Help me bring Charlie home!

Charlie was abandoned at 1 month old, likely as a result of being born intersex. They were raised as a boy for 2 years and then as a girl for 2 years and they are displaying a great deal of gender confusion.

I have been pre-approved to adopt this precious child and cannot wait to be their mom! I want to bring them here and introduce them to people of all gender identities and expressions, and help them find their true self.

Many cultures throughout history have highly valued intersex and transsexual people, including Native Americans, who called them "two-spirit" and believed them to be wise as a result of their unique perspective. 

International adoption is incredibly expensive so I need your help to fund this endeavor! Your contribution will have a direct impact on the life of one very special child (and their mom!!). Please give what you can and share with others who can do the same.
