Sweet Adalia is 12 years old, and weighs 44 pounds. Agency staff met her in 2011, and still … she waits. She is in desperate need of a family. She must be adopted by her 14th birthday, or she will be un-adoptable! These photos are from March 2019.
Adalia is able to crawl and can stand with support. Her caregivers say that she refuses solid food, so she only eats food that is very watered down. Her favorite toy is a rocking horse. There is a video of her crawling over and climbing up to rock for a while. The nannies note that she does not interact with those around her and does not follow directions. Adalia receives some simple therapy in the orphanage and the teachers there work with her as well.
What Adalia needs most is to receive the one-on-one attention that a family could provide and the unconditional love of her very own mom and dad.
