Regina, A Precious Angel Of Hope For A Forever Family

Posted: Updated:
When you talk to those who know this week’s Wednesday’s Child best, they describe Regina (2004) as a precious angel of hope. This description is no doubt based in part on the determination this little one has shown during her short life.

Regina was born very premature and is limited in most daily living skills. She has been diagnosed with encephalopathy, seizure disorder, cortical blindness and lower hip dislocation. Despite all this, Regina will use what capabilities she has – sometimes a simple smile – to communicate when she is content.

Regina is dependent upon a g-tube for feeding and a trach tube for oxygen. Still, she enjoys being taken for strolls outside. Regina needs to be in a home where she can be nurtured through holding and human touch and we are looking for a permanent family with both patience and determination that will invest in helping Regina become more responsive to stimulation and an engaging member of the family.

This little one has more than her share of difficult conditions and will need on-going medical attention, so we’re looking for a family who will help share her burden and ensure her needs are met. There is training and support available for those special families who are able and willing to embrace children with medical needs like Regina’s into their home and lives.

    This week's Wednesday's Child is another sample of just how strong the human spirit is even in the earliest stages. Samajai (2012) has been negotiating many medical issues since his beginning, including Intrauterine Growth Restriction, Microcephaly, Goldenhar Syndrome, an ear anomaly, hypospadius, a ventricular septal defect, a cleft palate and a rib/sternum anomaly.

    This week we want to make a federal case for Joseph (1998) finding a forever family, so we obtained the necessary clearances to accompany Joseph to the Los Angeles Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). And during our friendly investigation, we found Joseph to be a dynamic teen with a good bit of focus and determination for someone his age.

    Los Angeles used to be a major venue for championship boxing. From the 1930s through the 1970s, there were prize fights nearly every night in metropolitan Los Angeles, primarily at the Olympic Auditorium in Downtown Los Angeles.

    Khalid & Ah'Niyah Want To Go Back To School, And A Forever Home

    We're in the hazy days of August and soon it will be back-to-school for many children… or the very first day of school for kids like Khalid (2009), who will be starting kindergarten soon. But before he heads off to school, we swooped up Khalid and his baby sister Ah'Niyah (2011) for a day of fun and play at Pelican Pier at Shoreline Village in Long Beach, California.
