Above is a gang of Phoebe and Ging dolls taking the train into Boston with my husband. They were on their way to the Shriners (Burns) Hospital for Children. Shriners is the world’s preeminent hospitals in the treatment of children with severe burn injuries.
The dolls went to Shriners about three weeks ago. Since then the dolls have met some amazing children. One of them is Sarah.
Here is Phoebe with Sarah Bosch. The Bosch family adopted Sarah knowing that she would need extensive treatment for her burns when she arrived in the United States. They started the process of piecing together Sarah's medical plan soon after their referral and before traveling to China to bring her home. Their research led them to The Shriners Hospital for Children at Mass General.
Since arriving in the United States, Sarah has had several lengthy visits to the Boston Shriners Hospital (her family is from Washington DC) and has endured multiple surgeries and complex recoveries. But Sarah is doing well. She has an amazing family, medical care and an amazing attitude as you can see from her photos.
Phoebe feels very privileged to have found Sarah and is hoping they will both soon be home. You can read more about Sarah's journey here.
