Waiting Wednesday: Heath

There is this one little boy.... who has the heart of many in the adoption world.

Many have advocated, shared about him, prayed for his family.

Many families have seen his picture and said no, I can't take on those kinds of needs.

After how many years, it's about time someone looked past his needs.

And saw the precious boy in need of a family.

Because that all it really boils down too.

He didn't chose to live this life, to be confined to mental institution.

He didn't chose to have Down syndrome so he could become an orphan.

If he had the choice, he would have chosen a loving family.

Something he has been deprived of.

Meet Heath:

His adoption is just about payed for so you can't use that as an excuse.

Can you make room in your heart for him?

Boy, Born April 8, 2001
Heath is a sweet little boy who desperately needs a family.    
Heath is a twelve year old boy with Down Syndrome. He is tiny in stature. His feet hardly reach the edge of his shared wheelchair. Because of his age, he has already been transferred from the stimulating environment of his baby house to a dull and underfunded mental institute for boys ages 6-18. He is no longer the youngest boy in his group, but he is certainly among the smallest.
Heath is not a recent transfer. He has lived in the stifling boredom of institution life for a long time. He has lost the vivacity of life at the baby houses. In his three years at the institute, he has been given nothing of his own. He has not seen a book or a toy. He has never been gathered into anyone’s loving arms. He is a very lonely little fellow in desperate need of love and comfort.
We have few other details on Heath. He has been seen in a wheelchair, so he may not be able to walk. We don’t know if or how well he talks, or any other details on his medical condition. We do know that he is a cute, chubby-cheeked, dirty and neglected lonely little lost boy who needs a mother more than almost anyone else in the world.
If you would like to learn more about Heath from a family who met him at his present institute, please follow these links:
$22,494.50 is available towards the cost of my adoption!
