Chelsie: Longing to Learn
While many children in our families are getting ready to go back to school but wishing summer would not end, seven-year-old Chelsie’s dream of attending school has not yet been realized due to being wheelchair-bound.
Our reports indicate that Chelsie is an extremely bright girl who is eager to learn. Currently she lives with a foster family in a rural area outside of Hefei. Chelsie is learning to read and write at home with their help and can now read some simple children’s books. Chelsie draws beautifully and enjoys making pictures. This determined girl has a strong desire and ability to learn.
After spinal surgery, Chelsie came into LWB’s medical program with an inability to walk. She has been evaluated by doctors and had surgery on her foot. We are hoping that there might be a way to help Chelsie go to school next semester. When she heard this news Chelsie became very excited.
Even more exciting is the news that Chelsie is now available for adoption on the shared list! Imagine the opportunities available to this determined, goal-oriented girl if she were to have a permanent, adoptive family who could help make her dream of going to school and other dreams come true.
