Will He Ever Feel What She Felt?

peterFor nearly three years, Peter has been waiting. Waiting all day, waiting all night... He waits for expert medical care, he waits for attention, he waits for someone to come and take him out of his crib, he waits for someone to play with him, to teach him, to guide his development. But above all, he waits for this...


(Peach and her new daddy in the Vorzel Baby House #2 visiting room)

Will Peter ever know the security of a father’s arms wrapped around him? Will he ever feel the rhythmic peace of his daddy’s heartbeat thudding in his ear? If Patti over at A Perfect Lily has her way he will. She is hosting a pure love giveaway to raise awareness about Peter so that his forever family will find him and have a full adoption grant to cover the cost of saving his life.

Donate even just $10 between now and Feb. 10 and you will be a part of changing this child’s future... you will also be entered into a drawing to win an iPad, a Nikon D90 digital camera, or one of lots of other awesome prizes.

Ive been reading your blog for awhile. Potty Opera went through our family for for a few weeks bringing us all so much laughter and joy!

We are a same sex couple who adopted a Down Syndrome baby boy in August 2009. This year we decided we were ready for baby #2 and being so inspired by your story and the suffering children in other countries we decided to go international.

We were told right off the bat, no way, shape or form would a same sex couple EVER get an international baby. In fact, they said that if we were "just dating" and not an established family then it might be overlooked (true story).

These babies break my heart. I can't believe these laws and all of the ignorance that will keep a child from a loving home with all the medical attention he or she needs.

We are adopting locally and very excited. Having 2 Down Syndrome sons, for us, is a beautiful journey that my partner and I (and other older children) have embraced fully.

Thank You for giving these children a voice and allowing them to be seen. Without people like you they would remain nameless, faceless and unknown. You are an inspiration, a very good woman. Thank you. Nykki Poole
