Spotlight On... Justine!!

Please meet our latest Young Lady... Miss Justine!!

Justine is 11 years old, but about to turn 12.  Isn't she lovely??  She needs her hair to be allowed to grow out (by the way, if you're wondering, they shave everyone's heads like that to keep the head lice count under control.  Lovely, huh?), but look at those AMAZING eyes!!  This is one absolutely beautiful young lady!!  From Justine's Reece's Rainbow page:

Girl, Born June 11, 2001
From her medical records: congenital microcephaly, autism
Justine is a pretty girl with dark hair and eyes. She is fully mobile and active. Her face bears features of FAS, but this is not documented and is only a cautionary disclosure.
As with all children living in these difficult conditions, this child’s cognitive development has regressed significantly since he/she was younger. It is of crucial importance that any family considering the adoption of an older child from the mental institution setting be well prepared for what to expect with regards to how the neglect and lack of adequate medical care and nourishment has affected this child. These children all have TREMENDOUS potential for improvement, and deserve to have a life outside these four walls.
Justine has so very much potential.  There is no reason why she couldn't absolutely blossom and shine in a family!!

Justine, like so many of our Teamwork Tuesday children, has been overlooked.  She only has a $100 grant.  That's completely unacceptable.  She's getting scary close to the "In Danger of Aging Out" group, and I don't want to see her get there.  Can we help her? 

Please pray over Justine right now.  Pray that her family finds her, and HELP that family by sharing this post, or her Reece's Rainbow page.  Pray pray pray about donating to her grant.  It needs to grow SIGNIFICANTLY for her to come home, unobstructed by money.  

You've met her.  You've seen her face.  You've looked into those beautiful eyes... what will you do?
