Sasha Carpenter - Anyone afraid of adopting a child with a CP this!!!!

Here is Lina's big sister Sasha!  Anyone afraid of adopting a child with Cerebral Palsy?  Watch Sasha sing!  She has a gift from the LORD! She has cerebral palsy!  She is adopted from Russia and had she not been adopted she would now be in a mental institution and probably would never have walked!  YES, cerebral palsy is a broad term that covers many differing degrees of the diagnosis - our other 2 daughters have more severe and different types of cerebral palsy (brain injury basically) but we were told Sasha would never walk! 

Watch our miracle child!  Watch the child that the LORD used to open our eyes to the plight of children that are orphaned with special needs!  We are the most blessed parents in the whole world.  I am sobbing as I write this post because I know the LORD has a BIG PLAN for this very special young Sasha Carpenter - actually her real legal name is "Natalya Aleksandra "Sasha" Carpenter!
