Breann's Story

Home is where the heart is
Prairieville family, disrupted by newly adopted baby’s need for a heart transplant, settling in again after successful surgery

Breann Wusterbarth, just 23 months old, has already journeyed farther than many people will in their lifetime.

Adopted by Mary and Danny Wusterbarth of Prairieville, she was brought home in October 2006 from an orphanage in Baoji City, China.

Three months later, she was making a different kind of journey — coming back from death’s door, after a virus that at first seemed like a cold attacked her heart.

Since then, Breann has survived a heart transplant, and the bright, smiling little girl is working on her next challenge — learning to walk.
