HELP NEEDED-Adopting 3 disabled children and time is ticking
We are trying to bring home Mykyta (he is four and has hydrocephalus and Goldenhar syndrome), Timur (age four he also has hydrocephalus and he's blind), and Leyehna (age fifteen, but she's the size of a two-year-old and cannot speak or walk. She only has hydrocephalus, but was placed in a mental institution. In Ukraine, you can go to a mental institution for ANYTHING--including a cleft lip or missing finger, etc. Children are mistreated and often starve to death in these places. If not adopted by the age of 16, they never leave--it's like a prison. Mykyta is due for transfer to one/or possibly could have just been transferred last month and Timur will be probably in Feb.)
All these children have ever done is lay in cribs or beds. No medical attention, no schooling, no love, no toys, little food (Mykyta's four years old & fifteen pounds!)
We have been adopting the children since Dec. 2009. Our children are running out of time...and so is our paperwork!!!
Can someone please visit our website, and help us??? -- www.ukrainianorphans.com
