Fatherless Friday

These two little girls desperately need someone to come for them....they are VERY near transfer...this is the information from Reeces Rainbow...

Girl, Born May 30, 2004

I can not even express to you how blessed this child is to still be her baby house. She needs to be adopted IMMEDIATELY. She can be adopted with Sophia and/or Shawna, who all desperately need families.

Lindsay is a beautiful girl who has endured much in her life in this orphanage. She was born with a secondary heart condition, although it may have rectified itself. She is considered severely delayed, and is working on her walking, even though sbhe is already 6 years old. This orphanage has a history of medicating the children, so she has spent much of her life in a crib, repressed….

Lindsay desperately needs a family who has experience adopting older children with special needs, and who has the time to give her to help her recover from this neglect and blossom into the child she is meant to be.

More photos available. She is facing the institution very soon, and is blessed to still be at the baby house. Someone please save her.

From an adoptive family who visited with her in January 2011: " She was sitting at a little table with Sophia. I think they were having their snack. She had this rattle which makes the most amazingly loud sound, I know because my boys got to play with one just like it. She didn't make noise with it but instead was checking it out so carefully. She would put the end of the handle in between her teeth and watch the little bells roll back and forth. She is such a beauty! I didn't recognize her at first because the other picture looks nothing like her. She has beautiful blonde wavy hair and blue eyes. Her and Sophia were buds and I think would make great sisters! Surely her Momma and Daddy are out there. "


Shawna (3)

Girl, Born March 2, 2004

Shawna has grown so much since her last photo! She is walking now, very social and affectionate. She has already turned 6 and is facing imminent institutionalization. She is healthy, but is considered severely delayed. PLEASE give Shawna a chance to be everything she can be, in a loving family who supports her and encourages her to grow and learn.

Shawna and Lindsay could be adopted together.

From one of our adoptive families who visited with her in December 2010: She was absolutely cute and got up to pose for the camera, she would make faces, smile and then laugh after the flash went off. She was very adorable but like many of the others was wearing a sheet as a diaper. She will be a blessing to any family. She was full of life, laughter and happiness not to mention beautiful!!

Please say an extra prayer for these girls...that they may have a future outside of institution walls.


  1. Jodi,

    Thank you so much for advocating for these two little girls. Our Julia (home 3 weeks) is from the same orphanage. I just want to mention, for any family that is interested in both or one of the girls, that the facilitator from this region (the one we worked with) is very hard working and cares deeply for the children in this orphanage. Please also remember Sonya who is in the 3-5 category on RR. She is at orphange #3 with these girls. My son got to visit with her when he was there with my husband. Caleb said she was very sweet. Thank you again, Jodi. We love your heart for these children!
    P.S. Here is a link to a new blog that my son started to advocate for waiting children.

  2. Thanks for posting! :)
    These little girls have my heart, as does Sonya in the same orphanage. But their chances of finding a family are even smaller, and they need families fast! I am praying with you that someone steps forward to save them from the institution... and to give them love and attention.
