Diana: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week
Diana is a darling girl who has certainly been through a lot in her little life. She was brought to the attention of Love Without Boundaries in March this year when she was brought to our Anhui Cleft Healing Home. Diana was so tiny, weighing a mere 2kg! In addition to having a cleft lip and palate, she was thought to have been born prematurely.
After spending a short time in the Healing Home, Diana took a turn for the worse and had to be transferred to Anhui Children’s Hospital. She was very sick indeed and spent around a month in hospital before she was finally discharged in April.
Soon upon her return to our Anhui Cleft Healing Home, she was grabbing the nannies’ attention. Diana LOVES attention, and while she is happy to be placed down in a bouncy chair, she soon shows her disapproval if the nanny does not focus her attention on her. By June, Diana was easily recognising her main caregiver. If she saw her caregiver in the room, she would start to make noise to attract her attention and her eyes would follow the nanny everywhere.
As we moved into July, Diana was making great progress and ready for surgery on her cleft lip and palate. Now that she’s had her surgery, she will ready to move to foster care in the coming month. To enable Diana to move to a loving foster family as early as possible, we need to ensure she has at least two sponsors. Each sponsor will receive monthly reports and photos so they can watch her settle and grow in her new family. Sponsorships cost $35 a month, but we are also grateful to accept donations of any size for Diana for the start up costs associated with moving her to foster care. We will need to ensure she has a crib, new clothes, bedding etc., so donations of any size would be most appreciated and can be made directly on Diana’s sponsor page. Any support for darling Diana is appreciated!
