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!

Adoption Cost- PAID

A lot of you know this already, but I just wanted to remind you. Anthony has $20012.19 in his fund towards his adoption! That means his adoption is already paid for, he just needs a family to go get him! He's almost 6, which means he's probably the oldest in the baby house he is in! He should be starting first grade this fall, but he can't. In his country, like most, orphans aren't allowed to get an education, ebb if theyre not special Ed, how messed up is that? First grade is supposed to be the year you feel most grown up because you go to school all day and not half a day. But no, Anthony will be spending his year, just like all the rest, alone, quiet, in a baby house for crying out loud! He needs a family! Friends. Someone to catch him when he falls, someone to love him, someone to introduce him to Jesus! This boy is beyond desperate! If God is calling you to adopt him, by golly, DO IT! if not, at least PRAY FOR HIM! God answers prayers! God wants Anthony to be found by a family! I'm not saying that you need to adopt, I'm pleading for support! My heart goes out for this kid, if I were old enough, I probably wouldnt be writing this, but I'm only a teen, definitely not old enough to adopt from across the world! $20012.19 is A LOT of money, but it's already in Anthony's fund! His adoption is paid for! Come on people, take heart! Plz help this boy, we're his voice! He deserves a second chance! Keep Anthony in your prayers! I hope he has a family committed to him by his 7th birthday! With God, ALL things are possible! Have a blessed evening!
In His Holy Name,
Spud <3
