My Family Found Me! Jing
Jing is a 13 year old boy from Asia. He is thoughtful and kind. When he grows up he would like to be an astronomer. Jing does have disability that makes speech difficult and causes CP like symptoms in his hands and legs. We believe that it is correctable and tests are being sought. Because of his disabilities and his age many people have overlooked Jing.
In Jing’s home country the children must be matched with their forever families before their 14th birthday. Some of the requirements are:
- His parents need to be between the ages of 30 and 55.
- They must have a minimum net worth of $80,000.
- The family should have fewer than 5 children in the home.
- They must be willing to be very diligent in getting their paperwork done as time is of the essence.
We are looking for a family who knows there is room in their hearts for him. He would do well in most families but the thing he needs most is a family who will call him “son”. Interested families need to contact his adoption agency as soon as possible to begin the paperwork. They should also contact a local Hague accredited agency to begin their homestudy.
If you want to help Jing but are unable to adopt him there are several things you can do.
1.) Give: His adoption will be expensive. 100% of all donations will go directly into an account to help pay for his adoption expenses. This will cover things like; translation of documents, fingerprinting, background checks, Visas, travel, immigration paperwork and more. You may not be able to give thousands of dollars but if enough people give the equivalent of one Starbucks coffee we could fund his adoption. We already have a significant chunk of money to help with his adoption but more is needed.
2.) Pray: Pray that his adoptive family will be found and that they will be a good match for Jing.
3.) Advocate: Share Jing’s story with your friends. Go to Love One Child’s facebook page and like it, then share Jing’s story with your Facebook friends. Use your social media to give him a voice.
4.) Adopt: Jing might not be the right child for your family, look around and find the one who does fit and bring them home. No one should grow up without a family.
