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!

Go change the world

"adopting one child wont change the world, but for that child the world will change."
But if only 1% of the people who call themselves "Christians" would each adopt ONE orphan, there would be NO MORE ORPHANS! one percent decided to truly be God's hands and feet, to love the least of these. To follow what james 1:27 says "religion our father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to LOOK AFTER ORPHANS AND WIDOWS in their distress."
The briggs family (27 children, most adopted ) are sticking up and covering for some people. Help them out! Don't be that 99%. save a child, be their hero forever. Go change the world of just one child. You don't have to be rich, you just need to have love. Please.
And pray for anthony. It is technically spring. He will be transfered to an institution anyday now. Most children transfered DIE within the first year. Don't let Anthony die without knowing the love of a family.
