Six months ago, this little 5yr.old girl lay in a crib in an EE orphanage. She was malnourished, painfully thin, sores all over her little body, bumps on her head from banging it against the bars of a crib, drugged, and completely out of it. She weighed only 16 lbs.
Now look at her!! She has gone from actually being a baby who could hardly sit up, to a thriving precious little girl who now has a twinkle in her eye.
Being confined to a crib for 5 yrs. left her very frail and weak. She could put no pressure on her legs at all. But now she gets up and can stand on her own for afew seconds and then blops back down again. She tries so hard. The little girl that had been written off as being useless, a burden to society, without any abilities, with no hope at all, is proving them all wrong. She is showing them that with a whole lot of love, good nutrition, sunshine and fresh air..........anything is possible. Her mom said people tell them all the time that, "Hailee is so blessed that you rescued her."
Hailee's mom, just like me, knows the truth here........WE are the ones who've been blessed!!
