Tianna’s Story

Tianna was born in the Philippines, weighing less than 2 pounds.  After losing her twin brother shortly after birth, she fought to survive.  When she was only 8 days old, she was sent to a Christian, caring orphanage where she was held 24 hours a day and fed with a medicine dropper.  We adopted her when she was a beautiful, healthy 2-year-old.

Now Tianna needs to show that fighting spirit again. A tumor was discovered on her brain on Oct. 20th and we were sent to Children's Hospital.  She needs to have surgery to remove the tumor and then see if additional treatments will be needed.  

God is good and will be with her each step of the way!

MRI Results

Yesterday Tianna had her 4 month checkup with an MRI and doctor visit.  The results were great with no sign of cancer!  She also graduated from physical and occupational therapy this week.  She still struggles with balance, but has made huge strides in that area, as well as meeting her other goals.  That means that she may also quit wearing the braces on her feet.  As you can see, we have an awful lot to be thankful for. God has been so faithful during the past 2 years and has kept Tianna strong and with a positive attitude. Wishing all of your families a very joyous holiday season.
