Deirdre is beautiful. They say that a big hairbow often means the child is a favorite with her caregivers. She is almost 4 and is said to be sociable. Having a caregiver, even one who loves you, isn't the same as having a family. Deirdre needs a mommy, daddy, and siblings who will love her forever. Who will not leave her because they move away or find a better job. Who don't go off duty at night. Who don't have so many other little charges she gets lost in the crowd. Can you be the one to tuck her in at night, give her a bubble bath with her sister, teach her to ride a bike and pump on a swing? Can you show her what mommy means? She doesn't have to be an additional child --she could just be a child.
