Klodia, born in September of 2007, is a sweet girl who loves playing games and chatting with her primary caretaker. She is cooperative and gets along well with other children.
Klodia is outgoing and helpful. She likes to smile and laugh and when she does you can see her adorable dimples!
Klodia wakes up at 6:30, has breakfast at 7:00, goes to school at 7:30, has lunch at 12:00, takes a nap at 13:00, goes to school at 14:00, has supper at 18:00, does homework at 19:00, and goes to bed at 21:00. She is active in many outdoor activities. She can run and jump, but is best at jumping rope. She can jump more than 100 jumps per time.
Her language development is right on target with peers her age. She communicates well with everyone and can express her feelings well too. Klodia is currently studying in 3rd grade and she is keeping up with her peers there. She has no problems finishing her homework.
Klodia is from an orphanage that partners with Madison Adoption Associates. Her orphanage wasn’t sure what diagnosis to give her. When she was a baby, they thought possibly Down syndrome, but that is not accurate. They say she is currently healthy, but has a facial difference. A physician who looked at Klodia’s pictures and videos mentioned hypertelorism, though she has not been formally diagnosed.
Klodia’s orphanage feels that she is healthy and has said that she really wants to be adopted!
This past summer, Klodia and a couple of her friends from the orphanage participated in a Bring Me Hope camp. Klodia’s Bring Me Hope volunteer said: “Klodia was very very scared at first, but once we assured her she was safe, she blossomed. Klodia is so fast to learn the rules of card games, movements to songs, and English words. She remembered the path to the dining hall after the first time and it is a long, complicated way. She loved the waterside and tactile crafts, like slime and kinetic sand. She eats more than any teen boy, including every vegetable put in front of her. She is a wonderful child.”
There is a $1,000 agency grant for Klodia’s adoption with Madison Adoption Associates. Klodia has a $3,000 grant available with Love Without Boundaries as well!
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.
