CHINA :: ORPHAN UPDATE - Hua, then and now

Here is our handsome boy, Hua, from Love Without Boundaries. Once a tiny premature baby, he has grown into a healthy almost-3-year-old.

Hua was born prematurely during the incredibly harsh winter of January 2008 in the Anhui Province of the People’s Republic of China. He weighed only 1kg (2.2 lbs) when he was born and was in need of serious medical treatment so that he could learn to eat on his own, gain weight and thrive.

The Red Thread Promise teamed with Angel Covers and Love Without Boundaries to provide Hua the intensive care hospitalization and round-the-clock care he needed to survive. Hua remained in critical condition for several months, receiving special formula and specialized care that our partnership was able to provide.

Due to this early intervention, Hua thrived. He learned to suck on his own and take all feedings by bottle. He was eventually released from the hospital and has been growing like a weed ever since.

His birthday is coming up in January 2011 where he will celebrate in the orphanage (the actual date is unknown). Thank you to everyone who supported him in his infancy. He is going to make a great addition to a special family some day.

The Red Thread Promise is proud to provide the medical treatment that these little ones need— procedures and care that they would not otherwise have access to. We hope that you will find it in your heart to support our mission.
