Meet Frank. He’s 13 years old, and is curious, busy, fun happy and bright. He has a mental delay, but that doesn’t stop him from being friendly, engaging and kind. He’s also an orphan in Eastern Europe. This means he is in an institution. If he is not adopted by age 16, he will be thrown out on the street with nothing but the clothes on his back and his “disabled orphan” status. Let me tell you more about Frank.
He’s little, about the size of a 7 year old. And he’s smart. He is in a group with teenage boys ages 16-24. He does puzzles and he does his chores diligently. He is very kind to the younger children. Frank is friendly and engaging. He likes being with the boys, but is happy being alone too. He plays appropriately with toys and is “all boy”. He could very easily function in a family. Frank is curious, smart, fun and sweet. He likes to play in the dirt and jump on the trampoline. Frank is independent, a good eater, is happy and content. Frank is physically healthy. He walks, runs, feeds himself, speaks, does puzzles and interacts with others well. He's a sweet boy who seems rather unaffected by his surroundings. He has no future where he's at, and without help, he's never getting out. Institutions are a one way ticket to nowhere. And this little boy deserves a future. This little boy will be a blessing to any family.
The Baker family has committed to adopt Frank and another boy, Emmitt. But international adoption is pretty expensive. The adoption would cost about $30,000. Reece’s Rainbow is an organization that helps with this cost. They set up grants for children in 25 countries around the world, and any money that is donated to these funds is given to the families to help with adoption fees. With Reece's Rainbow's help, the Baker family only needs about $10,000 to bring home both boys!

This little boy definetly needs A LOT of prayer. And a family to save him QUICK! He is lucky to still be in the baby house, but THIS SPRING, SPRING 2011 HE WILL BE TRANSFERRED. If you're a new comer and don't know why its a big deal, let me explain it to you. Sorry for kids reading this, it may be a little scary. When Anthony is transferred, he will spend the rest of his life drugged and tied to his bed. He will be given just enough food to not die. Most transferred kids can never get out of their bed. Most transferred kids DIE within their first year. Now do you understand WHY we fight SO HARD for families for these kids? THIS IS THEIR FATE If they are not adopted. NO child deserves this. Save them. "God didn't put too many children in the world, some families just haven't stepped up to save theirs yet." Step up to save yours today! Take a look at this family. They have taken God's call to heart. No, I'm not saying you need to go adopt 20+ kids. Saving one would be enough. "Adopting one child won't change the world, but for that one child, the world WILL change". Think about it. Here is Anthony's page. Help him. Save him.
Anthony is actually on a different page too. He is also on the Have Grant, Will Travel page. Email Andrea Roberts (email@example.com)for more information about that.
He has $6466.19 toward his adoption. That's about 1/4 the cost he needs. That is a very large dent for an adopting family. Please, I BEG you, SAVE HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!! Email Andrea for more information.
