Pre-rescue, documentary video. In March 2009, I visited baby Boshidara at her orphanage in Bulgaria as a part of the organization One Heart Bulgaria. Boshidara, whose name means "God's gift", suffers from hydrocephalus and severe neglect. One Heart Bulgaria has assisted with her medical care in order to help get her condition under control, but when I saw her, she looked worse than ever before. Her head had grown, even with a 2nd shunt replacement . Her thin, frail & practically lifeless body was skin and bones--without any muscle tone--and covered in ants, some of which were eating her flesh. She was also now blind. What a beautiful and courageous little spirit she is! I hope she inspires you as much as she has inspired me. She is my hero.
