Help Bring Lera Home

Im pretty sure everyone in the Down syndrome community knows all about Lera. For those who don't let me tell you about her. Lera is a beautiful blond haired, blue eyed Russian beauty. She is actually just a few months younger than my Alex making her soon to be 6 years old. Lera also has something in common with my Eian, she also has Down syndrome. Lera has spent her whole life in an orphanage, and has recently been sent to an institution. Let me tell you that is a fate I don't even wanna think about. Lera has a way out. The Higbie family are in the process of adopting her. The only catch is they are short the money they need to have or they wont be able to adopt her. This is the facebook status that Diane Higbie posted.
As if the situation couldn't be any worse. Lera may lose yet another family. Diane has told me that SWAF will not let the move forward unless they have $35,000 by the end of March...they would need $18,000. This is awful, this is something only God can change...Please please please pass this on, please share with your church, your families, your friends, FB, your blogs...PRAY, DONATE, SHARE!!

So I ask you please go over and check out Diane's blog Saving Lera and join in on the giveaway going on to help raise the money, or just donate. Lets help get this beauty home to her family.
