Help bring Suzette to the US!

Last year in July, I began a long and paperwork intensive project to adopt Suzette from China.  I fell in love with this little girl that was many, many miles away and I knew I had to help bring her to the U.S.  After over of year of stressful and difficult paperwork we are about to finally meet our new little girl!  We travel to China on September 8th and our "gotcha" date is September 11, 2017!  That's less than a month away.  

Suzette was abandoned at the hospital after her mother gave birth and has been living in an orphanage ever since.  She turned 2 years old in May and lives in Suzhou which is close to Shanghai.  I am told she loves to play outside, her favorite colors are pink and red, and she enjoys the company of adults.

Suzette also has some medical conditions that will need treatment upon arrival in the U.S.   She has a heart condition, rectal issues, and kidney issues.  All which seem very managable but will need the care of doctors in the U.S. to help her.

It takes a community of people to help raise a child, and this could be an opportunity for you to contribute to help improve a childs life. 

Any funds donated will be used for adoption fees, medical, and travel expenses. 

Financial donations to offset the high expenses will gratefully be accepted in leiu of other gifts.

We can't wait to continue to share our journey with you as we get our daughter.  We appreciate any support you can give in thoughts and prayers.
