Seven-month-old Long Zirou was abandoned by her family shortly after she was born with a cleft lip. Luckily, a kindhearted stranger found her and delivered her to the orphanage Changsha Social Welfare Home. The orphanage has strong ties with the local Smile Train partner hospital and, when she was strong enough, Long Zirou was brought in for surgery and a new life. Her surgery was one of three simultaneous surgeries performed to commemorate Smile Trainís 250,000th surgery in China.
