If you've seen "Lucy's Puzzle Page", you'll notice that she has a lot of loving friends that have supported her and her journey home to her family. We thought that some of you friends, would like to know a little more about this very special little girl waiting for her family. This is post one of two with "Question and Answers"....
Q: When did Lucy become orphaned?
A: Around 3 months old
Q: What are Lucy's known "special needs" and what types of medical intervention are you predicting Lucy will need when she arrives home?
A: Lucy seems to have one clubbed foot and a limb difference in her legs (one leg shorter then the other) and scoliosis. Because we have limited medical info., there are a lot of unknowns related to her disability. We suspect she will need to have a fair amount of testing done so that the specialists will have better knowledge as to how to best help her.
Q: Is Lucy able to walk?
A: YES! - we have been blessed to receive short video clips and she can walk independently (albeit with a limp)
Q: Does Lucy know she has a family yet?
A: We don't think she knows yet (but will soon)
Q: How are you planning to help prepare Lucy for this HUGE transition?
A: We are planning on sending Lucy a photo book. This book will introduce her to each member of her new family as well as her home.
Q: Do you have any idea when you'll get to travel and bring Lucy Kim home?
A: While we don't know for sure because at any given time paperwork (on the American side or Chinese end) could slow -- we're anticipating it could be in August??
Part 2 of the Q&A coming soon.........STAY TUNED!
