Ahmed is now one day closer to seeing his parents.

His days of fighting against a completely broken heart are over! What’s ahead of him?

Everything! His family, his home, his friends, his school, soccer and anything else any normal four year old with a strong heart would look forward to.

Today, I’m pretty sure I caught Ahmed daydreaming about all of those things as he just spent time relaxing before heading home sometime this week.

I remember meeting Ahmed just last week, with his knees to his chest because that was the only position in which he could breath properly. Now he’s sprawled out on his bed with candy wrappers all around him.

We are looking forward to our last few days with Ahmed and his uncle. Will we miss them? Of course! But we can’t wait for his parents to see him with a healthy, happy heart thanks to you!
