Something close to my heart....

There are so many beautiful kids waiting over at CWA. This is with their Hope Project. The kids are all in Beijing and really want a family. I am especially attached to the the little girl who is assigned #20. She is so cute. Her palate and lip have been repaired. Looks like they did a great job. She would need speech therapy. In her interview she says she would like a large family. How I wish that could be our family but like everyone else is America right now, we don't have the funds to start an adoption.

Cleft issues are not as hard to deal with as you would think, so please take a look and advocate for these kids. Wouldn't it be wonderful to give them the gift of family for Christmas???

Here is the excerpt from CWA's website for her;

“Hi, I am... I am 10. I am in 4th Grade at Gao Li Ying primary school. I am going to sing a song for you. The name of the song is … by …”
Segments of the interview:
Dr. Dan asked her if she wanted a big or a small family, she said “A big family”. Q: “Do you want brothers or sisters on the family?A: “Both”Q: “Do you want older or younger sibling?A: “I want a family with many siblings; it does not matter if they are older or younger than me; or if they are brothers or sisters.”
Dr. Dan’s impression of her: “A cute and smiley face makes her so endearing to be around. Great personality; easy to speak to. She seemed eager to talk and was comfortable and relaxed with me. A real sweetheart!”
She can pronounce words clearly and without difficulties; she just sounded nasal.
