For those of us who are lucky enough to have a loving Father, we know the
feeling of love and protection. Little Zi knows this love…and misses it.
In all my years of working as an international adoption specialist, I have
heard and seen a multitude of children’s stories—some sadder
than others. Yet in all my days, no story has left me wanting a family
for a child so badly as I want one for precious 8-year-old Zi.
When Zi was born, her birth mother left her father and much older sister
to remarry. When many fathers might choose otherwise, her father raised
her and her sister as best he could. In June 2014, the family got into
a car accident that left Zi paralyzed from the waist down. Still, even
as poor as they were, her father cared for her. Tragically, her father
found out that December that he had liver cancer and died the next month.
Zi and her sister went to live with a blind uncle while officials contacted
their mother who once again refused to care for them. The children were
then admitted to an orphanage. Her sister is now 18—too young to
care for her and too old to be adopted with her.
When Zi came into care, she was in poor physical condition and would not
speak. After being in the care of the orphanage, she is active and cute
again, ready to smile, and has a good spirit. The orphanage personnel
say she is very smart and cute, introverted and shy, can have a temper,
and usually helps the nurturer look after the younger children. She likes
writing, drawing, listening to music, watching TV and chatting. Her life
is fulfill and happy with the exception of one important aspect—a family.
While single women can adopt from China, International Adoption Net feels
this child needs both a mother and a father so she can once again have a Daddy
. Could this little girl wrap your fatherly hand around her finger?
