LIDDY for the Foreman family — IL
Dee and Jason have been married for almost ten years. Adoption was something that they thought would never enter their lives, but there were other plans in store for them. Adoption was something that was ever present in their lives. Jason is adopted and when the time came to take the leap of faith in 2007 and start the ball rolling to adopt a little girl from the South of China, he knew that the blessing of adoption was a wonderful way to make a family.
Dee loves children and is a Social Worker. Adopting a child with special needs did not seem that scary at all. To Dee and Jason adopting a child with special needs now seems more like a calling and a way to give a child a chance at a family.
Dee and Jason fill their home with love and humor. Their first child was adopted in 2009, and Chun Xiao Evelyn has brought them so much joy and they could not ask for a bigger blessing in their life.
The Foreman’s really believe that no child should be the victims of of circumstance. A waiting child’s value is no less than a “normal” child. They deserve families and love and a chance. More people should give a waiting child the chance they deserve. It has been the most rewarding thing they have ever done by far. Evelyn has given them more than they could ever hope to give her. It makes them sad to know that there are so many waiting children who are still hoping for that chance.
The Foreman’s have started their next adoption of a little girl who lives in the North of China. Min Fen, who they will name Lydia Glenn is 6 years old. MinFen has PFFD. Which in means that her proximal femur is lacking in completeness. Currently Liddy cannot walk without assistance and she will need surgery to correct her leg which will lead to her wearing a prosthetic. Her prosthetic will allow her to walk and run just like most other children. Liddy will not get the surgery she needs in China, nor will she have the opportunity of a family.
You can help the Foreman Family bring Liddy home by donating today. Adoption costs are amazingly high and any amount that you donate is tax deductible. Thank you for helping bring Liddy to the Foreman Family.
