Rob Sader, the soon to be Father of Charity, sent me this picture the other day.
It is a picutre of a down syndrom girl named Ksenia. Ksenia was transferred to a mental institution after she turned 4. Unlike Charity, she was not adopted. Kesnia was abandoned by her family; mother, father, aunts, uncles, and grandparents. She was sent to an orphanage or “baby house” for the first four years of her life and then after she turned 4 she was transferred to a mental institution. This picture shows the effect on a child after being sent an adult mental institution. It’s a tragic outcome.
Charity is in a “baby house” today waiting for the Saders to complete the adoption process. What is scary is Charity turns 4 in September and will be transferred to an adult mental institution shortly there after.
This fund raiser is to keep this from happening. It’s more than just to help a little girl with down syndrome to be adopted, it’s to save a life.
I messed up last week and said we have one week to go. It wasn’t. This is the last week. We are $450 dollars from our QUOTA. The Saders need to raise $18,000.
If we are successful When we are successful here, we will cover just under 10% of that. That’s a big deal.
Let’s get Charity home before she turns 4. Nobody deserves to go through what Ksenia is. It’s just not right.
