Heather is at an agency!!!!!

I got the news yesterday that Heather's adoption papers are on a rotating list the CCAA sends out to a few agencies. I had never heard of this before. Live and learn.

Heather is one of the three flowers (Jasmine and Lily are in that group too) who was born with spina bifida and who had surgery in Shanghai by Dr Lazareff from UCLA. She is a really sweet and gentle girl, who is so affectionate and is very attached to us. She loves reading and watching Wiggles and the Teletubbies. She is somewhat physically delayed because she cannot walk yet, but she is getting stronger by the day and she is standing and weight baring. She is moving herself around in the walker and her legs are getting much stronger, she could very well be walking by gotcha date. She will need some physical therapy for her right hand. You are welcome to read the blogs I have sent about her to see just how much she has improved since she first came to us at Starfish.

I love this picture of Heather because I was "attacking" her with the reindeer. The photo captures her so well since she smiles a lot and was trying to "hide" from me.

If you are interested in adopting her or you know anyone else who would be please will you contact:

Kathy Storro
WA Director and China Specialist
Small World Adoptions

I am praying that there is a family who will want to adopt and love her without reservation. It would make me so happy to know that she will also have her own forever family.

Life, Love and Laughter,
Starfish Foster Home

In three months we should be through the review room and able to look at the special needs lists through Bethany. Do you always know what agencies the children's paperwork goes to?
Also, you should come and see the blog : )

We came across your blog and have to say you are doing a great job. We have been LID since 4-4-07 and have talked about switching to Waiting Child.

Take care,
