Mabel is a delightful little girl. Literally little. Though she is almost eight years old, she is about the size of a three year old. She can both walk and run, expresses joy and sadness and greatly enjoys affection. Though non-verbal, she can make sounds and use gestures to make her desires known. Sadly, in the orphanage at this time, she is unable to get any therapy. Imagine her potential and what she could do if she was getting physical, occupational and speech therapy! Mabel truly needs someone to adopt her soon, and help her become all that God has intended for her to be!
From one of our adoptive families who met her in 2012: “She really is a beautiful sweet little girl. She has the most infectious giggle and her eyes can read your soul. She is the size of a 3yo and non verbal, but loves to play and be silly. I spent a lot of time playing with her and fell completely in love.”
MABEL can stand for “Mothers Always Bring Extra Love,” and if ever a child needed extra love, it is this precious girl. She has no one to love on her- so she’s chewing on her hands and sleeves. Her little hands look raw. What a horrible way to have to comfort yourself- to just be a darling baby and no one love on you because you happen to have an extra chromosome. She’s tiny, no bigger than a 3 year old. Her cheeks are raw, from her having her wet hands against them, and the cool air of winter hitting them. Somewhere, this child has a mom that will bring “extra love” for this precious child of God with an “extra chromosome”. Mama? Do you see me?
