"Emma's Hope"

I have added a picture in the upper corner entitled, "Emma's Hope".

If you click on it, you will be linked to Emmas family's blog.

Emma Hope was adopted from Ukraine in March. She is 5 years old. She has a heart defect, (AVSD) but it was not corrected in infancy which is the optimal time for surgery.

The Cornish family, brought Emma home with the hope of getting her heart defect corrected.

Unfortunately, because of the heart being allowed to function incorrectly for so long, it has done possibly irreversible damage. The cardiologists are concerned she will not make it through surgery and recovery. However, the alternative is to not operate which will surely lead to a shortened life for Emma.

It IS a miracle that Emma did not die in Ukraine. It IS a miracle the Cornish family brought her home as they went to adopt a different child.

The options the family is facing. This family is strong. This family is faithful. They added 2 children with DS to their family.

Please send a prayer their way this week.

Read their blog and you will fall in love with their family as I have.
