What a sweet little angel! Baby Noor is a real charmer as she smiles and coos for those around her. This beautiful little girl has flown from Iraq to Atlanta, Georgia to get necessary medical intervention to save her life because she has spina bifida. The soldiers who found Baby Noor as they went from house to house in Iraq showed perseverance in making all the arrangements for getting Baby Noor and her family here to the United States. They didn't give up on their plan even when it was difficult to take care of all the details. It took several weeks to make all the arrangements and many, many phone calls to the United States. The soldiers also showed empathy for Baby Noor's family. Each soldier who was interviewed said that they put themselves in this young mom and dad's place and thought how they would feel themselves if this were their own child. Whenever you put yourself in someone else's place, it makes you want to do whatever you can to help.
Compassion was shown by the doctors who volunteered their services to do the necessary surgery on Baby Noor. Local churches have also shown compassion as they made arrangements for the care of Baby Noor's family while she is in the hospital.
Baby Noor's grandmother and her young father flew with her from Iraq. It took a lot of courage to get on a plane with a sick little baby and come so far away from home. They knew they wouldn't know the language in this country, and that the food and customs would be very different from what they had been accustomed. But they loved her so much that they were willing to do whatever was necessary to save her life.
Everyone seems to have fallen in love with Baby Noor. She has such bright little eyes and her smile is pure sunshine! I really do hope everything turns out well for her.
