Forever Friday: Konner

Hello, friends! Although yesterday's storm did cause the children to miss Garden Club, it turned out not to be as severe as was expected. We did get some much-needed rain, and the kids enjoyed playing some board games while we waited out the storm.

Unfortunately, a storm is gathering in the life of Konner, today's Forever Friday child.

Konner is a cognitively typical three year old who was born with spina bifida, which has been surgically corrected. Konner currently lives in a baby house, but the gathering storm on Konner's horizon is transfer to an adult mental institution. If Konner is not adopted by the time he turns four, he will be transferred. You know that that means. "Life" in a crib. Existence in a crib. No more toys, no more playing, no more going outside; Konner will live in a crib for the rest of his life, hidden away from society for the crime of being born with a medical condition.

Here is Konner's baby picture. What an adorable little sweetie! The clock is ticking for Konner. His birthday is in June. He has 11 months for his family to find him. Every day that goes by brings Konner one day closer to imprisonment.

There is good news, however! Konner currently has $1081 in his adoption grant fund! And he has a Guardian Angel who is working hard on his behalf to bring attention to Konner so that his forever family finds him! You can visit his GA's blog to read more about Konner and her efforts on his behalf. 

And, as always, you can help Konner! You can share his photo and information, you can donate to increase his grant fund, and you can consider whether Konner has a place in your own family.
