You can't save them all!

I hear this a lot. I know I can't save all the orphans, but if we all helped, then they would all be saved.

This is Kirill and the mom who wants to adopt him. This family has been trying to bring him home for months. They finally got their court date. After 5 hours in the court room the judge DENIED their adoption. The facilitators, the director of the orphanage, the parents and everyone else in the court room couldn't believe what they were hearing.........NO. NO. The court said they were a "good family" and were approved to adopt a healthy child. But not this child. Not a "defective" child.
Never before has a child with down syndrome been adopted from this region.

This little one is Carrington.
Carrington is fighting for her life at the hospital. The family just got back to the US on March 17th and went straight to the hospital from the airport. You see, under those fluffy pajamas, was this pitiful little body. When the parents changed her into her new clothes to leave the orphanage, they discovered just how tiny she really was. Carrington is 3 1/2 years old and weighs only 11 pounds. She was clinging to life by a thread. They prayed she would just make it to the US, until they could get her help.

Her teeth are totally rotted.

She gouged at her face for stimulation.

These are the pictures that are so hard to look at. These kids are wasting away, laying in cribs or beds, day after day, night after night, unwanted and unloved.


These kids are saved ONE AT A TIME.

EVERYBODY can pray for these families and these kids.
Don't miss out on a chance to be a part of something amazing.

Make a difference...........BE that difference.
