We could not believe how much Fah Sai had progressed after only 3 months!
She was now expressive, animated, smiling and full of unabandoned laughter. She was vocal too; not only uttering some intelligible words, but also letting out shrieks of pure joy!
Fah Sai can now sit in a chair without straps and feed herself, as well as lift her arms to point at objects she wants. Moreover, the staff says she has started to walk with her feet flat on the floor when held upright by her arms.
The finale of the visit was when we gathered in the canteen along with staff and the rest of kids to celebrate her birthday with cake, song and presents. Once again Fah Sai surprised us by showing she knew how to blow out candles and tear open presents like any other kid on such an occasion. The beauty of it all is that we know, she’s going to keep improving.
For someone who suffered most of her young tender life and to see her now in such bliss, it touches our hearts and makes us feel extremely good inside.
And to all of you, our gracious sponsors, who allow children like this to have better lives, we hope you feel the same too. After all, Fah Sai is part of our growing extended family.
A special thanks to Dieter at The Thai in Regensburg, Germany, who helps us raise funds and has taken a special interest in Fah Sai.
