Update on Dev...

I have some exciting news regarding Dev, a very sweet two-year-old girl with a heart defect, who I met at New Life orphanage in Haiti about three months ago. I previously blogged about her and you can read the post by clicking here. The exciting news is this: in just over an hour Dev will be undergoing open-heart surgery to fix her PDA (persistent ductus arteriosus) defect as well as remove a subaortic membrane. For months now people have been working and praying to get her to the USA for surgery. Not only have medical people been trying to find a way to make this possible, but her dad has also sacrificed so much to try to make this work. He spent weeks at the New Life clinic, waiting for an answer, meanwhile taking such good care of his little girl. Now, finally the day has come. On Friday, May 7, 2010 Dev and her father Michellet arrived safely in Tampa, Florida and today (at 8 am Florida time) she will undergo surgery. Thank you God for answering prayers. Thank you to all the people who made this possible. Please pray for wisdom for the doctors, a successful surgery and recovery for Dev as well as a speedy return back to Haiti.

"With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." Matthew 19
