|This is sweet "Emily" - wearing a "Gettysburg" shirt|
As I wrote about in part 1 of this 3 part post - today was a day filled with many emotions! While at the social welfare institute (a.k.a.= orphanage), Miss R wanted Dave (our friend/producer) to do another "Find Me" trailer to advocate for a very sweet girl.
Miss R told us that every time a family comes through to visit the orphanage she asks if she has a family yet? She desperately, desperately wants a family of her own. She is a beautiful twelve year old with soo much potential. Her teachers report that she a constantly happy and so very helpful with the little ones there.
Dave was able to do a "quick interview" (with dear Miss R translating). As she told a little about herself and wanting a family, Merle and I had to literally walk away because of sobbing. Miss R was crying and trying to translate at the same time. We have given her the English name of "Emily" to refer to her.
Dave captured her singing with the little children and doing a little dance to show the pre-schoolers how it's done. Like the other 799 children, she deserves a family. They are currently trying to get all of her paperwork together. If you know of someone or know someone who might know someone who is interested in adopting a precious older child, please contact me!! She will "age out" in only a year or year and a half then it will be too late for her to be adopted! Please, please let's not let that happen. Emily is so precious.
