FACING IMMINENT INSTITUTIONALIZATION!
From a family who met her in summer 2012:
In July we traveled to meet our daughter for the first time. While we were there we were able to meet Celine. She came up to us and gave me a hug and stroked the side of my face. She had 2 braids with big bows on the ends and she looks to have thinned out some. She looked very cute and healthy. When we were leaving she blew us kisses goodbye. The institution she is in is a very good one but the orphanage director is very excited to have children adopted from his orphanage. He has said that even though he loves the children he knows they would do so much better with a family.
Celine’s grant of $30369.63 has been reallocated to Maria, Brandi, and Berkeley.
