Alisa is on borrowed time!
At age 4, children with special needs residing in orphanages in EE are typically transferred to institutions. The stats I recieved from the national Down Syndrome support group in our girls' country is that 78% with significant special needs die within a year of this transfer due to the care being so poor. Alisa is 5, she should have been transferred by now. We are doing our very best to get the paperwork done at rapid pace. Unfortunately, a lot of it is out of our hands. Please pray with us that God will move paperwork mountains for us and protect little Alisa until we can get to her. Please pray that the needed funds will find their way to us. Please help spread the word about the other children on the brink of institutionalization or the sweet ones already transferred.
