An Extra Special Going Home Barbie
For adoptive families, the Going Home Barbie presented by the White Swan Hotel is something many families keep as a treasured memory of the time when their child became part of their family. Little Miss Norah has an extra special story for her Going Home Barbie.
Miss Norah was part of three Love Without Boundaries programs. Her heart surgery was sponsored by the LWB medical program, LWB foster care sponsored a wonderful foster family for her, and her tuition was covered by an LWB education sponsor. All of her sponsors will be delighted to know Norah now has a forever family and is doing just great. Norah joined her family just as Love Without Boundaries was preparing for the 2009 Born in My Heart Auction. Her family donated their Coming Home Barbie to the Auction which brought over $200 toward sponsoring heart surgery for another child.
Norah’s Going Home Barbie not only symbolized her going home to her own family — it helped pave the way for another child’s healthy heart and hope for a permanent family. Now that is one Extra Special Going Home Barbie!
