We are truly thrilled and honored to be announcing LWB’s newest adoption assistance grant recipient: Precious Pearl from Guizhou.
Six year old Pearl is currently living with a loving foster care family. She has lower limb paralysis, a result of post-operative surgery and spina bifida. However, she has determination and spirit in spades!
We first met her back in March 2011, when we visited her orphanage with the desire to set up a foster care program. Then she was shy and cautious, maybe skeptical of us all. However, we saw her open up and get comfortable in her new surroundings, and it brought us such joy to see her true self start to show.
In 2013 we were overjoyed to be able to provide her a wheelchair so that she could be pushed around and taken outside more easily. With the help from a generous donor, we should soon be able to provide her a wheelchair that will allow her greater independence.
Due to her immobility, Pearl is unable to attend school. In the future, we would love to see her have this opportunity — but she may need to be adopted to have this chance.
In March 2014, we were excited to find out she was ready to be matched with a family and waited hopefully for her to be chosen.
Several months later, Pearl has seen a number of her friends leave when they were adopted. She is still waiting patiently for a family to call her own.
We, however, are not as patient as Pearl. Because of a recent fundraiser we are able to offer her an adoption assistance grant of $4,000 towards her adoption!
Please share Pearl’s story and the news of her grant to ensure her the best possible chance for a forever family of her own.
