did not take care of her, she would die. We did not have any idea what to do about Jia Lin’s cleft lip, but we were going try our best to save her.”
The Wens found out that the surgery their daughter needed would cost $1,300 dollars. Mr. Wen works in construction and only makes $150 dollars a month. So, the couple wasn’t sure how they could ever pay for surgery. Then a neighbor told them that CBN had helped his son, who had also been born with a cleft lip.
“I did not know whether or not CBN would be able to help us, too but I just prayed that God would have compassion on us,” Mr. Wen shares. “Then I called CBN.”
CBN arranged free cleft lip surgery for Jia Lin that completely transformed her face and her future. Today, she is perfectly healthy and can eat, smile and laugh just like other baby girls.
Says Mr. Wen, “We thank God for hearing our prayers and sending CBN to help our little Jia Lin.”
“I never thought there could be someone that really cared about what we were going through,” adds Mrs. Wen. “But you did. You showed us God’s great love. Thank you for saving Jia Lin. Now, she will have a beautiful life.
