ASL needs a loving family!

15-year-old ASL needs a loving, adoptive family! She has dreams of going to the beach and Disneyland for the first time. Despite overcoming significant hurdles growing up, ASL is adaptable, calm, and family-oriented. At home, she loves to draw, watch TV, create crafts, and play with pets. Her favorite subject in school is ethics because she has a strong sense of right and wrong. Teachers and caregivers say she respects authority figures and has good relationships with adults, peers, and other children. ASL is well-rounded, and she has caught up in school with her peers through diligent hard work.

ASL is a loving teen who completes her homework and chores independently. In the future, ASL hopes to travel and see the world and is considering becoming a pilot or a flight attendant. More than anything, ASL expresses an interest in finding a forever family. Could it be yours?

ASL needs a loving, adoptive family!

Please reach out to CCAI’s Colombia team immediately to learn more about ASL. She will turn 16 soon and lose eligibility to be adopted unless a family is in process for her at that time.  Please contact us for specific requirements.

In light of the many children in need of a permanent and loving family, CCAI launched its Colombia adoption program in 2020. Children eligible for adoption from Colombia tend to be older with varying degrees of medical needs. These resilient and hopeful children bring with them their rich and unique culture and history!

CCAI’s parent preparation resources give families the tools to welcome a special child into their hearts and home. Our Colombia adoption program is a fast-growing, robust program that offers both traditional and host-to-adopt adoption options for children of all ages and sibling groups!
