So, as I was going through some blogs and RR, I came across this little girl. Her name is Vika(Vicky)
She is soooo adorable. She just turned 6 in May, which doesn't give her much time at all untill she is transferred to an institution. She does NOT need to be there. She had a family committed to her and she already has almost $20,000 in her adoption fund...that is a HUGE amount! Her family is no longer able to adopt her, and she needs a home ASAP!
The thing that struck me about her is the words that her caregivers at the orphanage wrote about her:
In May 2005, in Tver maternity mom did not know that her daughter will be a bright and good, she thought that this child with Down syndrome becomes a burden and an object of ridicule, and therefore given it up …
Vike almost 3 years, her illness with proper care, attention and care can be greatly adjusted. And now it is not very different from their peers. Vikusya already said a few words, knows the names of animals and birds can show them the picture. Of course, it is not very assiduously in the classroom, her mood quickly changed. But she already knows itself to assemble and disassemble pyramids, cups-liners, understands the differences in the sizes of objects can draw straight lines and closed lines. Likes to play with the doll, feeding her, shakes and washes. Girl with easily imitate adults, able to dress with a little help, eating – not a bit careful, but herself, asking for a pot, washes her hands … She loves affection. Vika – a normal child."
A NORMAL child. That is amazing for an orphanage to say. It is so true. These children ARE normal and have love that is beyond our comprehension. A perfect love. A love that anyone and everyone should get to experience day after day. Maybe you have thought about adopting, but were worried about the money, or you never thought of adopting, but have a tug at your heart when you look at her sweet picture. Maybe you know someone who would LOVE to give her a forever home. Maybe you are her mom or dad.
Single mothers are also able to adopt in this particular region:)
Think about it.
