Advocate Today: 11-Year Old, Beautiful “Hope”
“Hope” is a sweet 11-year old girl that is outgoing and loves to sing and enjoys music. She has performed in the New Yearâ€™s Party and Childrenâ€™s Day party, which are important holidays in China. The orphanage staff love to hear her sing.
She is an active girl who is currently in a boarding school for special needs children and stays there during the week and returns to the orphanage on the weekends. While in school, she participates in a number of activities. Her caretakers describe her as a polite child, both at school and in the orphanage, and very obedient and sensible. Her teachers, caretakers, and classmates all enjoy being around her.
“Hope” has been diagnosed with blindness (corneal leukoplakia & congenital missing eye) but has light perception in her right eye and has normal physical and intellectual development. She has been in the orphanage since she was 3 months old.
“Hope” is in one of our orphanage partners but her file is now on the shared list. She is designated as a Special focus child, which means she is available to be matched with any family at any stage of the adoption process.
Contact our China staff to learn more about how you can make “Hope” a part of your family by calling 800-429-3369 or WaitingChildren@awaa.org.
