Teamwork Tuesday: Priscilla

Teamwork Tuesday is a communal effort by many bloggers to bring attention to a specific child every Tuesday. All Teamwork Tuesday bloggers advocate for the same child on Tuesdays in hopes that increased exposure for that child will help in finding a family. 

As you all know, this is a blog about boys. However, I am part of Teamwork Tuesday, and some of the Teamwork Tuesday kids are (gasp) girls! Of course, there are countless waiting girls as well. And I like girls! I have two of my own! We'll get back to our regularly scheduled boys tomorrow, but today I would like you to meet Priscilla. Priscilla just turned two in February (two of my kid have February birthdays!). Look at that smile! And those gorgeous eyes! She looks like she has some spunk!

Priscilla displays many facial features of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, or FAS. She also has Myelodisplastic syndrome, also known as pre-leukemia. This poor sweetie is so young and battling so much! Priscilla really needs a home so that her parents can give her all the love, care, and treatment she needs to live a healthy, happy life. Priscilla needs to be read to, sung to, and snuggled by loving siblings!

Priscilla's caregivers describe her as communicative and reactive. They also say she is cheerful, active, and friendly and likes to play with a variety of toys.

Priscilla has approximately $100 in her adoption grant. You can help Priscilla by donating to increase her grant fund, sharing her picture and information, and considering whether she has a place in your family. There are additional photos of Priscilla that are available to interested families.
