Due to an unfortunate accident in a foster home in another part of China,a nation wide policy is taking effect requiring children in foster care to be returned to state run orphanages. My friends sister lives in China and fosters four special needs children. She had to return Abigail to the orphanage, whom she's had for five years).
This is Abigail. She is seven years old now and has Down Syndrome. She is healthy and smart and such a little cutie ! Her foster mom was told that she has been a big help with the other children entering the orphanage from foster care. She knows English and Mandarin too.
Her name is Shen Zhiwu from Shenyang, China and has recently been added to the list and is available for adoption.
Our hearts break that Abigail was taken from a loving, sweet home and separated from the only mother and family she has ever known.
