Meet Emmitt

Today I want to share a special young man with you. He is 13 years old, but look where he is in the picture -- in a crib! I'm not sure how old the picture is, but he is much too old for a crib! This young man needs a family. Even with a wheelchair, he could have much independence. He could be educated and be a productive citizen. He could be a loving son, brother, grandson... pray that his family finds him soon! He doesn't deserve to spend his life institutionalized! Often people want to adopt younger children, but there must be someone out there who loves young people and will give this lovely young man a chance! Would you join me in praying for Emmit -- and will you share his story with others?

Here is his picture and RR profile!

Emmitt

Boy, Born January 26, 1998

Emmitt is a sweet boy. He is living in one of the mental institutions, and has been for many years, yet he remains sweet, intelligent, and kind. Ttwo of our adopting families met him while they were there, and are pleading for a family to save him. From his medical records: myelomeningocele (spina bifida) From one of our adoptive families: ” Emmitt has a severe deformity of his legs. He cannot walk at all. He is very friendly, funny, and talkative. He desperately seeks out attention. He was talking to my husband, and holding Zack’s hand, which he then put on top of his head for Zack to rub his hair. He is extremely intelligent, and just precious! I brought him paper and crayons, and he drew me a flower :)

We are seeking more official medical information about his condition, but hope someone out there will see this sweet young man and know his kind and loving spirit.
