A family of adopted children takes in a blind kitty that was dumped in the trash
Although most Americans enjoy the joy and excitement of December, abandoned animals don’t have a happy holiday season. Ilene, a kitten dumped in California with a bag of trash, can witness to this. Ilene, a later-named kitten, was abandoned in a trash heap and cruelly thrown there.
Unfortunately, they were powerless to change Ilene’s eyes. She was diagnosed with microphthalmia, a rare eye disorder in which one or both eyes are abnormally small. This might have been inherited, the result of trauma or an infection, or both. They were aware of her condition, which left her totally blind.
Ilene’s chance to start over with a new family she shared a similar past with finally came. She was adopted by a loving family who had several adopted children, just like her!
Even better, her adopted family had a tale that was as unique and endearing as her own. Ilene would not know, but this family was quite unique. Alanna, a single mother, had fostered Cassandra, Elijah, and Samantha for more than three years and wanted above all else to adopt them into her family.
They were the six neglected younger siblings’ three youngest children. They were uneducated and had never visited a doctor or a school. Given their past, their new mother thinks that fostering kittens is a really reassuring experience for the kids. Although they ultimately adopted three cats, the family still had room in their hearts and house for one more.
They were all eager to help the kitten and provide her with the permanent home she needed after seeing Ilene’s story on the television. The kids could relate to the kitten since they had gone through similar things. Alanna and her three children spent the entire night waiting outside OHS to ensure that they would be the first to submit an adoption application for Ilene. Ilene was adopted about a month after Alanna adopted the children, thus their hard work paid off!
They wanted to provide the devoted family that Ilene needed, and they undoubtedly succeeded in doing so. Ilene won’t again have to be concerned about being left behind or living on the streets again. She could focus on spending Christmas with her loving family.

As their friendship became stronger, Alanna and her kids showed Ilene that she could trust them by being nice and patient. Ilene adapted well and enjoys cuddling with all of her new relatives. She was shown what it really means to love and be loved unconditionally for the first time.
