Heavy Heart...

My heart has been heavy since reading this post from my dear friend Joanna. She is out to save a little boy named Shea. A little boy, so much like my own that I can barely breathe at the thought of what his life may become. You see, this little boy has spina bifida and all that comes with it. Just like Grey, Shea has a shunt, has bladder and bowel issues, and isn't able to stand or walk. And just like Grey, Shea is "a very good, and smart boy." The only difference is Grey has a family to love him, a family to help him, and a family who will never give up on him. Shea on the other hand, because of his age, is close to an institution where he will become bedridden for the rest of his life. A life that is worth so much. Please visit Shea's blog and do what you can to help us save Shea. Every little bit helps.

My husband and I adopted our sweet monkey with SB 7 mos ago and we would love to adopt several other special needs children if we had the money. It's sad that it costs so much money to adopt these children that are left to be institutionalized. I too will post this on our blog to help raise money for this precious child as well. I wish we had the money to adopt Shea ourself, as well as the others out there waiting for there speical family.

Thanks for sharing.

Tears and lots of love and prayers going out to that little boy (and last minute gift tributes). I am so moved by his story and hope his new family will have a blog of their own! Because with all these strong women (and men) working for him he is sure to find his forever family soon.
