But, as you all know, she didn't! She is beloved, free and an absolute JOY to everyone she meets!
Today, I'd like to introduce you to another girl who's in a situation a lot like our Kassi was last year.
This is Dawn.
Dawn is 15 years old and she currently lives in an orphanage in Eastern Europe.
In her country, children have until their 16th birthday to have their families find them - Dawn has only a couple of weeks left! However, a family will only need to have submitted a certain form before her birthday, rather than needing to have her home. I am not personally familiar with the process for this country, but please email me at email@example.com if you believe that you might be Dawn's family! I can easily connect you with so many people who would give you all of the information that you would need to make her a part of your family.
Dawn is a beautiful girl whose biggest challenge is the fact that she has no family. She also happens to have been born with Down syndrome and a few other special needs - congenital cardiac malformation – atrium septum defect, left-right shunt – surgically corrected, and strabismus. These needs might sound scary, but with medical care that is available in the US, her future has an entirely different look!
|Look at her SMILE!!!|
Dawn is a precious child who needs and deserves a family, and I believe that she will be such a blessing to her family! However, a family does need to be prepared for the fact that she is going to have different challenges caused by her life up to her adoption. Sweet Dawn needs a family who is prepared and understands the fact that being institutionalized for 15 years has had consequences for her, and a family that can provide the care, attention and most of all LOVE that she needs to thrive.
And most of all, please pray that her family will find her!
