Best of Heritage 2011

I am so happy to tell you about the award that Starfish received recently from Heritage Makers.  

I have felt it so important to be the record keeper for the babies that have been with us.  We take hundreds if not thousands of pictures of each baby.  We write about the milestones and track their development.  We weigh them each week and write down their daily feeding schedule.  We do all because I believe that someone has to remember and hopefully one day, it is going to help heal their hearts.  I want them to know of our love for them and that there were people who wanted them in spite of them being abandoned.  I love that Virginia has done such a great job of showcasing this great book on the five year anniversary. Here is an award we received from them a few weeks ago.  We are so grateful to everyone who is involved with this project. Thank you so much for you time, effort, talents and the incredible love that is involved with this.

I think the video clips speaks for itself, so please watch this:

Life, love and laughter,

At Starfish, we have taken care of 148 children to date, arranged more than 170 surgeries and had 65 international adoptions, so our little starfishes live all over the globe: the US, Netherlands, Norway, France, Spain, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Canada, Australia and in China. Our latest adoption, Carl, went to a family in the Colorado, US.  We currently have 48 babies under the age of 3 and a half at the foster home.  We have just added two boys from the orphanage hospital, Malcolm and Trevor.

We are currently preparing for a medical team from Australia to do a medical trip starting September 26th and help 20 babies with cleft lip and palate surgeries.
