Today I would like to introduce you to a beautiful little boy named Yegor.
Yegor is not listed on Reece's Rainbow, but he is available for adoption. He turns 11 this year.
Aren't his brown eyes just about to melt your heart? I have to admit that I am a sucker for the brown-eyed ones.
Unfortunately, life has not been very kind to Yegor. He resides in an institution where he spends most of his time bedridden. He is physically and mentally handicapped.
But oh ... that smile ...
Yegor is a heartbreaker if ever there was one!
Like many children who are confined to an institution, Yegor's difficulties are probably a combination of a congenital condition and neglect in the institution. Children who are confined to cribs do not progress. They are not talked to; they are not held; they are not given the physical, mental, and emotional stimulation they need to develop to their fullest potential.
But they can make great strides when they are adopted into a family and given the love, therapy, nutrition, education, and attention they need and deserve! Who knows what Yegor's potential is if he gets these things?
I do know that, regardless of the bleakness of his circumstances, this is a child who responds to and benefits from love and attention. Just the simple act of touching his face elicits such a joyous response!
You can make a difference in Yegor's life! You can pray for him. You can help to sponsor the salary of a caregiver at the institution. You can share his photos and information. You can consider whether he has a place in your family!
Please don't forget that for a $10 donation to Jason's grant fund, you have the chance to receive a customized map necklace AND benefit and adopting family!
Thanks for stopping by, and thanks for your support of orphaned boys worldwide!
