A 12 year old girl needs a special family!

sillouette siblings

A wonderful family decided to adopt a sibling group of four from Bulgaria. They had no idea that the children had been raised in four different foster homes and really did not know each other until the family went to adopt them. They thought all would be fine and the children would bond when they came back to the US; after all they were siblings!! However, sometimes life just does not happen as you hope.

Hannah, the eldest sibling, just has had a lot of trouble bonding to the younger siblings. As time has gone on, it has become apparent that the younger three siblings have been pushing Hannah’s buttons and it is no longer a good option for her to stay in the same placement.  The adoption has been finalized and the adoptive family is looking for a new placement that is better able to meet her needs.

  Hannah is a sweet and fun-loving young lady. She likes to have fun, be silly, cook, do fiber crafts, read, watch movies, and do gymnastics. She also likes to experiment with hair styling, makeup, and clothes. She talks a lot, loves to cuddle, and has no problem chatting about her world. She is a dominant personality and likes to be in charge but she doesn’t like new situations or meeting too many new people. Her goal after high-school is to become a hairstylist.

Due to the known special circumstances of this case, a lower fee structure will apply.

They are requesting the family has no younger children than Hannah. If they have older children, they need to be at least 3 years older than Hannah.  A home with no other children would also be a great match for Hannah. 

Hannah would benefit from counselling with a therapist familiar with international adoption.

If you are homestudy ready and feel like Hannah might be a great fit for your family, call Kids First Adoption; INNA PECAR at (317) 843-2300 for more information.

If you are interested in adoption situations; my closed facebook group is a place where some situations are shared as well 🙂 It is just another free resource for you!

Carved in Stone

Hit the beginning of the four year mark this spring of Ray’s cancer diagnosis. Four years of miraculous survival, and constant chemotherapy combinations. In January, Ray’s immunotherapy, Daralex (duratumamab) as a single agent with dexamethasone (steroid) was showing it had done all it could do to reduce his cancer load ( he has multiple myeloma). The fear from past patients’ histories was that the plateau would be followed by a sharp rise in cancer cells, so another chemotherapy drug, velcade, was added to his mix. The velcade is administered by shot once a week, requiring weekly blood tests. His infusion of daralex is once a month… I know it sounds confusing, but since this blog is somewhat of a diary too, bear with me 🙂 Since adding velcade, Ray’s quality of life has taken a hit. He had velcade once before and it causes neuropathy (cramping and tingling …dropping things, weakness in his legs). This time however, it is also causing him to have diarrhea and nausea for a few days afterward.

Our tire shop continues to struggle. You know the song “if it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all?” Well it kind of applies to us. Our bank has been wonderful, being very patient with us, trying to help us keep not only the business, but our home, which was used as collateral (that is another story). Somehow, only really by the goodness of the bank, and God’s grace, we have continued plodding along, week after week, paying  pending shut off notices to keep the water, gas, and electric on …not only at the business, but our house as well.

As a result, even though Ray really can’t watch the kids very easily, I felt maybe if I got a job… at least we could buy some groceries and gas… Knowing I couldn’t get a job where I was integral to the function of the business, I applied to serve breakfast at a local hotel… one of my friends is the manager and she knows the situation and how I might have to take off at a moment’s notice if Ray got really sick…

So, when I went to work,  Ray has had four days a week of watching kids. It really takes its toll on Ray. He is basically delirious when I get home, he just can’t go any more. I can’t keep up with the paperwork at the shop, and grandma, Ray’s mom was not getting the extra things done that desperately need done…

I was beginning to feel a ton of pressure, like when Ray forgot he had to be home to get the kids off the bus, when he was so tired that I know he barely could stay awake to watch the kids…and I would be at work thinking the kids might not be ok… or Ray was sick and I was worried he was not ok… The pressure of trying to pay the bills… I kept having panic attacks, pressure, and of course menopause was not helping… I kept telling Ray something’s got to give…

I went to work on a Saturday and felt so sick. Pressure in my chest, nauseated, sweaty, weak, I felt like I was going to pass out. I called Ray and asked him to take me to the hospital. On admission, my blood pressure was 212/115, something was giving, but I did not mean for it to be ME!! After tests, my heart is fine, my kidneys are fine, but my blood pressure is NOT. So, I am now adjusting to a bp medicine and trying to figure out how to stuff things back into the boxes where they belong! Somehow, menopause and this stress has made it so that I can’t keep things in their place, the neat little boxes we keep the different parts of our life are just spilling all over the place and I am finding even the slightest bit of stress in one area is making it so I can’t function well in another. Pray for me PLEASE…

Meanwhile, Micah had been watching Ray’s mom at her house.  She has been getting weaker; Micah has been getting sick of 24 hour care with just weekend breaks… so we moved her in…

And as for Ray, his cancer numbers are once again decreasing and the specialist is talking stem cell transplant if the trend continues, which has its own set of stresses to be sure…

But, like water on a rock, eventually a channel forms as small particles are carried away by the current… even a slow current can change the face of a rock. It is the continuous, unrelenting movement that carves its name into the once blank canvas… When one member of the family has cancer or any relentless disease or condition, the whole family is affected; it carves its name on the hearts of the family. Maybe that is what life is all about… written on our hearts…now that sounds very familiar…

So glad as unrelenting as this cancer is; and as busy as it is writing words on my heart… God’s love is a perfect match…Steady, unchanging, relentless, constant, omnipresent…and God writes “MINE.”

Paw Petrol and Curious George watching family needed

thIQO943FX

At fourteen, this little one is requesting a new family. She is in a loving family with younger children, having been adopted in 2014 from another country. She has multiple special needs and her adoptive family really feels it is best for her to be placed with a family without the jealousy she feels towards the younger children.  She wears glasses and uses a walker only in school (at home she climbs the steps independently).

She likes to color, do puzzles, play with her ipad and watch  Paw Petrol and Curious George on the TV ! She is in 8th grade in school in a self-contained classroom. She can read a few sight words and can only write her name.  She is well loved in her classroom by her teachers, helping them. She loves adult interaction and soaks it up like a sponge.

She has both medical and trauma related needs. She has an extensive list, but do not let this prevent you from seeing the beautiful girl she is beneath the labels… Spina Bifida, FAS, PTSD, RAD and anxiety.

Her family is willing to consider guardianship with the right family, but prefers a straight adoption placement.  If you are homestudy ready, have current clearances and references; please send your information and questions to: Joygirllea@gmail.com

Please share if she is not your little girl. Families in this situation are facing a lot of heartbreak and any support that we can give is so appreciated.  You know the saying … walk a mile in their shoes…

looking for a special family for a special girl

th[7] (2)This little girl might be a great fit for your family!! She loves music and her love language is FOOD!!  She loves to learn with a consistent and predictable school day. She loves water, showers, puddles and pools… She can eat with her hands and sip with a straw, but needs hand over hand for utensils. She is not potty trained, but shows some signs she may be able to be in the future.  She is fully ambulatory, but uses a wheelchair for her safe place. She is a curious child and loves going out and about.

Nine years old, adopted from Eastern Europe, diagnosed with global delays and autism ( FASD is possible and suspected, but not diagnosed) needs a family that is willing to continue ABA, OT and speech/language therapies. Her placement was going well until she suffered from a traumatic event (burns that were an accident) and it decimated the bonding that had occurred due to the need for frequent dressing changes and the pain associated with that.  The therapies she needs, the family can no longer afford and with the new bonding issue, they just feel that she is so ready for a family, but they no longer are the best family for her.

If you are interested in this adoptive placement, please contact: ON HOLD while assessments are being completed

012314_1934_ThePriceofa2.png

If this little one is not your daughter, please please pray for her current family and their heartache and healing; pray for the families reading this description and considering bringing this precious girl into their home; and most of all pray for the little girl, that God would do a mighty work in healing her heart, her spirit and her ability to trust. That she would have an understanding and acceptance of love that she is currently struggling with… God is able.

And share.
