Well, my last post was good news - a matching grant for Karina. Unfortunately, this one is bad news. Reece's Rainbow has received an update on Karina. She has survived several surgeries
-- but she does not currently qualify for adoption under the new special
needs codes :( So as of now, she will not be available for adoption
until age 5, in late 2014. So, she is now "on hold," pending either her fifth birthday, or changes in the laws of her country.
Thank you to those you donated - she did receive about $60 in the few days that the matching grant was up, and that money (and the match for it) will be held for until she is available for adoption again. In the meantime, all we can do is pray for Karina & her health, and for the special needs list in her country to be expanded so that she does not have to wait two and a half years for family.
