Liu Jingya was 2 years old when she was burned badly in China. She was brought to the US in 2012 for surgery as part of an Agape Asia Medical Mission. She is currently living in Ohio with her host family.
Here is a recent update from her mother:
Jing turned 5 in September and, like all girls turning 5 this year, celebrated with a “Frozen” party! She started her second year of preschool in August and is doing very, very well. She is well loved by her teachers and peers, can count to 40 and knows all her letters and sounds! She is one smart girl. Her favorite things to do are arts and crafts, reading books and playing with her brother and sister. She takes ballet and tap and can’t wait to wear the pretty yellow dress for her recital in April. She continues to bless everyone she meets and makes me excited to begin each day.
We went to Shriner’s in September for her one year follow up and her new doctor said she was doing well and come back in a year! Her eye is still a concern and now that she finally has health insurance, I am taking her to a specialist on Monday to figure out if there is vision in her left eye. From what I can tell, she can see light and dark, but that is all.
We received legal guardianship for Jingya in March, she got her green card in September, social security card in October and finally, health insurance in November. We had to jump through all kinds of hoops, but it is finally done. We are waiting to hear from our attorney to see what is next to complete the adoption.
I will attach some photos so you can see how much she has grown. We went to Gatlinburg right before Thanksgiving and this little tiny girl rode a horse, went zip lining, rode go karts and an alpine coaster down the side of a mountain! She really is something else!
I will forever be grateful to you and your work for your part in bringing Jingya to us. We are so very lucky.
