And the one who every day cared for, and loved Ella thanked us. Wow! These Ayi's (Nannies) are absolutely amazing. Ella wasn't the only child in the Critical Care Unit while we were there. Daily the children in the CCU are fighting for their lives. And each day of their struggle the nannies tend to their needs and love on them. Although named CCU, the rooms are full of the sounds of love and laughter.
Shortly after we left China one of the babies in the CCU passed away; the second one in a matter of weeks. Here's a link to a blog post written by a volunteer after attending the memorial service for Reese. I encourage you to read this beautifully written post - it will give you a wonderful insight into the nannies who love these children.
