Dear Faithful Readers...
Do you remember when we prayed for this little one.. Tori? Adopted by the Burmans?
Well, overlooked in the furor of Tori's adoption was the other little one that they were also adopting.
She was the one whom God whispered into their ears... Get this one too... She needs you.
And they did.
This past week both girls were walked out of their respective orphanages/institutes and entered into their new lives as daughters, sisters, granddaughters and nieces.
It was only when they carried her out and lovingly undressed Carrington for the first time did the Burman's realize that she was seriously hanging on to life by a thread.
Pictures speak louder than words.
Eleven pounds. At three years of age.
As soon as the Burman's landed in the United States on Thursday night, Carrington was rushed to the hospital and is right being worked on around the clock as she is in a fight for her little life. No one who has seen her understands how she survived this long apart from God's Grace. Her body was in shut down when the Burman's brought her out.
Carrington is not the first little one to leave this particular orphanage in this state. She will not be the last.
Special needs children in Eastern Europe are NOT valued. Especially children with Down Syndrome. They are set aside. They are allowed to waste away. They are denied homes and families.
That is the truth.
Please pray for Carrington. Pray that God will breath life into her bones. Pray that she will be able to take in the nutrients she needs to allow her body to heal. Pray.
