Saving Grace

A few months ago we started caring for a baby girl that we nicknamed Grace. She was born to a 14-year-old mother, but was abandoned at the hospital with a note on the birth certificate that said she was a donation to the hospital. A brain scan found that she might have a developmental birth defect called Schizencephaly. In addition, a doctor told us she may have complete hearing loss and/or blindness. We know she can hear because she loves music and listens to us read to her every day, but we aren't sure how her vision is yet. We met with a major adoption agency that is legally authorized by the Thai government to facilitate international adoptions and they added her to their special needs program. The prospect of finding a family is not good, but they reaffirmed their commitment to help find one while we continue to provide her with care. We need to see a specialist to get a more specific diagnosis and treatment plan, but Bangkok is currently on lockdown with the recent Covid outbreak. We hope to get her to see a specialist there soon. In addition, we are applying for a royal medical grant that would provide Grace with free top of the line medical care. We don’t know all of her physical challenges yet, but we are committed to doing everything we can to give her the highest quality of life we possibly can because EVERY life matters. Thank you for helping us support infants like Grace!
