That’s right. i have no fancy words or story for you today. Just a simple plea.
Please see little Wendy. i mean truly SEE! See her fighting spirit, see her beautiful soul, see how much she needs a family to help her through life.
Wendy was born too early. How long exactly has she been at the orphanage? i’m not sure but i would not be surprised if it has been her entire life; 7 long years! She faces being sent to an adult mental institution if she doesn’t find a family asap.
Can you imagine hearing those strange noises of people banging their heads, rocking themselves so hard they fall off the chair, people screaming for sheer boredom, people self-comforting by slapping themselves? Hearing all that while unable to see at all? Having to deal with CP without any help? Given the bare minimum to survive because that is all that is available?
That’s what Wendy faces if she is not adopted soon.
Her carers at her orphanage love her and i know they would love for her to have a family; a family who would love her just as she is, who would show her such care so that she no longer has to fight to live, a family who would be able to provide her educational opportunities she would never have in her home country, a family who work with her on therapy treatments, a family who would be proud of her, just because she is her.
Are you that family? If yes, please contact Reece’s Rainbow for details on how to adopt her.
Even if you feel you can not be her family, you can still help:
- You can share her story on social media so that her forever family might see her and come for her.
- You can pray for her daily needs, pray that she is able to stay at the orphanage till her forever family comes for her, pray that she stays strong, pray that her forever family steps forward real soon.
- You can also give towards her adoption grant to ease the very expensive journey her forever family would have to take to bring her home. You can click on her name or picture to go to her profile page to donate.
