Look at that sweet smile!
Adorable Naomi, born April of 2010, is a gentle and shy girl who likes to help take care of the younger children. She loves her teachers and is especially good about sharing her toys and food with the other children. Naomi is quiet, but she does speak in sentences and can ask and answer questions.
When she came to the orphanage, she had a scar on her lower back that doctors determined was from surgery for spina bifida. An MRI from August of 2016 showed she has a tethered cord. She can walk with braces on her legs and support of a push toy or walker.
Naomi’s balance has continued to improve over the years. She does use a wheelchair sometimes and she can control it very well.
Naomi receives her schooling through the orphanage and has learned how to count and recognize colors. She obeys the rules and cooperates with the other children to finish group projects. She can dress and undress herself and is very good about cleaning up after herself too.
Naomi really enjoys going outdoors and playing with and making towers with blocks. Naomi could thrive in a loving family with access to good medical care and educational supports!
There is a $1,000 agency grant for Naomi’s adoption with Madison Adoption Associates. Other grants may be available based on the adoptive family’s circumstances. Agency grants are awarded as agency fee reductions. MAA also partners with the Brittany’s Hope Foundation for matching grants, which are given out twice a year January and July) and to families that are officially matched with a child.
Naomi needs a family with an approved home study to be able to move forward with adopting her. If you have an approved home study or a home study in process and are interested in adopting Naomi, please fill out a free PAP Waiting Child Review Form, which can be found here.
