This is Lee Lee.


She was born in late 2011 with Down’s Syndrome and wears that extra chromosome well! She currently resides in an orphanage in northeast China where she gets lots of attention and love from the orphanage staff.


She was very curious and apprehensive of us as I’m sure she had never seen any Americans. It took her a couple days to warm up to us but when she did we had a lot of fun! We never once heard her fuss or cry, she’s a very sweet little girl.


It may take her a while to smile, but it is a precious little smile when you get it! She shares a room with four little boys who treat her like a baby sister – part rival and part friend. She can not yet walk. We did see her pulling up to stand in her crib so walking is not out of the question.


When we asked about her file and whether or not she was on the list they told us that if we found her family they would prepare her file! So, here we are, searching high and low and however we know to get this sweet little girl’s face in front of everyone we know so we can find her forever family!

If you would like more information on Lee Lee please email me, Lori McMurphy.

Hoping she will be ONE LESS very soon!
