Lucinda is 11 and has mild Cerebral Palsy. However, her medical condition does not seem to have affected her movements too much. There is a video of her walking and climbing stairs, maybe she has a slight limp. She is an active child who also loves reading, solving puzzles and drawing. She wears glasses – doesn’t she just look adorable in them? – and has some problems with expressive language but still manages to communicate well. There are concerns about some dental issues.
It would seem to me that all her medical needs are minor and very manageable. All she needs now is a loving family who believes in her and who is able to show her all the world has to offer. However, because of her orphan status and her listed medical condition, she is likely to be overlooked and disregarded in her country’s domestic adoption system. So her chance for a forever family is likely to lie in an expensive international adoption.
This is where you can help. Reece’s Rainbow has opened an adoption grant for her but it is currently at ZERO! i would like to get that to at US$50.00 by the end of September. Help me grow Lucinda‘s adoption grant!
i have fallen behind in doing my quarterly summary for funds raised for my Orphans of the Month. So sorry.
So here’s the summary for the last 5 months, April to August 2015.
In April, sweet Daphne was my Orphan of the Month. We had one sale, a large custom order, that month and raised US$75 ($67.50 after 10% was taken for the Voice of Hope – VOH – fund) for her adoption grant. It was zero when i first saw her listed. And my goal was to get to at least US$50 and because you bought, the goal was met. THANK YOU!
In May, i choose dear TannerJay to be Orphan of the Month. But there was sadly no sale in May and so he stayed on. And still no sales in June :( so over the summer he remained as Orphan of the Month. Finally a sale, another large custom order, and we managed to raise US$75 ($67.50 after VOH) for TannerJay. THANK YOU for helping to meet the goal of at least US$50.
Thank you so very much for your continued support and encouragement.
So this week i thought i feature Jewelry Crafts because i have not done so in a long time. My favourite piece of jewelry has to be bracelets, i like cute earrings and rings but what really catches my eye are funky, colourful, jingling bracelets!
Without further ado, here’s my 5 picks for #CraftJunkies Link-up Week 57 (please note that these pictures are the copyright of the creators of these crafts, i am simply using them to point you to their wonderful works, click on the pictures to go to the relevant pages):
Do you have a piece of favourite jewelry? If yes, what is it? Would you share a picture of it below? Thanks.
