A Baby Has Landed

Beautiful Baby ZZT
Beautiful Baby ZZT

Each time we share a new baby's story with you, we are reminded of the poem "The Babies Are Landing" by Joan Margalith:

...There are so many places to land on Earth.
It all gets decided long before birth.
Every baby's landing is carefully planned
at this very moment, in that very land.
And it's just as sure as the nose on your face,
that each baby lands in exactly the right place...

Baby ZZT has indeed landed at just the right place—into the loving hands of the caregivers at Swallows Nest Children's Home in China. She is the first child that The Red Thread Promise is sponsoring in 2013.

Born with hydrocephalus, she has many challenges ahead. We are grateful that she has already received surgery for her condition and is recovering in the skilled hands of Swallows Nest's nannies. With your support, Baby ZZT will continue her recovery and grow into the healthy child she was meant to be. Her monthly care is $175 ($125 for the nanny, $50 for foster care).

Thank you for your generous gift to this project.
