Hundreds offer to adopt British girl with cerebral palsy

Staff are now urgently trawling through those offering her a home focusing on those who are already approved for adoption in the hope a home can be found for her soon.

Hundreds of people have come forward offering to adopt a three-year-old British girl, Grace, who hasn't been able to find a home because she has cerebral palsy.
Grace’s plight became front page news in England last week, after her ageing foster parents urged a family to step up and adopt her so she could have a "forever family" for Christmas.
The Mirror reports that the adoption agency handling her case has been swamped since Grace's story went viral, with many families willing to take her in.
"Staff are now urgently trawling through those offering her a home focusing on those who are already approved for adoption in the hope a home can be found for her soon," the report says.
Grace has cerebral palsy and chronic lung disease. Her own mother is unable to look after her because of a brain injury caused by an accident.
She has been with her foster parents, known as Jill and Paul, since she was a baby, but they can’t keep her forever, and they were surprised that nobody stepped up to adopt her, saying Grace would be a "gift to any family."
"She's a beautiful little girl," said Jill.
