Advocating for Sweet Little Girl-File Soon to Be Returned!

I think it is appropriate to say that God has truly changed me over the years. One of the changes occurred when He led me to adoption. Not just adoption by Him into His family, but also through us adopting children into our family. I am changed. In many ways. Although He has changed me into a better person than I could ever be on my own, some of the changes have come at a price. Oh, it is by no means a bad thing! It just means that in some cases, your eyes are wide open and you see things in a way you have never seen before. God has given me a passion for children, ALL children. This shows that God truly has a sense of humor because I remember as a young adult deciding I would not have children. I have four children. I'd have more, but only if it is His will. Trust me when I say that I know God can do what He says He can do!
All of my children are miracles. All children are miracles. There is a miracle child, currently waiting at Christian World Adoption. She is a beautiful, 8 year old girl. She has a condition known as Type B Mediterranean Anemia or otherwise known as Thalassemia. I don't have any specific information regarding the severity of this condition. I do know that it can range from a minor, carrier trait to something quite severe. This child looks healthy enough in the photos/video, but I have not reviewed her file to know any specifics. In fact, I will not be able to review her file as that would require Captain Daddy to sign a form that would allow us to review her file. At this point, there is no way that I would even approach Captain Daddy to sign this form. Captain Daddy says we are done adding to our family. So unless God grants me a RHW (reluctant husband waiver), I will have to say we are through. So at this point all I can do is advocate for this precious girl. If you are interested, please go the the CWA website then click on the "Waiting Children Photolist" link. Scroll down and click on the Hope Project Children. At the bottom of the page you will have to request permission to view the photolist. CWA will then email to you the access information. Once you have access to the China Hope Project Children, click on the July 2009 list. The sweet little girl is C0907-25. Just look at that precious smile!
Female. Type B Mediterranean anemia.DOB: 9-5-2001She was sent to the children welfare center on Sept 29, 2001, now she is living with foster family. She is a student of first grade. She is a little slow in learning but she is a hard working girl. She is serious about learning. She can manage her daily life and also tries to help sometimes such as washing clothes, sweeping the floor, cleaning dishes. She is a cheerful girl and loves to laugh. She likes to do rope skipping with other kids; she likes to play with dolls and other kids’ games. She is a polite girl and is polite with others. She loves to help other kids. She respects teachers in school. All teachers, foster parents and other students love her very much.
We did not use CWA during any of our adoptions. So I don't have any information on the agency to pass along. I haven't heard anything negative regarding them. If you would like to know more about Thalassemia you may try the following links:
I know her file is going to be returned very soon (any day).
I look at her photo every day and pray for this sweet, precious child to find her family. Please take a look.
I pray this precious girl finds a family, and soon.
I wish we were that family.
