    This made me cry!! I saw pictures of her in the newspaper but the photographers cleverly hid her abnormality and being a nurse I said, “I wanna see, I wanna see!” The team at Advocate are so caring and wise. What a blessing for this little girl and our USA that we can help people in need. Thank you to all for restoring my faith in our country! We are living through such bad times right now, we need to see this as a nation.
