"How much tragedy can one family and one child endure? Recently we shared with
you the unexpected drowning of Curtis Waters. If that was not painful enough,
the family was processing the adoption of Lillianna. Due to the needs of the
this family, they can no longer proceed with Lillianna's placement. They are
So are we.
This is the THIRD family that Lillianna has lost. She was abandoned by her
birth family in the most dismal of places. She met her first American adoptive
family just before her second birthday. They apparently felt her need was just
too much for them and they disrupted the adoption and went home without a child.
Now she has lost another family and that loves her so much and she needs a new
placement. She has imperforate anus and has had surgery in Shanghai which
completed the first stage of the 3 stage surgery to repair her need. She
currently has a colostomy. We were trying to get her home to have the next
surgeries here but if she has to wait much longer, she will need to have those
done in China.
All the agency fees for Lillianna are anticipated to be covered with donations
and grants. The CCCWA has given us 30 days to find a new match for her.
I have put her pictures in the .Special Focus 3 photo album including an updated
one of her. This child absolutely needs the angels to attend her to help her
You can contact Stefani at Stefani @ infowest dot com.
Children's House is wonderful and Stefani loves each of the children she is
entrusted with. Please help find Lillianna's family.
this is from the Mom, Cindy....
I have followed this group, asked questions, and enjoyed the kindness that
all have extended.
> My husband and I were at the i800a approval stage to adopt a beautiful 4.5
year old little girl
> From china. She is in foster care, has had a protective colostomy but no pull
> She is described as very bright, very clever.
> My husband died June 16 in a tragic white water rafting accident in Colorado
while we were on vacation. I am heartbroken, and left to watch my 4 year old
daughter and 14 year old son struggle to understand. I am now a single mother,
and we are 3 souls just trying to keep breathing. I cannot complete this
adoption now, but so care for this little girl.
> Thru various sources, the agency fee will b covered. She is with Childrens
> I am asking if anyone here feels they could parent her, take her with their
other child to Cincinnati, that would be ideal. I wish for her a family that
understands his defect and is not frightened by it. We would have been a perfect
family for her. But we are now not the same family. Please contact me if you
wish any further info or contact info for agency.
