Parents Adopt Abandoned Girl, Learn The Truth About Her Much Later

Bernie and Diane Lierow decided the time was right to make their dream of adopting a girl a reality. The couple already had five grown boys of their own, and were struck by the photos of a girl named Danielle that they had seen at an adoption event. According to Little Things, caseworkers tried to point the couple in another direction, but the couple pressed ahead anyway.

Danielle had been found in a Florida home at the age of seven. She is what’s known as a feral child, and was found in some horrific conditions. The home was in absolutely filthy condition, and she had never even been outside of the house. Danielle was discovered by a neighbor as she peered out of a broken window. She essentially had the functionality of a child in the six-month-old range, and caseworkers would try to discourage the Lierow’s by informing them that there was ‘something wrong’ with her.

Undeterred, Bernie and Diane decided to move forward with adoption proceedings. She had been transferred to a group home after her mother lost custodial rights, and the couple would face some challenges integrating Danielle into her new environment. Fast forward to today, and Danielle has made substantial progress, and is adjusting well to life as the beloved daughter of the Lierow’s.
