**AGING OUT** Rory is a sweet girl from China who is 13 years old. Rory will age out of the China adoption system in May 2018 if she is not adopted before then.
Rory lived with her birth parents until they both died in 2008. Rory then went on to live with her grandmother until she died in 2013. She lived with an aunt and uncle for a while, but when it was discovered that she had HIV (human immunodeficiency virus), she was forced to drop out of school. Rory’s aunt and uncle did not feel they could care for Rory because of her having HIV, so they decided to send her to the orphanage, and they signed off on allowing her to be adopted internationally.
Rory is now living in an orphanage with a program called Aids Care China, so she is receiving the care that she needs for her HIV. She has been taking anti-viral medication since September 2011.
Rory is overall in good physical condition. She is cheerful, sensible, extroverted, responsible, and helps take care of the other children in the orphanage. Rory is in 6th grade in school. She likes to sing, dance, paint and play sports.
