In a week when the world celebrated the coming of spring, a team of doctors and nurses “sewed” seeds of hope into the hearts of 10 Haitian children.

During a medical mission last week, parents of children ages two to 13 saw hearts spring to normal. Their children received surgeries to correct defects that robbed them of vitality and starved their bodies of oxygen.
