21 Sep Estephania enters Sponsorship Program
Estephania entered Dorie’s Promise by court order. A caregiver was going to care for her during the processing of her international adoption. However, when those adoptions closed, the court ordered her transferred to an orphanage. During this time, she was declared adoptable, and in December of 2010 went to live with a Guatemalan family. After five months, though, Estephania's family decided they didn’t have enough time to care for her and sent her back. So she re-entered Dorie’s Promise in May 2011.
You might think being rejected by two different families would slow a little child down. But you would be wrong. Estephania has an amazing spirit! She loves to lead other children. She is a smart, independent girl with a caring heart, making her willing to share things with other children.
Her favorite food is ice cream! If Estephania had the option she would play at the park every day — and her favorite day here is “Splash Day.”
