Help me adopt Effie!

Video of Effie at age 3 Effie was found abandoned at the age of 2 months outside the entrance to the Public Transportation Bureau in Henan Province, China. She was placed in an orphange where she currently lives.

She turned 4 in October, 2014.

Effie has a Tessier Facial Cleft and congenital malformation of her nose which has not been corrected.

The China Center for Children's Welfare and Adoption has granted me preliminary approval to adopt her and bring her home to live with our family.

Because Effie has significant special needs, all of my paperwork and a significant portion of the fees associated with the adoption, must be submitted prior to July 1, 2015. Another very large fee is due in late August.

As a single parent, I created my family through the miracle of adoption and have been blessed with two beautiful daughters and a fabulous young son, all from China. I also have a wonderful adult son who I adopted as a toddler here in the United States.

There is still  plenty of love to spread around and we look forward to giving this little girl the life she deserves.
