Joseph and His Heart

During my time at SFCV, I only knew that Joseph had a heart condition.

After talking to the adoption liaison, she gave me a better description of what his heart condition is really about:

He has a very complicated heart condition
that includes no pulmonary artery, a double anomalous aortic arch and he had a VSD (Ventricular Septal defect)
He had a BT shunt (helps increase blood flow to the lungs) in 09/04/06. 
He has not been able to have his second surgery as it's high risk and he is doing very well at this time
He also has a Velo-Cardio-Facial Syndrome, but it can't be corrected until his heart is corrected. 

He is pale, but is happy and a great guy

I love this line because it is so true!!! I didn't realize Joseph was so sick because I didn't see it in his face and how he interacted with people. He is so friendly and full of life that you wouldn't expect him to be 
this sick.

One thing you all can pr*y for is his heart. Joseph does have a very complicated heart condition so continuing to lift that up to the Lord.
Also for Joseph's spiritual heart, pr*ying that God would give Joseph a family that is following HIM.

Merry Christmas!
