Guess Who's Home!
November 24, 2016

We are so thrilled to let you know that Joseph is home from the hospital! He's getting lots of attention at our Butterfly home with his cheeky  See more

THE STORY:

Joseph arrived at the Butterfly Home last October when he was just 5 months old. He had very serious medical issues, but when our ayis looked at him, they didn’t see a child with complicated needs. They saw a gorgeous boy with big brown eyes and a heart that needed a lot of loving! Very quickly we saw his cheeky personality emerge! With expert wound care and nutrition Joseph was soon in the perfect condition to undergo a challenging, but life-saving surgery. In December Joseph travelled to Shanghai with his dedicated Ayi's for what we thought would be a straightforward surgery. We were devastated to receive news that his surgery had failed. While we welcomed his smiley face back with open arms, our hearts were broken by the reports that Joseph was ‘inoperable’ Thankfully, we have contacted a surgeon in Xining who previously operated on a Butterfly baby and he is ​​prepared to undertake Joseph’s complicated surgery. ​Although this is not without risk, it is the only hope for ​our little boy! The total costs of surgery will come in ​​around $4,200 USD. Can you help us to change Joseph's life?
