Zsa Zsa Palagyi - 700 Club Producer

For years, Wanlin only had two friends. She shares, “One was my kitten. I played with her all the time.”

The other was her big brother, HuangYu. “He was like a big strong tree to me,” Wanlin explains. “Every time I thought about him, I was as happy as when you eat a marshmallow.”

Wanlin wished she had more friends, but she was diagnosed with a serious heart problem when she was a year old, and never had a normal childhood.

Her brother HuangYu declares, “Wanlin was like a caged bird who tried to fly freely, but she couldn’t.”

Wanlin’s mother says, “Her lips turned dark a lot and she got dizzy. She had horrible fevers. I was scared that she might die at any time.”

“The doctor said she needed surgery but we didn’t have enough money,” adds Yu.

So Mrs. Huang worked hard doing odd jobs to make ends meet and save up for Wanlin’s surgery. Her brother helped, too.

“It was my way of showing my sister that I loved her,” he says. “During vacation, I worked from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. and I gave my mother all of my wages. If I could get my sister surgery, it would all be worth it.”

But it would be years before the Huangs could save enough. Meanwhile, Wanlin struggled to breathe and got progressively worse.

“One day, my whole body was in pain,” she recalls. “I looked in the mirror and thought ‘I’m not pretty at all!’”

Shortly after, Wanlin ended up in the hospital. Her brother rushed her there in his arms and remembers, “Her hands trembled and she looked pale. But I just believed that God would have mercy and save my sister.”

Then CBN heard about Wanlin, and we helped set up and provide her with surgery.

She says with a twinkle in her eyes, “Now I’m healthy. I don’t feel any pain anymore. So I can ride my bike and play with other children!”

Her brother shares, “Wanlin is completely different. And her laughter is like birds singing. I’m just so happy to see her happy. You gave us a hand when we needed it most. If everyone showed love like this, the world would be such a better place.”

Wanlin adds, “When I grow up, I hope to be kind and loving just like you!”
