A Pure Love Give Away-Saving Alexander

It is time for another Pure Love GiveAway!   Featuring iPad2--and who doesn't need or at least want one of those?

Many of you might recall a previous post of mine and Patti Rice's about the mental institutions in Eastern Europe [EE].  Mental institutions for children ages 5 years and up like my daughter Ellie.  Children with Down syndrome.  

It may be hard to imagine, but please please try.  Imagine my dear Ellie, being born in EE and sent to an orphanage.  With no one to hold her.  No one to comfort her.  No one to sing "Ellie Bear of Mine" to her.  Then, imagine Ellie being sent to an institution at the age of five or even earlier.  Imagine Ellie contained for life in a crib.  A crib.  Left to starve.  Left to live out her days surrounded by metal bars.

That is what recently happened to Alexander.

This is Alexander.
Isn't he handsome?

He has a wonderful forever family who loves him very much.  They love him SO much that they are trying to raise funds to rescue him from the mental institution in EE and bring him home to the US.

His family is wonderful, caring, and loving.  I know this.  I know this because I know his forever mother.  She is a good woman.  A good wife.  A good mother.

It would be so wonderful to just hop on a plane, scoop him up and say that he is forever theirs, but it does not work that way.  There is paperwork, home studies, travel, medical expenses, and tons of legal red tape both in Eastern Europe and the United States.  Money is needed.  Desperately.

This is Alexander at the orphanage.  BEFORE the institution.
At the orphanage, he was allowed to play, chase a ball, and be out of bed.

Until April 17, 2011, Alexander's Forever Family, the Taylor's, are doing an iPad2 Giveaway.  For more details, please visit their website. Only a $10 donation is needed to enter the giveaway.  More entries for posting their page FB.  Please spread the word.  Rescue dear Alexander.  What if this was your child, brother, sister, niece, nephew, grandchild?
