Our agency has a little girl on their special focus group who has stolen my heart! I have no idea how many people this blog will reach, but I wanted to post about her on the off chance that somebody might fall in love with a beautiful child who waits for a home. When our agency posted about her in their Jing Yi files, I watched a video of her being examined by a doctor who went over with our agency to help get the files of several little ones ready for adoption. The video showed her playfully reaching for her nanny's hair and she had the cutest smile. I fell in love right then. I would love to help her find her forever family. I realize that there will be hurdles ahead for her- she has knee valgus, and uses a walker or crawls. I have no idea if she can have surgery to correct the problems with her leg. But, I can't help but think there has to be someone out there who isn't scared by the thought that she may be wheelchair bound- someone who falls in love with a precious girl, and is willing to get her any help she needs. If you are considering adopting - or know anyone who is- please look at her file and videos, and pass the info on- you never know who will see her picture and file and change a child's life forever!!
BTW- her name is Xiao. Our agency is waiving their adoption fees. I'm praying she'll soon feel the love of a family!
Xiao is a beautiful 7 year old girl with knee valgus and incontinence. She appears to have had some type of spinal surgery prior to coming to the orphanage at 10 months of age. She was also diagnosed with hydrocephaly when first admitted; however doctors believed that there was no need to do surgery because the fluid would resolve over time. Since then her head circumference has been getting smaller and smaller. She had shown delays in language and mental development, but she has been improving every day.
She can take care of herself, crawls and can walk some by leaning on the railing. She is described as lively and cheerful and likes to sing while her best friend dances. Her caretakers say she is smart, polite and likes to give them a warm hug when they come to work. You can see recent videos of her at:
Xiao is designated as Special Focus and is part of our Jing Yi program. All FTIA agency fees will be waived for Xiao’s adoptive family.
