Batnasan, our latest Gift of Life child from Mongolia, is doing well after his recent cardiac surgery at Albany Medical Center.

However, he and his mom still are here a month after surgery, sort of stranded because of the COVID-19 pandemic travel restrictions.

Dean and Doris Calamaras, our SRC liaisons to Gift of Life, on Easter Sunday dropped off some holiday baked goods for them and their host family. They sat them on the ground by the mailbox and the family later retrieved them.

Dean reports, “All doing well in that household, they said. No telling when mother, child and interpreter will be able to go home.”
