HOSTING ADVOCACY POST: Luo

LUO NEEDS YOUR HELP – PLEASE SHARE HER STORY! This sweet girl is almost 14, and we need to find her a family before she ages out of her eligibility for international adoption in June!

Luo is a beautiful 13 year old girl. She is able to take care of herself very well, and even helps some of the other MinLuoYan (2)children when she can. Luo’s nannies say she is very strong and brave – it doesn’t matter how far she has walked, or how tired she gets, she will continue. When she walks she will sometimes become unsteady and fall over, but she gets up quietly each time. Her nannies say it makes people admire her strength and will power.

Luo had the opportunity to be hosted in the US as part of our Summer 2015 Hosting Program. She had an amazing time here, and for her, the experience confirmed that she DOES want a family and DOES want to be adopted! Luo’s nannies told us that she has been dreaming of finding her forever family ever since she returned home from hosting. She has watched several of her friends be adopted and often asks her nannies “When is it my turn?”

MinLuoYan (3)Luo’s host family loved having her in their home, but was unable to adopt her. They shared some of their favorite things about Luo with us:
“She is so smart, always wanting to read and learn new things. She tried very hard to teach us Chinese, and she was so eager to learn as much English as possible. And my (host Mom) Chinese was the worst, and we would all end up rolling in laughter.

She is a very talented artist. She loves to draw and paint. She loves music and would sit and play our piano and sing. We loved hearing her beautiful, sweet voice flowing through our home. Her spirit just lit up our home and she has deeply touched our hearts.

Luo always helped around the house. She is very organized and tried to keep us organized. She is very independent, and takes care of herself. She takes care of all of her hygiene and grooming needs herself.

Luo has some difficulty walking long distances, but she absolutely loves going and seeing new things. She doesn’t let anything slow her down. She was always ready for the next adventure.”

Please help this brave girl find her forever family!
