Girl, born Nov 1999
first degree scoliosis, flatfoot, chronic hearing loss (she is not deaf because we talked to her and she answered questions)
This child truly took my breath away. She is one of the strongest and sweetest girls you will ever meet. She has been placed in an orphanage for children with mental delays that she should not be in, but has found a passion for dancing and has represented her orphanage (and won) at national and regional contests. She practiced this particular dance she performed for us for two weeks with hopes that someone would see her dancing and want to adopt her. She asked with tears in her eyes that we help find her a family- she is turning 14 this year- as each year goes by the orphanage staff said she becomes more discouraged as some of her friends get adopted and she still waits.
She is an orphanage helper- she leads the groups in singing and practicing poems. She is doted on by orphanage staff as she is a huge help for them. She even has braces for her teeth which is unheard of in orphanages! She NEEDS and WANTS a family! Her best friend is being adopted domestically and will soon be leaving the orphanage.
$25.65 is available towards the cost of my adoption!
