It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of “Annabelle” Lee;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.
We have taken a few liberties with this section of Poe’s poem “Annabel Lee,” but it resonated with us as we watched a new video of Annabelle from our education program in Wuchuan, Guangdong province. Nine-year-old Annabelle is much loved by all of us, and we hope for her to experience the love of a family soon too!
We hope that our readers will take a minute or two to watch this beautiful and composed girl shine. Annabelle seems extremely eager to show an adoptive family all that she can do, and she reveals her bright personality and independence. We hope it brings Annabelle to life for those of you following our blog or who have read about Annabelle in our 2009 Annual Report.
Annabelle has been waiting since June 2010 for a family to find her file and know she is the right fit for their family. Please feel free to share her video and other blog posts as well: “Our Bright and Brave Annabelle” and “Grants for Annabelle and Rochelle.” The grant for $4,200 from WACAP is still in effect for Annabelle and could be a tremendous help to a family interested in pursuing her adoption!
