Teamwork Tuesday--Brent!!


Please let me introduce you to Brent.

Oh my word, doesn't he look like FUN???  Look at that GRIN!!  Brent is 7 years old, and lives in an institution in Eastern Europe.  The institution is run by a man who genuinely cares for the children, and he tries his best, despite a culture working against him.  However, it receives no government funding, and there are a lot--too many--special needs children and adults there.  

Brent's medical records say: "Severe mental retardation. Down syndrome. Displastic cardiopathy (О.О.О.) Converging strabismus. Post-tuberculosis neuro-sclerosis."

Despite all of those big, scary words, Brent is "an orphanage favorite, and is blessed to be part of an orphan care program that provides him with a nanny and one-on-one stimulation.   He is considered lower functioning, but will truly blossom like a flower in a loving family environment."

Brent has a large fund, ($10,209!!) that will be a huge blessing to any family who wishes to adopt him, and is in a fairly easy place to adopt from.  Please contact Reece's Rainbow if you're interested in bring Brent into your family.  

Now you know.  What will you do? 
This is Millie.

Millie is 8 years old.  She has Down Syndrome, and she's in an orphanage.  Millie is our Teamwork Tuesday child this week. 

Millie's picture breaks my heart.  She looks like she's been crying.  Oh, sweet Millie!! 

Millie is described as being able to walk and run. She is not yet talking. She enjoys listening to music and playing with toys that make sound. She enjoys going outside.

She has Down Syndrome, strabismus, and excema around her nose.  Nothing overly serious.  No heart problems that we know of.  No blood born disease.  Just... Down Syndrome, strabismus, and excema. 

But, she's a sweet girl.  Let's help Millie get home, shall we?

Pray over Millie!  Let's cover her life--her caregivers, her Forever Family, everyone that comes in contact with her--in prayer.  Prayerfully consider making a donation to Millie's grant, and, if you're considering adoption, won't you consider Millie??

And let's get her out and show her face.  Let's get Millie seen!  Facebook, Twitter 

Now we know.  Now, we act!
