A Christmas Miracle for Evelyn

Time to Focus!

Though I've blogged about many children...

There are two that have had a special place in my heart for a long time...





These beautiful children have been waiting for a family for so long!

Emmitt is 14 and has spina bifida...

And  Victoria  is 9 and has arthrogryposis (stiff joints in her legs)...

Their childhood is passing by with no Mom or Dad...

No chance to go to school...

They spend most of their time in bed because they can't walk...

It's just not fair!

If they had a family they could go to school...

They could get therapy...

Victoria might even be able to get her legs straightened so she could learn to walk...

And  Emmitt could learn to get around well in a wheelchair...

But now they wait in mental instutions...

It's sad that their physical limitations should land them there!

But they live in a place where there is no accommodation for disabilities in society...

The disabled are shut away and forgotten...

If they are not adopted they will have to be in such places for life...

A lifetime in bed...

It does NOT have to be this way!

They CAN be adopted...

They CAN have a life and love and some independence some day...

If families can be found for them!

*****

Emmitt's case is especially urgent...


Because he now has less than 18 months to find a family...

(When he turns 16 he will no longer be eligible for adoption.)

I've decided to change my blog header to focus especially on him!

While I'll continue to blog for other children too...

I plan to include  Emmitt's picture at the end of each post till he finds a family...

(Or ages out - Oh please don't let that happen!)

It's time to focus on  Emmitt!


He's worth it!

And I'll sneak  Victoria  in from time to time...

(Update - I've decided to include her at the bottom of each post too - 'cause she's my special girl!)


She's worth it too!

I'd so love to see both of these precious children home safely with their own forever families!

I'd be so grateful if you would pray for them and share their need with others!

To read more about Emmitt or Victoria or to donate to their adoption grant funds click on their names!

I've also put a donation box for  Emmitt  and  Victoria  on my sidebar (top right hand side) to make donations easy - and so I can keep an eye on how there grant's are doing!


You can learn more about adoption by clicking HERE!

Note: They are not brother and sister and do not have to be adopted together though it would be great if they could be!  I'm not sure how close their institutions are to each other so adoption together may or may not be possible.

***** Update*****

I couldn't do it!  I couldn't leave my girl out...

You'll notice that Victoria is now included in the header too!
