Yuting was born with bladder exstrophy and received a bilateral innominate osteotomy and single-stage bladder exstrophy closure in February 2011. During her recovery, she celebrated her birthday in the Hong Kong Sanatorium Hospital. She was soon adopted to the U.S. upon her return to Beijing.
In October, Ting's parents wrote to New Hope Foundation with the following update:
"I wanted to say hi and send a picture of Ting Ting your way. It's been one year now since her adoption and we are celebrating this week! Please let her nannies know she is doing wonderfully. She is healthy and running and jumping, keeping up with her big brothers in whatever they are doing! We are forever grateful to you and your team there."
