Dr. John Ness celebrated his birthday on our 2012 cleft trip in Henan Province. Dr. Ness has traveled to China with LWB multiple times, performing surgery on children born with cleft lip. His wife wanted a picture of how he spent his special day healing babies. Originally we were going to take a photo with just a few children, but the orphanage nannies wouldn’t accept that as they all wanted THEIR babies in the picture with Dr. Ness. Soon everyone gathered around, singing “Happy Birthday” in Mandarin, while piling babies on his lap!
