Waiting Child: Sharon

February 22, 2018 Children Who Wait 2 Comments

Seven year old Sharon has had a sad start to her life but we are hoping to find her the happy ending of a family of her own. She is a Special Focus (SF) child on Agape Adoptions’ individual list and is living in an orphanage.



Sharon has been diagnosed with disabled bilateral lower limbs and must walk with a walker. This sweet girl was abandoned at four years old. We are told that she was found low spirited, unable to walk and would not respond to questions. When she was first brought to the orphanage she was afraid and cried a lot. Over time she started to adjust to life in the orphanage and her caretakers say that she “began to open her heart to others.” She started talking and singing. Sharon worked hard to learn how to best communicate with her peers and caretakers and how to take care of herself despite her disability. As she grew she became more and more cheerful and optimistic. She is loved by her caretakers and other children in the orphanage- we are told that she is “Big Sister” to many and helps take care of the little ones. She now walks with a walker and has good self-care skills. Sharon is described as happy, talkative, active, extroverted, energetic and quick to smile. She loves singing and listening to music.



We know that this loving, helpful girl needs the safety and care that comes from a family of her own. Could that family be yours? Contact Agape Adoptions by email today or at 253-987-5804 to learn more about Sharon.

    Good Morning,
    My name is Tracey. I live in the United States in Haverhill, Massachusetts. I am 45 years old & my husband is going to be 52 next month. Sharon is a beautiful sweet looking little girl. Back in the late 90’s, I was in my late 20’s & was diagnosed with severe Endometriosis. I had 9 surgeries within a 2 year time w/ the end result being an emergency hysterectomy. My dream of having a house full of children was taken away from me. We so want to help a child/many children to have a forever home. WE JUST DON”T KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN! WE’RE ALSO WILLING TO BE FOTER PARENTS. If you have any suggestions or advice, please reply. If you see Sharon please give her a big hug for me!

      I hope you contact an adoption agency (for example Lifeline Children’s Services) with your questions. There are a lot of kids out there who need a home.
