Waiting child highlight: Tisha Urgent Medical Need

May 24, 2014 Family Found 1 Comments

UPDATE: My Family has found me!

Sweet Tisha is a two year old precious girl designated to Lifeline Children’s Services. She is diagnosed with Beta Thalassemia Major and is unfortunately not receiving optimal care for this special need. She has developmental delays, which are not surprising for her at this time. Her file also mentions anemic heart disease, which is directly related to the poorly treated Thalassemia. She desperately needs a family who can complete a medical expedite adoption and get her to the US to receive proper medical care. A family who already has a dossier logged in with the CCCWA would be ideal, although not required.


Tisha is described as a strong willed little princess who loves candy and getting her own way! She loves to be outside and is known for her “beautiful brown eyes.” Wouldn’t you agree?! She will require monthly blood transfusions, daily medication and care coordinated by a pediatric hematologist. Follow the links in this post for more information on Thalassemia. This special need can be well managed in the US and her survival truly depends on her being adopted.
