Spotlight On... Emil!!

Emil is a beautiful, 13 year old boy with Down Syndrome and CP.  What does that mean?  That means that in 2 years, he is condemned to a life inside of a mental institution.  Forever.  It means no stimulation.  None of the therapies he so desperately needs.  Nothing.  Ever.  It means that in 2 years... the world will forget him.

I won't forget him.

From Emil's Reece's Rainbow Facebook Page:

Born December 1999
Diagnosis: cerebral palsy and down syndrome
From someone who met him in 2012:
Emil was the gentlest child ever! Unable to talk but the pleading in his eyes killed me! He grabbed my finger and wouldn’t let go…what a grip! He also got really hit a few times by others wanting my attention, he didn’t retaliate but fell in a heap and moved away, only to return when the coast was clear. I would love to see this child in a nurturing environment!

This post breaks my heart. He CRAVES attention. He's DYING for love.  He's absolutely wasting away, with no affection.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!  Can you help Emil??  I'm begging you, my heart is breaking for him.  PLEASE help us find his Forever Family... before it's too late!!

Emil has a decent grant... $3,883!!!  It's not small change, for sure!!  But it's not the $25,000 his Forever Family needs to be able to adopt him.  I'm asking you humbly, please pray HARD today about donating to Emil's Reece's Rainbow grant.

Please share Emil.  You might be his Mama.  You might not be.  But you might know her.  You might have her on your friends list right now, and she's looking for him.  She might follow you on Twitter.  PLEASE... share Emil today.

And, above all else, pray for him.  Pray hard.  He needs our prayers, SO much.

Now you know about Emil.  Will you ignore this?  Will you ignore him?  His silent pleads for help?  For love?  For affection?  For attention?  Will you ignore him?

Now you know.  What will you do?
