Adeline is 5 years old and was born with a rare congenital heart defect and genetic condition that is caused by a defect in the 22nd chromosome. Since birth Adeline has had to undergo multiple surgical interventions and exploratory procedures. She has had countless admissions into the hospital due to her susceptibility in contracting any number of viruses.
One of the most risky surgeries that she has had was her first open heart surgery in September of 2015 at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, NY. The surgery was 11 hours long and was a complete success. On September 12 of this year Adeline revisited Strong Memorial for her 2nd open heart surgery. The surgery itself was flawless, but because of Adeline’s underlying lung disease she has had post-operative complications in both surgeries, both pulmonary related, so stays at the hospital for single mom Jada and Adeline as are usually prolonged.
The light this child brings into peoples lives is unlike anything I have ever experienced. For individuals to witness such a small child having to fight this hard for her life from the start gives us all a new appreciation and perspective on life as a whole to make us step back and think “well, maybe my problems aren’t really that big in the grand scheme after all.”
Children like Adeline know no bounds they live off of the ideation that they have no limitations and marvel at the parts of the world most people take for granted. I believe this little girl could change the world. ♥️
