Extreme Emergency Adoption
Girl from Asia, Blind, Aging Out March 9, 2010
Agency Fees waived*
Do you already have a dossier and an approved I-600 (not I-800) logged-in in China- including singles? Are you approved to adopt two children? Are you approved to adopt an older child with special needs? Do you have a cooperative USCIS office? If so, please contact us immediately regarding this girl.
She will age out on March 9. This child’s adoptive family must have a dossier already logged in with China, with an I-600 approval, in order to complete her adoption before she turns 14.YTY. Girl. Despite her small size, she is 13. She has been able to make the most of the opportunities offered in the boarding school for the blind which she attends. She has learned Braille, enjoys studying language and makes good grades. However, a family who can offer her love and attention as well as a full spectrum of resources for the sight impaired, will help her blossom. She has some vision in her left eye; she does not have a right eye and she has a heart issue (involving bicuspid II SM). When she turns 14 she will no longer be able to be adopted domestically or internationally. Agency adoption are waived for eligible families* for this adoption. PLEASE ask about possible additional assistance. Please contact a Family Finders Case Manager for more information.
Boy, Aging Out in May 2010
Agency Fees waived*
Families who already have a dossier logged in, regardless of whether or not they’ve already been assigned a child, should inquire if they are interested in adopting this particular child.
13-year-old MX shared that, while living at the orphanage, he has seen many younger children be adopted. He also shared that he has had many friends about his same age at the orphanage, but they have all either been adopted or have a family coming for them. He is sad to be left behind. After visiting him, our staff said, “He is very good-looking and seems like a normal teenage boy.” MX is very motivated to be adopted and traveled from another orphanage with many younger children as the only older child to meet and discuss any adoption opportunities with us.
While he appears to be quite shy, he is engaging and has a very charming smile. When asked about what he likes to do, he responded that he loves to play basketball, and his favorite player is “Kobe.” He is currently in the appropriate grade for his age in secondary school. His favorite subject is language. He speaks a little English. When he grows up, he wants to be a cartoonist because he loves to draw. He gave WACAP staff pictures that he had drawn. He likes to watch cartoons on TV. When asked what he would do if money was not an object, he said he would have a house and a car. When asked how he reacts when he’s upset with someone, he wisely told us he doesn’t speak with them until he has calmed down. When asked to describe his ideal family, he said he would like a large family. Clearly that is what this boy needs—before he turns 14 and becomes ineligible for international adoption. He still remembers what it is like to be part of a family and wants to be part of that again soon.
