aging out children with CCAI

April 24, 2014 Advocacy, aging-out child, CCAI, Family Found 0 Comments

Can you imagine life without a family or a person to call your own? Can you imagine dreaming of a family only to know there is a good chance it may not happen? Can you imagine knowing at 14 years of age that the dream of having a forever family has to die because you are no longer eligible to be adopted? Most of us know the love of a family or at least one person that we can call ours. Our children don’t have to grow up wondering if they will ever get chosen. Most of our children and loved ones turn 14 and start high school. They don’t have to face the reality that they are going to live their lives without a family to call theirs. These two boys are quickly facing the reality that they may not get chosen. They turn 14 in the fall and will age out if their forever families don’t come quickly!

Ai Update: My family has found me!

Ai is a young man who was found abandoned on January 25, 2007. According to his physical condition, his birth date was estimated to be August of 2000. He has post-operative congenital heart disease. Ai is a very bright and very cheerful boy. He loves to talk, sing, and write. He is polite to people. Before, because of the trouble with his heart disease, his physical development in various aspects was greatly affected. Compared with his peers, he was shorter and smaller, and his body was thin. His activity was also limited. Now it’s no longer the same, and since his reparative heart surgery, his body has visibly grown much taller and much chubbier. His favorite activities are swinging, soccer, and other outdoor activities. He loves to eat all kinds of food and is not picky. He wakes up at 6:30 am each day and helps the nannies do some tasks within his own abilities. He also knows to help care for the younger brothers and sisters. He is never picky and loves to eat vegetables and wheat-based food. He loves bananas. Normally he loves to exercise and also likes to watch cartoons. Ai is very well-mannered and he is very obedient. He is a very caring child. There are times when there are 6 or 7 people outside playing and Ai will play and go back and forth and after a few minutes, he will come out from the room with several yogurts and pass one out to each person and at that time, we know that even though Ai doesn’t like to talk, his heart is brilliant. This precious little boy’s file is marked “Special and he can share his joy which is very hard to come by. His file is ready for a family that already has their file logged in.
