Baby with TOF

We may be able to adopt a one year old baby girl with CHD - TOF.  She has not had any surgeries yet.  What are her chances of survival?  We do not yet have her detailed medical history but it may not give us many clues anyway because of the county where she is living.  She looks healthy and does not seem "blue" in her photos.  She has managed to survive a year in an orphanage.  I would think that would give some indication to her strength.  How many surgeries is she likely to have in the first few years of life.  If these kids survive, do these they do well in life or are they comprimised?  

Any comments would be greatly appreciated,
mommy

The best way to get some of your questions answered is to write on the PEDIATRIC cardiology forum or on the DOCTOR's forum for Pediatric Heart. Another thing you might consider doing is to make an appointment with a local pediatric cardiologist where you live and who would be the doctor you would be seeing if you chose to adopt this wonderful little girl.
