New Waiting Children

We have a new Waiting Child from the Vietnam program.

Since she is older and has some medical concerns, it’s very important that we find her family as soon as possible.

If you’ve been considering adopting an older child, we hope you’ll read her profile below. If you would like more information, please fill out the form at the bottom of the page. It goes straight to the Waiting Child coordinator, who would be delighted to send you more medical and social information.

This sweet girl loves to sing and play. A doctor describes her as very active, not letting her limp and cane slow her down.

She can walk, run, climb and loves to slide.

Her fine motor skills are delayed. She has hydrocephaly and had surgery in January 2013. She has club feet and leg weakness, causing her to need braces on her ankles. She is not yet toilet trained.

Her last checkup was in January, when she weighed 60 pounds and was 3 feet, 9 inches tall. Her lungs, heart and abdomen are all normal.

We have a copy of her MRI and a video that shows her playing on the playground with her friends and caregivers.

This darling girl needs a family to call her own who will help her continue overcoming her physical limitations.

In general, the family requirements for the Vietnam program are:

  • Single individuals or heterosexual married couples
  • Ages 25 to 55
  • At least 20 years older than the child being adopted
  • Married at least 2 years … or 3 years if either spouse has been married previously
  • In generally good mental, emotional and physical health

Families from all 50 states may inquire.
