Mackenzie’s birthday is March 16, 2008. She will be just over two years old when we bring her home (yikes!)
Mackenzie has a heart defect called Tetralogy of Fallot. This means that there a several things wrong with her heart, and she will need to have surgery when she comes home.
Associated with her heart problem is something called microsia. she is missing one of her ears, and will most likely have corrective surgery on that, as well.
She’s the most beautiful little girl I have ever seen, and I am so happy she’s mine!
Mackenzie is currently living in Shaanxi province in China, and we have heard good things about the Children’s Welfare Institute that she is living in.
According to the file we received, Mackenzie’s a deep sleeper, and her favorite food in congee, which is a type of rice porridge. How cute is that?!
Please pray for our daughter. Pray that she would stay healthy and well cared for until we can get to her. I know these next five months are going to be tough on us!
