A Time To Weep
During my red thread summer, every blog I read was advocating for Anya, knowing she only needed love and a family to get her out of the stroller. She was born November 25, 2005 with Down syndrome, a heart defect, and most likely was given up at birth, once her parents learned of her diagnosis. Walking was too strenuous, so she was either in a crib or a stroller. A few friends who adopted from her orphanage fell in love with her there. Ready for Ross and Stas's sister's blog have wonderful pictures of Anya, along with a touching memorial post. Lizzie created a montage of her visits to Anya's orphanage with beautiful pictures of the children there. The video tugs at your heartstrings for the children, alone without a family
Today is a reminder that these children are living on borrowed time. Today is a time to weep. Not everyone is in a position to adopt. But everyone can do something to advocate for these precious gems, whether through prayer, donations, or advocating for their forever families.
