I just received an email from the placing agency…they still need a family for her, so please do not delay if you hear God saying GO GO GO…
please do not STOP STOP STOP
Fear many times paralyzes us, but the baby cannot wait. She needs a family now, not in six months, not next year: NOW.
Baby K is a sweet, 2 month old, Hispanic baby girl who was born with Apert’s Syndrome. Although she has a cleft palate, she has taken all her feedings by bottle with a special nipple. K is currently receiving feedings by NG tube as she is hospitalized for a respiratory illness. She is also receiving supplemental oxygen. It is not known at this time if K would continue to need tube feedings and/or supplemental oxygen. Her future medical needs would include neurology follow up, and plastic surgery for her palate, skull and fingers. She’ll also need physical therapy to help her reach her full potential.
Preference will be given to families with a current home study, although all families will be considered. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In your initial outreach, please give us some information about your family including how many children are currently in the home. Please allow 48 hours for a response. Feel free to pass along this information to help us in our networking efforts. We appreciate your help on behalf of Baby K in helping find her forever family!
Can’t you see her? She needs someone to be there no matter what she will face. I don’t know if you read my blog from yesterday with the description of Apert Syndrome.
Strikingly, they have normal or slightly below normal mental cognition.
Can you imagine YOU with your thoughts facing a future like hers alone??
