Forever Family: Meet Ashlynn

News

Miracle On Wellington

There is a need for adoptive parents who can meet the unique, special needs of children struggling with medical issues…

In this week’s Forever Family, we want you to meet 3-year-old Ashlynn. She’s a beautiful little girl who loves to be snuggled.

Despite her medical needs, Ashlynn is very determined. She breathes with the use of a tracheostomy and ventilator and receives nutrition through a G-tube.

The ideal family for Ashlynn will be trained to care for children with medical needs, as well as provide constant supervision and love.

If you think you could be Ashlynn’s forever family, or for another Texas child, you can call (325) 315-8247 or log onto adoptchildren.org for more information.
