This is why my heart breaks for these children. This is why I am passionate about our own adoption. We are saving lives! It just shouldn't be this way.... PLEASE PRAY!!! God hears and answers our prayers!
Little Victoria just arrived in the US last Friday and went straight to the hospital for severe malnutrition and dehydration. She's so dehydrated that even after IV fluids, she didn't have a wet diaper for over 24 hrs! She needs our prayers for healing. Her family's blog is HERE to read more about their story or follow updates on Victoria's progress.
Please pray for her and for her family. She will likely be in the hospital for an extended time. We would like to help her mom and family. If you know anyone in the Atlanta area that might be able to help with meals, childcare, or even taking a shift to help sit with Victoria so mom can spend some time with her other kids, please share this.
Shelley B. in Texas has just been through something so very similar with her own daughter, Carrington, just three short months ago. Carrington is doing wonderfully now! Shelley is coordinating assistance for the Ferrone Family. You can reach Shelley at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up to help in any way you can. There is a ChipIn at Carrington's blog if you want to donate assistance.
