Sara urgently needs a family to bring her home before she ages out of the adoption process on her 14th birthday in June.
Sara has osteogenesis imperfecta (brittle bone disease). She is unable to walk unsupported and uses a wheelchair to get around. Sara has been living with a foster family since 2007. She has a close relationship with her foster parents.
Currently Sara can’t attend school in her area because of her special needs, but she is receiving therapy and education at a special center. Her language development and literacy level are on target, and her math scores are below average. She is thought to have a high IQ and a strong ability to learn.
Sara is an enthusiastic artist, she especially likes music and painting. Visit her profile on Holt's photolisting to hear her sing! She has an open, determined and kindhearted personality. She especially likes playing with other children and gets along well with others.
Sara needs a family who is educated about older child adoption, motivated to complete their adoption paperwork quickly, and who is prepared to provide for her medical needs. A $3,000 Special Blessings Grant is available toward Sara’s adoption fees through Holt.

Holt’s Child-Centered Approach
We believe that every child needs and deserves a permanent, loving family. What is best for every orphaned and abandoned child is, however, as unique as every child. When considering a child’s future, Holt always keeps the child’s best interest at the forefront of every decision. Holt International pioneered the modern era of international adoption, but Holt is much more than an adoption agency. We also develop and maintain programs overseas to give orphaned and abandoned children safe and nurturing environments in which to grow and thrive while we find their loving family.
- We were the first international adoption agency and our founders helped write many of the laws that pioneered international adoption.
- In most of the countries where we work, we are the largest adoption and placing agency.
- We focus on homefinding efforts for children with minor to more moderate special needs.
- Holt International is committed to supporting families and adoptees for their entire life. Adoption is a lifelong journey, so our role doesn't end when a child arrives home. We offer many services post-adoption, like counseling, adoptee camps or birth parent searches.
