Frank's Freedom

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!

I'm sorry about the low quality of this picture. There is another coming of Sergey, but as of now, this is the only one we have received. An interesting thing about this picture though, I only just noticed it myself...
If you look at the top right hand corner of Sergey's picture, you should see a very blurred blue and yellow object. Well, we found out that that is Sullivan/ Samuel in the picture, see?

Well, now to tell you a little more about Sergey. As of now, he is 4 and a half years old. He struggles with many disabilities, which can be found HERE He is at significant risk of being transferred, and like Lorena and Anthony, lucky he hasn't been transferred to a horrible mental institution like THIS This is the future for him if he is not adopted. Most kids are sent on their 4Th birthday. Luckily the baby house has kept him. But his clock is ticking away. He only has $20 for his adoption. He still needs almost $20,000 more to be adopted. Sure, an adopting family could raise some of that money, but that's a lot, especially in this economy. So poor Sergey will waste away in a mental institution. He needs your help! Even if you can't donate, spread the word about him and Cheri, Lorena, Anthony, Katya, Caleb/Sebastian, and Sullivan/Samuel. Please.
