Originally we were going to write about Danika last year, but Russ*a put the ban on US adoptions and that stayed our hand. But since one of our Bring Hope members lives in the UK and we know the UK as well as Canada may still adopt this girl then that leaves some hope she'll be adopted.
But she must be adopted with her little brother who has no special needs.
Danika was born in April 2008. She has brown eyes and dark brown hair, although based on her picture I would call it light brown hair. She is said to have astigmatism and Hall's contractures (arthrogryposis). She is described as "communicative and friendly."
Abrehem was born a year later (April 2009). He has gray eyes and a calm nature.
Would you share this post with any Canadian or UK friends who are considering adoption?
They were listed as being in "Region 13." Even though they are no longer being actively advocated for on Reece's Rainbow, their profile is still there and that's where to get a bit more information on how to continue with the process. Go here for their profile.
Obviously their chances of being adopted together and under the US ban are low. But sharing about them can bring them hope!
***Since the US-based organizations cannot be involved, there's no way to accept money towards these children's adoption. So if you have your $12 donations ready and want to support a family adopting an AMC child, please go here to support the Schmitt family who are $5,000 short and pick up their two sons (one with CP and one with AMC) in about 8 weeks. Thanks!
