Be a Voice for the Voiceless - Proverbs 31: 8-9

Did you know that LINA had been on Katie's floor...

Ok...that is my there any wonder why there is a hurry LORD PLEASE hurry urgency to my voice!  HOW did LINA get moved to another floor?  I have no idea if you answer that in human terms, but I will answer it through saying "ONLY the LORD JESUS having HIS HAND upon her life!"
What has she suffered in her short 5 and 1/2 years? 

I don't know what our little Avi suffered in her first 4 years of life either! She was left in a crib day after day!  Lina has a huge bald spot on the back of her head but AVI has a completely flat head.  She has a completely flat head from the top of her head straight down her neck...there is no...and I MEAN no is completely flat.  Why..because she lay on her back for 4 straight years.  Why?  She was considered worthless.  She had a feeding tube for 4 years. She had no food or liquid to her lips for 4 years.  She had severely twisted club feet.  She has spastic quadriplegia.  She has damage to her eyes and a damaged right optic nerve.  She was considered worthless.  This is Avi on the first day I saw her....
This is AVI today...1 year later...she is now 5...

NO more feeding more club feet...NO more an orphan...NO more worthless...

She is priceless!  She is precious! She is our daughter! She is loved! She is valued! She knows it!!!! LOOK at that face!  She knows it!!

That is what is waiting for LINA!  HURRY home our dear sweet baby girl!!! 
 Ellianna Ya-Ting loves you!  She too was considered worthless and an orphan with special needs!  NO LONGER...look at that face!  She is loved, valued and cherished (and spoiled)!!
Big sister Sasha loves you (the photo is of Sasha and her friend in New York City this year - Sasha is the taller of the two in the photo) - the precious princess from Russia that the LORD used to open our eyes to the children with special needs!  Can you believe that had she not been adopted she would probably not ever by walking...she would be warehoused in a mental institution in Russia!  She is a gift and a priceless treasure with amazing talents and a huge heart!  She is a walking miracle!   Have you heard her sing?  If not check this out...

All of this is waiting for LINA!
Can you help us to get her home!

Check out the fundraisers!  Thank you!  May the LORD bless you!!

with love in Christ,
stephanie brian sasha ellianna avi and lina carpenter
