Giada and Aurora need an adoptive family

Giada and Aurora are two loving sisters, waiting for their adoptive family. Read below and learn about these creative, imaginative sisters and help us find them a forever home!

Giada

Giada is a 15-year-old girl living in Bulgaria and waiting for her forever family! She is a bright, imaginative girl with a fantastic memory! Giada can express herself well with an extensive vocabulary and descriptive words. Because of this skill, she communicates and interacts well with her peers and teachers.  

Despite experiencing trauma and a complex background, she does her best to remain positive. Her teachers say Giada shows initiative, does well in school, and willingly attends classes. They believe that she has formed the skills needed for independent activities and life.  

Aurora

Aurora is Giada’s younger 9-year-old sister in Bulgaria. Like her sister, her intellect, memory, and imagination are well-developed, and she is academically on par with her peers.  

Aurora is a talkative and inquisitive young lady who does a great job of not interrupting others while speaking. She does her best to remain positive despite her complex background.  

Educationally, Aurora is a great reader and writer. She will be reading different books given to her by the school this summer.  

She is an independent girl like her sister but is looking for a family to show her unconditional love.  

Could you be Giada and Aurora’s family?

Giada and her sister Aurora are developmentally on par with their peers. They are sweet, kind, polite, and diligent girls. Their orphanage truly hopes they will be able to find a family!

If you can provide a loving, stable family environment for Giada and Aurora, please get in touch with our Bulgaria team!  

We cannot show any pictures of Giada and Aurora due to privacy restrictions in Bulgaria, however, our Bulgaria team has photographs, video, and information to share with interested families. 

CCAI placed its first Bulgarian child in 2015; the program has grown ever since! Like most intercountry adoption programs today, Bulgaria places older children, children with special medical needs, and/or sibling groups. The most significant “need” is for families open to children eight and above and children with medical conditions. In addition, Families open to children with Down syndrome can often be matched in as little as 6-12 months from dossier submission!
