Teamwork Tuesday: This is Beauty

This is Arina

This little girl is waiting for a family. I think she is exquisite!!  

Do you see a little girl with chopped hair, crossed eyes, and Down syndrome who is poorly dressed and a world away? Do you see a little girl who you cannot relate to? A child who is not your responsibility. A child who you cannot possibly help?

Look again.

Don't you see her hair long and curled, with a beautiful bow? Don't you see those big brown eyes twinkling with mischief? Can't you picture her in a party dress like the Princess she is?  She is a six year old little girl , just like any six year old little girl...if given the chance. She is an orphan and she is our responsibility. She is an orphan because no one wanted the responsibility, no one wanted to love her, and no one saw her beauty. 

We all have the ability to help in some way.

We can all pray, share and/or donate. 

And we all have the ability to not look away. We can see her beauty, if we look.

 Arina's info
Date of Birth: May 31, 2006
Gender: Female
Eyes: Brown
Hair: Dark
Nature: Calm

Diagnosis: Down syndrome
This beautiful Arina needs a mama to love her and help he ber all she can be. She has dark hair and dark eyes. She does not have a heart condition, but her medical records indicate she has some kind of bacterial *difference* in her kidneys. She is allergic to eggs, citrus fruit, and red vegetables. Her kidney dysfunction may be a reaction to eating these items. She will need to be seen by a specialist when she gets home. She is also farsighted and will need corrective glasses. But she is SO beautiful and so deserving of a family to call her own!

$7300.83 is available towards the cost of my adoption!
