Advocate Today: 11-Year Old, Hope
Hope was first introduced as a new addition to our Waiting Child list over 2 months ago. As of today, she is still waiting for that missing part of her life that she has never experienced–a family of her own.
Hope is a sweet 10-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, 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.
This file is an agency orphanage partnership file but is now a shared file. Hope is designated by the CCCWA as a Special Focus child and is available to be matched with any family at any stage of the adoption process, provided their social worker gives approval.
Current America World families who are interested in adopting Hope into their family should contact their Family Coordinator about him.
Families not currently in the process of adopting with America World should fill out a quick & simple free PRE-APPLICATION and our Intake staff will follow up with you right away.
Any questions about Hope or any Waiting Child can be directed to our China staff at WaitingChildren@awaa.org or 800-429-2269.
