The Story

Mike and I adopted a beautiful Chinese baby girl who was born with albinism (lacking pigment).  This adorable little girl with blue eyes and blonde hair spent the first 18 months of her life in an orphanage, only because she was so different from other Chinese babies.   During her time in the orphanage, she did not receive the same nurturing and care most babies receive.  This led to many developmental and physical delays.

We have searched high and low to find services that can help Liz with her disabilities.  We have gotten her the medical care that was needed to help her thrive.  At the University of Iowa it was confirmed that Liz is legally blind, has no depth perception and has sensory processing disorder.  Some situations are very stressful to her such as loud noises, strange environments, and new situations.

In order to increase Liz’s comfort and independence we continue to seek solutions.   One of the solutions we are working on is a service dog from DeafinitelyDogsa non profit that trains and places service dogs that help people with disabilities, such as Liz! 

Liz's service dog will help her with mobility/navigation (depth perception), reducing anxiety, retrieving items, and companionship.  Even though Deafinitely Dogs! is a non profit, the cost is $25,000 to train a dog and they are asking us to raise $10,000. We greatly appreciate any help you can provide for the service dog for our little girl.
