Soon she was well enough to get lip surgery. I took her to a famous plastic surgeon in Xian for her lip surgery that had been recommended. He did a good job, but taped her face like a face lift patient. I was so stunned to see her face. She looked like she had been in a bar fight. In April this year we arranged for her to go to the Operations Smile Hospital in Hangzhou where she had her palate repaired.
We were so delighted to hear that she was going to Canada and that she was going to have two older brothers. Her family came to get her on May 10th. Her new name is now Karine and from what I hear things are going well with her new family.
