Last fall we featured lovely twelve-year-old Suzy on our blog in Suzy: Look With the Heart. Suzy is part of our Zhaotong foster care program in Yunnan and attends a boarding school for the blind with her foster brother, who is also completely blind. She has just enjoyed spending the spring holiday home from boarding school with her foster grandmother, with whom she is very close. When her grandmother’s back aches from doing the household chores, Suzy is so kind to her and rubs her back to help her relax. After meal times, she also tries to help her foster grandmother by straightening up the kitchen. She knows where all of the bowls and kitchen pans belong and can put them all away on her own.
We were so excited to receive these videos of Suzy this past week! The first one shows her braille notebook and, more importantly, shows her singing like an angel. Suzy’s song begins at around 2:00 into the video, and we know you won’t want to miss hearing her sweet voice!
Below is another video of Suzy walking into her foster home. She is radiant!
Like most teenagers, Suzy loves the telephone and spends a lot of time talking to her friends. She also likes listening to pop music on the radio and on the television. At school she works hard so that her foster grandmother will be proud of her. But home is where the heart is, and she always looks forward to the weekend when she returns home to her grandmother.
Suzy is still looking for her forever family, but as she is getting closer to the adoption cutoff age of fourteen, she does not have a lot of time left to find a permanent home. Will you help us share her beautiful song and spread the word that Suzy is waiting on the shared list?
