Five-year-old Zuri was born with congenital heart disease. Her specific diagnoses are atrial septal defect (ASD), severe pulmonary hypertension (PH) and tricuspid regurgitation (TR). All this means that her heart condition is quite complex. Zuri has five siblings, one of whom passed away as an infant. As a newborn Zuri was very weak and kept in the hospital for three weeks. This was a heavy blow on the family’s small income which comes solely from the father doing migrant work. The next step in Zuri’s care is a heart catheterization procedure to determine the best course of surgical intervention for this sweet girl.
Back in August we shared about the Phillips family and their adoption of baby Andersen who has Down syndrome, club feet, and AVSD (no chambers in his heart). We are happy to report that they are home now, but still need funding for baby Andersen’s adoption. When sending your donation, please put “Phillips Family” in the memo. Please keep baby Andersen in your prayers as he’s quickly approaching a major surgery to re-build the missing chambers in his heart.
Every donation helps!
Room to Bloom’s mission is to promote the beauty of adoption and to ascribe dignity to people with Down syndrome and other special needs. We do this by partnering with organizations that are dedicated to orphan care and adoption advocacy, strengthening families who have children with special needs, and giving a voice to the vulnerable.
