Suzy: Look With the Heart
But the eyes are blind. One must look with the heart. — Antoine de Saint-Exupery
We think that once you read about Suzy, you will agree that this quote describes how she lives her life. Like any typical pre-teen, Suzy’s favorite activities are chatting with her friends and listening to music. She has a loving heart for others, especially her close friends and foster family. Suzy is different from many other typical teens, however, in that she does not have a family of her own. In addition to that rather large obstacle, Suzy is blind.
Currently, Suzy lives in our Zhaotong Foster Care Program in Yunnan Province where she attends a school for the blind and is often at the top of the class. Music and Chinese are her favorite subjects, with math and English being somewhat more difficult for her. In this photo, you can see her working at school with one of her teachers and her favorite fluffy bear, who sometimes keeps her company during the day!
Suzy’misses helping to care for her baby foster sister, who was recently adopted. Described as someone who listens well and with her heart, Suzy is also said to be quiet, kind, and a bit shy.
Suzy would benefit so much from the opportunities afforded to her by a forever family of her own. Time is of the essence for Suzy as she is currently twelve years old and is only eligible for adoption until she turns fourteen. Please help us find a forever home for Suzy!
