We found our mother outside a mosque.  Her family kicked her out of her home for having a defective child.  Her baby girl had a fast growing tumor on her lower spine.  Desperate – she begged for someone – anyone – to take her daughter.  She felt that anyone would make a better mother.  We were able to get her to Shanghai where she got surgery and then physical therapy in her home town.  A nine month follow up visit reveals no long term physical problems and a 14 month on the verge of walking.
