Waiting Wednesday: Neal

Today I want you to meet Neal. He is a sweet little boy waiting for a family. But he doesn't have Down syndrome. He has Epidermolysis Bullosa, or EB. Just little Tripp. But Neal's EB, isn't as severe or rare as Tripp's, ans he needs a family fast to get him the proper medical care and bandages that will be best for him. Please... won't you consider Neal??

Neal 2H

Guardian Angel
Boy, born March 2011
From a missionary who knows him:   Could you please help this little angel? He has Epidermolysis Bullosa like our adorable Anton. The agency has confirmed his availability for an international adoption. We have been advocating for Neal for about 6 months by now. He is very patient and not crying when the bandages are changed. He has bright black hair and the hazel ( almost black) eyes.
You can read more about EB at  His form of EB is Dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (DEB)   Online support groups are available!
