Walking Sunshine

This is Yasmine:

She just turned seven years old.

She is an orphan in Eastern Europe, just like our Gideon.  She has Cerebral Palsy, just like our Gideon.  But unlike our Gideon, she does not have a large grant to help her mommy and daddy to bring her home.  And unlike our Gideon, she does not yet have a mommy and daddy committed to her.  She is still waiting.

According to the most recent report, she is still at the Baby House.  But not for much longer.  Not much longer at all for sweet Yasmine.  Her days are numbered.  She is facing transfer to an institution any day.  Truly, she may have already been transferred.  This just is not known at this time.  

From her Reece's Rainbow profile:

Girl, Born June 19, 2004
Yasmine is walking sunshine!  What a glorious smile and a personality to match!  Yasmine was born with CP .  She has congeinital hydrocephaly as well.   Her feet/ankles are turned in, but she is able to pull to a stand and tries so hard to get around!   Surgery and therapy can make a world of difference for this darling little girl.
She is already 6 and facing the institution soon.    She is blessed to still be at the baby house. 
Let's find a family for her FAST!!!

Darling Yasmine is waiting for her mommy and daddy.  This picture, taken more recently than those above, shows a glimpse of her beautiful spirit, don't you think?

Wouldn't you just love to know this child?  To sit and listen to her thoughts?  To brush her hair and put ribbons in it?  She is a precious little lady, waiting and waiting for her family to find her.  

Does this look like a child that should be locked away?  

She is getting older, but I pray that somebody will see that she is not "too old."  She is not "too damaged."  She is not "too much work."  She is a treasure
waiting to be discovered.

Please pray for Yasmine!
Share her story.
Her mommy and daddy are out there, somewhere.
I have to believe that.
Could you be a part of God's rescue plan for Yasmine?
