This is Laurel!
Isn't her smile awesome?
She is 15 years old!
She has arthrogryposis in all limbs
She is an orphan and likely has been since birth
Can you Fathom that...15 years old and never having a family?!
Right now Laurel has something to smile about, even though she is an orphan in an Eastern European country she is in a good orphanage for older children with physical disabilities but.....
That will all change in just SIX short MONTHS....
Upon her 16th birthday in August...per her countries laws...she will be ineligible for adoption
Where will she go?!
She will likely go to an adult mental institution
An adult mental institution may mean very little food, no access to a toilet, no regular baths or dental care and confined to a bed...ALL day, EVERY day, for the REST of her life...
She needs to find a family ASAP!!!
Large Families and older parents are allowed to adopt in her country
Her family needs to be homestudy approved before committing
Please SHARE this! Publicity will increase the likelihood that her family will find her!
If you cannot adopt her you can donate to her Reece's Rainbow account the more money she has in the account the easier it will for her family to commit to her!
