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!

Boy, born October 1997

Rough Mental Delay, Spina Bifida, Hydrocephaly low Paraplegia

Maxim is one of the most engaging and lovable children you ever could meet. He picks up English very easily and with the help of a special program (Individual Orphan Caregiver) he has significantly expanded his vocabulary. He started to pronounce words and sounds more clearly and audibly and he can join words into sentences. As Maxim grows it is more difficult for him to get around and he is having other health issues. He was tested recently to see if he could get an operation in Ukraine to help him. There are no physicians in Ukraine that can help Maxim. Physicians have been contacted in the U.S. and we believe he can be helped. Children with Spina Bifida deserve to have a family and live their lives like anyone else. Please take Maxim into your home and love him. Maxim is a blessing to everyone that meets him and you could have this blessing in your arms.

Families must be homestudy approved to commit.

$111.00 is available towards the cost of my adoption!

Maxim is 14 years old! He has less than two years before he ages out. PLEASE HELP HIM KNOW THE LOVE OF A FAMILY!

This is Maxim's present and future without a family.

The darkness, enveloping the room.

It’s only light, flickering in the distance.

The light slowly disappears, as sleep envelops everything.


The dreams of past, sweeping into the present.

It’s the day, which happened a year ago.

The fire that destroyed two lives, and changed another.


The food is disgusting, digestive problems into me.

It’s it my fault, that I was orphanated?

The hopes I’ve been hopping, hop away like a hare leaving nothing


The years by years, leave me empty.

It’s by that time; I knew I’d never be adopted.

The home is then taken, by another force of fate

The weeks went bye, I grew weaker.

It’s that way, how I died.

The eyes closed, and my suffering finally ended.
