About a month ago I began a blog posting about international special needs adoption. I'm not finished with that posting yet. But stay tuned.
And until then, I just have to share a blog posting from a blogging and Facebook friend who shares about Tori. She's in a mental institution overseas because she has cerebral palsy and "aged out" of the orphanage (not at age 18, mind you... at age 4 or 5 it happens there). Do you know what that means? It means, most likely, that she will be confined to a crib the vast majority of every day (if not all day). She will not receive therapy or schooling. She will wither away and die. Why? Because she's not "perfect." And over there, it's perfectly acceptable to just throw her away.
Are you Tori's forever family? If not, would you consider helping by contributing to her Reece's Rainbow fund?
