Just a reminder that my June Fundraiser for Jack wraps up on June 30th! If you haven't yet donated, please consider doing so now. We have reached $487, which is 97% of the way to our goal of $500! Can you be the one who helps us exceed our goal?
Today is a Blog Blitz for the children of Orphanage 9. Last week there were 8 kids from Orphanage 9 listed on Reece's Rainbow. As I mentioned on Wednesday, Lucas' family found him. Seven children remain. Could one of them be your child?
This sweet little boy is Sergey. Sergey will turn 5 in October and, unfortunately, this little guy is not doing well. He suffers from many medical issues, including hydrocephalus, spastic tetraparesis, and a convulsive disorder. If Sergey is not adopted, he will be transferred to a mental institution where he will spend the rest of his (likely very short) life bedridden.
But Sergey is not just a collection of disorders and diagnoses! He is a little boy who has managed to cling to life for nearly five years. He is a little boy who can experience joy and sadness, comfort and pain, love and neglect. He is a little boy who deserves to feel the loving touch of his parents and to receive the proper medical care to let him live a life of happiness and contentment. He deserves the treatment and stimulation that will allow him to reach his full potential. Sergey is more than just a disabled child; he is an individual, a distinct personality, and a waiting son.
Sergey currently has $5028.00 in his adoption grant. You can help Sergey by donating to increase his grant fund, by sharing his information with your friends and acquaintances, and by considering whether Sergey has a place in your own family. Little Sergey deserves a better life than a mental institution!
There are six other children at Orphanage 9 who are listed on Reece's Rainbow. Please click on their names to read more about them.
