Taleen’s heart is incredibly complex. The doctors are planning a surgery to place a band that helps reduce the pressure in the pulmonary artery and to fix the narrowing of her aorta, a major artery that supplies oxygen to the rest of her precious three-kilogram body. This would be the first step, and she would later need, potentially, two other surgeries when she grows older. The surgery date is still to be determined.
Her grandmother exclaimed at how beautiful Taleen is, and I thought about how God the Father sees her with an indescribable love. It amazes me to simply ponder upon how God created Taleen, and how He knows every detail of the time He’s prepared for her. We pray that God would be glorified through Taleen’s story, and that her family would feel the Father’s presence throughout her journey.
