6 Years Old
Lise was 6 years old when Dale chose to adopt. She’d been in the system since she was born. Though she got close with the orphans, it hurt when they were picked over her, and she felt she’d never have a permanent home to live in.
As Lise spent more time at the orphanage, she saw that her many friends got adopted. She was passed over for them, which made her feel unwanted and rejected as she got older. It was a sad situation for this little girl.
