This is Hope. She’s 4-years-old and currently lives in Liberia. Hope was born with a limb deformity that will require an amputation and fitting for a prosthesis to live any kind of a normal life in Liberia. Without it, her life will almost surely be spent begging on the side of the road.
Hope will be coming to live in the FullPlate Manor while she receives this amputation and the prosthesis. The pediatricians office that I work for will be coordinating her medical care, and her visa is being arranged by an amazing outreach organization.
She just needs a plane ticket to the U.S. FPD and I have never done any fundraising for any of our adoptions. Since this isn’t an adoption, we’re okay with fundraising for this little girl now.
I’ve included a hard to look at picture below. If you’re squeamish, don’t look. This is Hope’s leg. As you can see, it would be impossible to correct. Right now she drags it behind her as she scoots along the ground. She can’t walk at all. Can you imagine what her life will be like without some kind of correction?
If you would like to give Hope the gift of mobility for Christmas, please go to the link below to donate. All donations are tax deductible.
who loves having a little Hope in her life.
