described as being “sensible” and a clever girl who always likes to ask “why?”

“Her caregivers say that she always reads in her spare time. She enjoys talking with adults and her conversations are said to be “beyond her age.” She enjoys dressing neatly and keeps things clean and she always makes her bed. Her caregivers say she has “princess dreams” and loves to wear pretty clothes. She knows how to care for herself and can do her hair nicely and design hairstyles. Her favorite musical instruments are the zither and the piano.”

“She enjoys singing, dancing, and crafts, and we also have video of her playing basketball, swinging, and a photograph of her on the monkey bars!”


“Livia has endured four surgeries and many medical procedures in her short life. She was diagnosed with spina bifida upon entry to the orphanage as well as anemia.

As of September 2017, she is diagnosed with chronic renal failure.

“Even though she has many doctor visits and has to miss some school each week, her school records remain excellent. She gets along well with other children, her teachers, and elders and she has many good friends at school. She likes to participate in all the extra-curricular activities at school, and especially loves handicrafts- the teachers always praise her handiwork.

Her favorite subjects are art, music, and English, and she demonstrates excellent leadership at school activities. Compared to other kids her age, Livia is said to be very mature and have her own ideas. She likes to complete projects from start to finish, and has very good work ethic.

Livia is currently with Madison Adoption Associates

There is a $2,000 agency grant for Tessa’s adoption with MAA. There is an extra $1,000 grant for any family who moves forward for a waiting child in the month of December 2017!

WACAP is offering a $4,000 Promise Child Grant for qualified families if you adopt through them.

If you would like to know more about how to adopt this sweet girl, ask about any child on TwentyLess, or ask about adoption in general, please feel free to send me an e-mail – Jessica

TwentyLess is not an agency, it is an advocacy site run by an adoptive mom (me) who would love to see every child with a family of their very own.
