EMERGENCY ADOPTIONS: TWO GIRLS AGING OUT FROM CHINA
There are only a few weeks left to find these two girls families before they age out. They will no longer be eligible for adoption once they turn 14.
Only families with a dossier already logged in with an approved I-600 (not I-800) can adopt either of them.
Please contact WACAP immediately! 206-575-4550
MUST BE ADOPTED BEFORE FEBRUARY 14, 2010
X.L is an almost 14 year old girl in an age appropriate grade in school where her favorite subjects are singing and Chinese. She wants to be a philosopher when she grows up. When asked whether it is best to be a boy or a girl, she said it’s better to be a boy because boys are tough. She says she has many friends. When asked how she reacts when she is mad at someone, she says she ignores them. When asked about parents, she said she knows about mothers and fathers but doesn’t know what they do.
We were advised that she has “fragile bones”; that both her femurs had broken, but in 2005 she had surgery where rods were put into both her legs. Since then she has not had further breaks. Due to this condition she is extremely short for a 13 year old.
She has a low voice and speaks some English.
There are up to $9000 in grants to help a family who makes less than $125,000/year (you may subtract $3700 per child in your home) adopt her.
MUST BE ADOPTED BEFORE FEBRUARY 8, 2010.
J.P. is an almost 14 year old girl who dreams of having a big adoptive family, with lots of brothers and sisters. She admits to being “bossy” with the younger kids in the orphanage but also says that she is proud of herself when the teachers praise her for helping with the younger children. When asked she says she would like to become a policewoman when she grows up.
She’s a typical pre teen as she loves to talk and play with her friends, describing herself as outgoing, and not liking to be by herself. Her cleft lip and palate have been repaired and her speech is clear. She has a sweet, slightly shy demeanor, but spoke confidently. While she reportedly had abnormal liver function at admission to the orphanage, she appears to no longer have any symptoms of liver problems.
WACAP offers a $4000 grant to families who make less than $125,000/year (you may subtract $3700 per child in your home) to help with adoption expenses.
Do you have a dossier already logged in with an approved I-600 or know someone else who does? If so, please contact WACAP right away.
