We need your help. A child we know, a nine year old boy with scoliosis, has been waiting for his family to arrive. But, the family approved to adopt him cannot complete the adoption for reasons that have nothing to do with this child.
We are beyond heartbroken, because this is the second family that has backed out on this child at the 11th hour. He is a smart, kind and completely adorable little boy whose entire demeanor changed when he learned that a family wanted him. He was beaming in his update photos. Now, if we cannot find parents for him, he will have to be told that no one is coming after all.
If you know anyone who is paper ready, or almost paper ready, who might speak up for him, PLEASE have them contact us right away. Nancy and I are quite distraught over this, because we have met this child and spent time with him. He has waited so long and has been so hopeful. We thought he would be part of a family by now.
If someone can adopt him, there will be no agency fee and there is some extra funding available. We did some fund raising for this child because we really felt for him and we knew that not many families would be open to a boy of his age.
If someone who is pre approved to adopt would be open to adopting a second child on the same trip, that may be possible. He's in Jiangsu Province.
It is very painful to think that this child will be left behind...please let families know about him. If you think he could be your son, call us at 845-727-0500 or email homelandadoption@ aol.com

This little girl, whose name is Victoria, is ten years old and was adopted from Russia at the age of eight.
She has been diagnosed with
. Victoria excels academically but struggles
with peers and social settings. Her original adoptive family and her therapist have been working with her
to decrease behaviors related to institutionalization—i.e., lying, stealing, poor problem-solving, etc.
Victoria's placing agency, Kentucky Adoption Services, feels she would do best in a home where she is
the youngest child. KAS is seeking an older and experienced couple who are willing to devote the necessary
time and guidance to helping Victoria grow into a successful adult. We are attaching a picture of Victoria.
