2 JulWayne’s World

Last October we shared the story of a very special boy, Wayne. He was a little boy we began caring for just after his first birthday. He had complex medical issues and his prognosis was very uncertain.

As time progressed it became evident that he needed surgical intervention and specialised medical care that we could not provide. Our nurses were closely monitoring his condition. Meanwhile, the office staff were busy making arrangements for him to travel to Shanghai for review with medical experts.

Baobei Foundation are a great support to our children arranging reviews with some of the best medical teams in the country. They organised for Wayne to have much needed surgery and continued follow up care.

Nine months on, Wayne is now thriving and making good progress. He remains in Shanghai and has regular medical check ups with positive reports.

Wayne’s world has been turned upside down in the last year (in a good way)! He has had life-changing surgery and now lives with a loving foster family. His world is filled with new opportunities and amazing adventures.

We have a feeling Wayne has a bright future ahead of him and cannot wait to see how his story unfolds.
