It has been a very exciting time for the families in our China LID track adoption program, as we’ve recently received several files for LID kids from our orphanage partnerships! As each file that we receive means one more child is matched with their Forever Family and one less family is waiting, this is a great time for families to sign up for our LID program and start their journey towards being matched!
While the length of every family’s adoption process varies depending on how quickly they’re able to complete their paperwork and what needs they’re open to, a shorter list of families ahead of you means you’ll be at the top of the list to review LID files once your dossier is logged in.
In the China adoption program, kids’ files are designated as either Special Focus or LID based on the severity of their needs and their age. While LID kids are typically under age 5 and have more minor or correctable needs such as cleft lip and palate, Special Focus kids are considered more difficult to place since they are older or have more moderate to severe needs.
Fiona is a precious little one who is about to turn 3 years old! She was born with Down’s Syndrome and a heart defect known as a PFO. When she was 1 years old, she would sit up on her own, crawl and babble. At the age of 18 months she could stand up with a little support and was babbling and saying simple words. Fiona has been receiving rehabilitation services and she seems to be doing great! She is walking for longer distances while holding onto some support. Fiona is described as being compliant, cute and affectionate. Although her speech is slightly delayed, communication does not seem to be an obstacle for her. Contact one of our matching specialists today if you’d like to learn more about Fiona!
