I don’t know how many of my blog visitors pay attention to my blog sidebar where I feature a precious child who is looking for their forever family. I hope you do!
For several months, sweet Arnold‘s face has been featured there.
Arnold had been on my heart for a long time. Did you know that in some Eastern European countries, many orphans with special needs are transferred to mental institutions at the tender age of 4 or 5 if they haven’t been adopted? It is hard for me to comprehend. Arnold was scheduled for transfer this summer, so I was incredibly excited to see that a family had stepped forward last month to adopt him. My heart still thrills with joy whenever I think of it.
From the Reece’s Rainbow site:
This little love is said to have a very mild delay — they don’t even consider her as “special needs” at her orphanage, but yet she’ll never find a family in her country due to her Down syndrome diagnosis.
She has some physical delays, but her neuro-psychological development is said to be at age level.
Natalie is an orphanage favorite, and they are hoping to find her a family! They say she is the sweetest girl, kind and friendly.
Thank you for reading about Arnold and Natalie.
Only 2 years old. LOTS more photos available. Great region to adopt from, single moms welcome too!
