It has been a while since I posted any new sweet little faces. A couple of weeks ago, my heart jumped when I read the advocacy post of another darling deaf waiting child. When I reached out to her advocate, I was told the agency also has 2 other deaf children on their list. Of course, I firmly believe that every deaf child deserves a family, so I had to share all three of them.
Wasatch provided me with a lot of information regarding each of these children so what I am sharing is just a snippet of their advocacy information. I also have video links to each of these beautiful girls to share with interested families. If any of these three beautiful children touch your soul, please leave a comment, send me an email or reach out directly to Kathy at Wasatch.
Meg (age 3)
In December 2014, Meg was diagnosed as hearing loss of both ears. This cute little girl is unable to hear all kinds sounds, and the nannies feel sorry for her at the thought of it. Because she can’t hear it, she doesn’t speak, and is unable to express her needs by languages. Now Meg is 3 years old, and is active and cute, clever and restless. She is passionate for life, likes new things, likes to play with the children’s slide and bright toys, particularly the balls. She is able to walk alone, and can take off trousers. She is difficult to communicate with others using the language due to hearing loss. She is lower in reaction to the things than the peers. The nanny cares this cute girl carefully. She lives happily with other children in the institute. Grant funding available to qualifying families up to $2500.
Suzy (age 1)
AN UPDATE FROM MARCH 2016 SAYS:
When we call to Suzy and talk to hear, she reacts to us. Although her medical doctors suspected she had brain damage, now her situation is much better and she has good physical development. She can stand with help, but can not walk or talk.
