Desensitized? -- URGENT NEED!

Have you become desensitized? Have you seen too many pictures of underweight children who are severely malnourished that it doesn't phase you anymore?

She is almost 6 years old, and weighs less than 10 pounds.

I didn't realized I had become desensitized until I was telling someone about Princess Carrington, and they were shocked and said that she weighed less than a Thanksgiving turkey!

Not the best comparison, but it's so true! Carrington did weigh less, and Zoey does now.

Your. Thanksgiving. Turkey. Weighed. More. Than. This. Six. Year. Old.

Even if you've seen a situation like her before, really think about her and her situation. She has only weighs 2-4 pounds more than her birth weight. My recently-turned-6-yo sister weighs 5 times as much as her. My 2 yo brother weighs almost 3 times as much as her.

Please don't be desensitized!

PLEASE realize the URGENCY of finding her a family!!!

PLEASE do something to HELP! 

Whether that be adopting, or sharing her everywhere you can!

  1. Sarah, great post. . . I hope that I never reach the point where I am desensitized. I am amazed how malnourished these children are. Carrington, Katey, and Zoey are just the ones we know about :(
