2016 Impact Summary
Selfless giving makes adoptions like Dasha's possible
When Dasha first arrived at a children’s home in Kyrgyzstan three years ago, she had a number of severe health issues including fetal alcohol syndrome, vision problems, and a hole in her heart. At the age of 8 she had never been to school. Unfortunately, in Kyrgyz culture, it’s very unlikely that a child like Dasha will be adopted due to her physical issues and developmental delays.
Thankfully, a local woman named Lena wanted to adopt Dasha and thanks to a special gift, she was able to do just that! A single mom who already had several adopted children, Lena needed a steady job first before she could adopt again. With the support she received, Lena now runs a successful tutoring school and kindergarten in the village. Now Dasha has a mom for a lifetime! Thank you for making adoptions like this possible!
