Lydia is a precious twelve year old little girl who has been diagnosed with concomitant esotropia of both eyes. A day after coming into care of the orphanage, she was placed with a foster family in order to ensure that she grew up healthily and happy. Lydia likes to play outdoors and play games with the other children. She always has a ready smile and loves beautiful clothing and playing with the neighbors. Lydia is currently listed with Holt International, contact them for more information.


This beautiful ten year old little girl is Harriet. She was abandoned when she was about a month old. She is bright, understanding, not obstinate, likes doing sports, is energetic, adapts well to new things. She has a cleft palate, and she has not had the surgery for her cleft palate yet. The orphanage had planned to do the surgery for her cleft palate, but at that time the doctor suggested that she should wait until after all of her teeth grow out, so they did not have her have the surgery yet. She likes beautiful clothes, especially pink. She likes playing with toy blocks or clay. She likes fruits and yogurt. Harriet is on Lifeline’s special focus list but only posted on Wonderful Waiting Kids. Please email Annie to review her file.
