Renae {Urgent! Aging Out!}

Renae is a lovely girl whom we met at one of our new partnership orphanages last time we were in China. She turned 13 in September, so the time to find her family is limited! A family must adopt her before her 14th birthday or she will no longer be eligible for adoption.




Renae attends public middle school where she is reported to be above average in her school work and this was certainly borne out in the cognitive testing our team did with her. She seemed to be very smart!

She loves to read, and while she has friends at school, sometimes she would rather read by herself than do homework with her friends.



When we first met her she was very reserved, but as she watched us interacting with the other children she became more comfortable and ended up making a necklace with the beads we had with us.

Renae has a repaired cleft lip and palate. She also wears glasses which is something we don't see often in orphanages!



Renae needs a family! Could she be your daughter? We need help sharing Renae's story so that she does not reach her 14th birthday without a family!
