These families will be at the mercy of their facilitator who will be speaking the words needed to convince the judge that the adoption is in the best interest of these children. You see, in the world in which they live, they are damaged goods. And even in our country, they probably would have been aborted. But to these families, they are priceless treasures. They are wanted and loved. And to God, they are His chosen little ones.
So, if you happen to wake up during tonight, or maybe you are willing to set your alarm for @2:00 A.M. and purposely get up and get on your knees and pray for these kiddos and their families. There has never been a child with DS adopted out of this region. If the judge approves these adoptions, it could open the door for many more who wait. When one of the families were at this orphanage for their first visit, they were told that they were the first visitors to the orphanage in SEVEN YEARS. Ninety-eight children labeled as "damaged" by their society, and put away as far out of sight and mind as possible.
If one of these were your child, what would you do?????
