Aging out is when a child becomes unadoptable due to their age and the legal process in either the child's country or the country of an adopting parent. There are many aging out children listed HERE. You can also see the children we have shared in past weeks HERE. There is still time for some of the children we have shared before to be adopted if families act quickly! Today's children are in a country that requires their adoptions to be completed before they turn 14. Single moms can adopt from this country! They are both eligible for $10,000 older child grants to assist with adoption expenses. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about any of these children!
Charlene http://reecesrainbow.org/83423/charlene July 2017
Charlene will turn 14 in July 2017, so her adoption will need to be completed before that time. She is eligible for a $10,000 older child grant to assist with adoption expenses. Read her profile HERE or email email@example.com for more information. A family moving quickly could start from scratch right now to bring her home!
Charlene is a very sweet and polite girl with Down syndrome. She has spent many years in a foster home where it sounds like she has formed great attachments. That is a great advantage for her to adjust when she is adopted into a permanent family. Foster care arrangements vary in different countries. Kids in foster homes in her country can still be adopted, and do still need families. Unfortunately most foster families in her country are unable to keep children when they become adults. But these foster families are a great advantage over a typical orphanage setting for children to learn appropriate behaviors and social skills.
Charlene sounds like she has thrived in her foster home. She is caring toward her foster parents and other people. Her profile suggests she is very high functioning. (I'm not crazy about the term, but it is a useful descriptor so I'm using it here.) She can communicate. She is very smart and cooperative. She loves music and dance. I bet she would love to go to dance or cheerleading practices. I can imagine so much for Charlene in a family! Now we need to help a family find her!
Daphne http://reecesrainbow.org/89473/daphne July 2017
Daphne will turn 14 in July 2017, so her adoption will need to be completed before that time. She is eligible for a $10,000 older child grant to assist with adoption expenses. Read her profile HERE or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. A family moving quickly could start from scratch right now to bring her home!
Daphne's special need is post-op anal atresia. You can look up more information if you are not yet familiar with the condition. Different management techniques can really improve quality of daily life for kids and adults with this condition. This is a medical need that would need to be managed, but not a special need resulting in developmental delays. Her brief profile doesn't list any additional needs or delays, but this country typically has more detailed medical files available for potential adoptive parents to view that would contain more information.
Daphne is described as outgoing and friendly. She has good relationships with friends and caretakers. She is helpful and gets along well with other children. She is currently attending a school within the orphanage. She likes to play with toys and watch cartoons. Her profile doesn't say much more than that, but she needs a family!
Don't forget to check out all of the other kids we have shared recently who need families by going HERE. We need to keep sharing these kids!
We are home with Amos, Daisy, Lee and Violet! Meanwhile we have jumped in again for one last very special girl. If you would like to help with that, you can make a non-tax-deductible donation HERE that we can access immediately. You can also make a tax-deductible donation HERE that we can use once we receive travel dates. Or by donating HERE you can help provide her and other children at her orphanage the care and nutrition they desperately need. See all of our current fundraisers HERE. We are thankful for any support you can offer!
