a brief detour from Ember - for a public service announcement :)
This is my precious Sienna. Sienna has down syndrome.
She just celebrated her 2nd birthday last week. She is amazing and I am immensely proud of her and so grateful to be her mother.
I can not imagine my world without her. She is funny, smart, loving, naughty, deserving of love. She has so much to offer me, our family, our friends, our society in general.
See this boy?
This precious soul also has down syndrome. He is wasting away in an adult mental institution because his country (same as where Ember was born) does not see the value of individuals with down syndrome. This picture of him was taken very recently.
See this precious girl?
She also has down syndrome. She is also an orphan who can be adopted. This picture was taken while she was still at her baby house. Isn't she cute?
See this precious soul?
That is the same little girl as above. This picture was taken only a few weeks after poor Teri Lynn was transferred to an adult mental institution. See the worry in her eyes? How terrified she must be. It is heartbreaking. I look at Sienna and try and picture her being treated that way. This little girl needs a family to step up and rescue her. Adopt her. Take her home and hold her tight. Take a minute to pray that a family finds her and saves her. She already has a large grant to help financially cover the costs of her adoption.
