In this series, each Friday, I want to share a different child with you who is available for adoption and listed through the adoption advocacy website Reece’s Rainbow. All the kids who are listed on RR from Sarah’s Covenant Homes, India, the focus of my previous posts, have been posted about, so now I am focusing on a few kids or a sibling group listed on the site each Friday going forward. When more SCH kids are listed, I’ll continue to feature them!
Please note that the names used on RR are usually not the childrens’ real names, and their real names will only be shared with seriously interested families in order to protect their identity.
Today’s featured ‘Find Me Friday’ kid is: Anna! Let’s find her family! She was born in 2009, lives in an Eastern European country, and is waiting for her family to find her. She is eligible to be adopted by large families and older parents! She’s been listed since October 2015.
Anna’s donation grant has just over $1,100, which will be a helpful to her family in getting her home!
VIDEO of Anna is also available here!
PD: Anna sits in a stroller, wearing a blue top & plaid Winnie the Pooh overalls. She has a giant smile, sandy blondish-brunette hair, and dark eyes. She is resting her hands in her lap.
Anna’s Medical History
Anna has been diagnosed with internal hydrocephalus for which she has received surgery. She also has spastic tetraparesis (cerebral palsy) with movement disorders, an open oval window (heart condition), and developmental delays. She has significant facial features of FAS (fetal alcohol syndrome); this is a cautionary disclosure only. Families should research the varying impacts of this condition.
Visitors who reported in 2015 while visiting had this to say in addition in regards to her medical needs (read the full note below):
“She is in need of urgent dental care! I have never seen such decayed teeth before. I am not sure why her mouth is so much worse than all the other children, but her mouth is really concerning. She can stand on her own, but struggles to lift and bend her legs when she is bearing weight. She has a little walker that she uses wonderfully. She can walk along a bench holding on to it, but we never saw her walk independently. From what I could tell, she does not have any limitations of her upper body.”
Other Information About Anna
PD: Anna stands on carpet, holding a caregiver’s hand. She wears a gray dress w/ pink plaid hem & front, ruffle sleeves, & a big bow. Her hair is shaved short & she looks directly into the camera w/ a mischievous look on her sweet face!
A family who met her in the summer of 2015 had this to say:
This little girl is wonderful! I have never met a child with so much personality and spunk. She absolutely loves people and is desperate for attention. I held her for most of our visitation time one day. If I tried to put her down, she demanded I pick her up again, and then she would kiss all over me. She just wanted someone to be near her. Every day, when my husband would walk through the playground gates, she would get a stern look on her face and point at him, then motion for him to come to her… NOW :). She would smile from ear to ear when he acknowledged her. You can not help but laugh when you are with her. Even the cold and distant nannies couldn’t keep a solemn expression on their faces when we interacted with her.
We never witnessed her show any aggression towards any of the children. When I would sit on the bench holding my daughter, she would try to climb in my lap as well, but she never tried to harm my daughter or push her out of the way. She is very hungry for attention and for the love of a family. She would make a wonderful daughter, and I am sure she would provide you with a lifetime of laughter.
