Here are just a few faces of some of the children who are still waiting for someone to come and get them. Not just anyone, but their mama and their daddy and maybe their siblings. These little ones truly don't have much time left.

They have been living in baby houses for all their lives most likely and most of them don't have any family, any person who comes to visit them. Anybody who really cares what happens to them.
They are very close to being transferred to mental institutions. This is not a good thing. They are usually taken care of by consistent nannies or caregivers, fed on schedule, and given medical treatment in the baby houses. Not so in the mental institutes.

Some like Spencer here, who I have just recently found out, HAS ALREADY been transferred. This makes me so very very sad! The reality of the situation is that most of the children with Down syndrome who are transferred WILL NOT SURVIVE the first year of being transferred. Look at that sweet face!

These little ones desperately need to be rescued. Yes I said RESCUED! I know some people don't like that term when referring to adoption. Maybe, however, they have never been to one of these places/orphanages/mental institutions and seen the reality that these kids face every day. If you don't like that statement, please visit this link, for a little more perspective. :)
But that is a post for another day.
Today we just need to get these kids noticed!! Then once they are, maybe getting a family will come next!! These little ones have been all but forgotten, and because of some awesome blogging buddies of mine, these faces ARE getting noticed!!

Adoption is EXPENSIVE! Just ask us!! Lol We had to get an adoption loan to help us bring Anna and Victoria home. But it was worth it!!
So very worth it!!!!But it is not an option for us again and we are having to raise every penny to bring our sweet Hailey home! You can check out our iPad2 giveaway here if you would like to help Daniel, too. He really wants to go to China to help bring his sister home. And I need him to go with me, as my hubby will not be going this time.
Look at her! I think she is trying to call us. Where are you Mommy? When are you coming, Daniel?
She was one of the ones still waiting last year. But next year she will be home for Christmas!!
Please help make that a reality for some of the faces pictured above. Donate to their adoption grant funds so that it will be easier for their future families to bring them home!
And most of all, don't forget to pray for all of these little ones!!
