A Voice For Vanya

I've got a remarkable friend living in Ukraine. She and her husband have hearts full of compassion, and it shows in everything they do.

My friend has asked me for help and I cannot refuse her. She's asked me to help her find a family for one precious little boy named Vanya. Vanya is blind and living in a baby home in Ukraine. He does not receive the specialized care required to give him the life skills necessary to manage with his impairment. If Vanya does not find a family he faces being moved into the next tier of children's homes where it is very likely he will continue on being largely ignored, and possibly fall prey to victimization at the hands of older children.

I cannot tell you how much I trust the opinion of my friend. If she says Vanya is a remarkable and loving child HE IS. My friend and her husband would bring Vanya home themselves if it weren't for the fact that they are already in process to adopt sibling boys from Ethiopia.

Please, please, Bloggy friends, help get the word out about Vanya! Follow THIS link to learn more. Then, please post about Vanya on your blog or social networking site.

I shared this link with the Ukraine Yahoo Adoption group in case someone there is looking...Hoping Vanya has a family soon.

This is a terrifying future--we adopted Ella shortly before her third birthday. She needed a prosthetic leg, could hardly speak, and would have been eaten alive at the older children's home. I wish I had some idea of someone...I'll be praying.
