For those of you who haven't heard...Nadine is coming to America! Well...we are working on getting her medical visa because Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus Ohio accepted her 100% free of charge!
I am so happy for their decision! One one hand I am proud b/c I am a former employee of Nationwide Children's Hospital. I am so excited that my former co-workers are going to be the ones providing care to Nadine! One the other hand I am so so so excited for Nadine, who has been suffering since she was a toddler and teased. I met her 3 years ago and had no idea God would use me as a link to help save her life.
Dana Noffsinger is a Pediatric NP at Children's and was the driving force behind getting Nadine accepted. I facebooked him and asked him to read my blog post about Nadine and see if he could ask around at Children's.
He did and started taking to a radiologist and surgeon and submitted the required paperwork. I can not say how grateful I am for what he has done for Nadine. I sat back and thought about when I met Dana and how we worked together with surgical patients at Chidren's for a few years. But now I see the how the Lord had another plan for us working together even before I ever stepped foot in Haiti. I hope he knows how much we at Angel Missions appreciate all he has done!
So now we are working on the paperwork for Nadine's Embassy appointment for her medical visa. They require a large amount of paperwork and it has to be PERFECT.
It started with getting Nadine and her mother to Port au Prince to get her passport and other paperwork signed. Here are some pictures of Nadine at her house.
Sendhie, The secretary at Angel Missions had a schooling session with her mother before they headed out for paperwork. Nadine's mother never went to school and can't sign her name. Literally doesn't know her letters. Can't write a single one. So Sendhie was teaching her how to sign her name. It was so sweet...I took a picture of it :)
