Crib Mates

 
Two years ago they crossed the ocean to adopt four treasures.
 
One of those treasures was stuck in a laying down room. Evan.
 
 
Until he was adopted, Evan spent just about his entire life stuck inside a crib. No ever took him out except for occasional medical treatments.  Because leaving his crib terrified him so much, his sweet family spent many of their visits with him just reaching through the slats of his crib, softly talking to him, gently touching him.
 
Evan was wasting away in that laying down room.  At age 11, he was the size of a one year old. He couldn't sit up, so he ate every meal laying down.  He couldn't roll over.  He was in constant pain and his bones were degenerating.
 
Two years home and Evan is growing and changing. He's experiencing life outside the crib and he is loving it. 
 
 
He has a Mama and a Papa who love him. 
 
And brothers and sisters who think he is pretty darn special!
 
 
 
He left many friends behind.
 
All his crib mates.  Children who are today, two years later, still stuck inside cribs - wasting away.
 
The Blooms spent time with many of his crib friends.  What they saw broke their hearts into tiny bits. 
 
Kayleigh blogs about these kids all the time. She is desperate to find families for them. 
 
But she isn't just blogging.
 
She is going back to rescue two of Evan's buddies.
 
The little girl who lay on his left.
 
Daisy.
 
 
 
And the little boy who lay on his right.
 
Lee
 
 
Evan's crib mates.
 
Precious treasures - each with their own story.
 
So Stay tuned....
 
Their stories are worth reading!
