Lilit is eight years old. She was born in Armenia in 2007 and diagnosed with severe scoliosis. Due to this condition, Lilit was placed in an orphanage at ten days old. There, she grew and learned, played and sang, laughed and cried, and had many friends. However, medical treatment was not available to her in Armenia.
In 2016 after months of planning, the Society for Orphaned Armenian Relief (SOAR) and the Harold and Josephine Gulamerian Armenian Orphan Fund made it possible for Lilit to travel to the United States to finally receive life-saving surgery. This blog is a chronicle of her journey.
