The Shrine of North America operates four specialized burn centers for children.
The closest one is in Cincinnati, a three-and-a-half hour trip for most burn victims, but a much further trip for one six-year-old girl.
Sela Betz was born in China, where a mysterious accident left her legs severely burned.
As an orphan, she didn't have access to the best medical care in her homeland. She ended up finding it here, in the United States, where she also found a home.
It was her little face that captured Betty Betz's heart. Sela may have played with a Barbie doll back then, but she truly didn't embrace American culture, until she came here.
And now Sela is just another one of the kindergartners at Good Shepherd School. But she still has special needs.
As Sela grows, she may need more surgery, but her mom knows when that day comes, she'll be in good hands once again.
