What a happy birthday I'm having helping this great team change these babies lives. At breakfast yesterday the entire mission wished me a happy birthday by singing happy birthday!  Thanks to all my new friends.
How can I explain how I feel? Tears when I learn that we can't fix all of the children, we had to turn many away because we just don't have the time. I'm sad when I must take the babies from their mothers arms and have to watch them cry because they are afraid and scared of this strange person carrying them in to the operating room.  Happy when I see the mom and dad holding their beautiful baby in the recovery room.
