An unfiinished story

Dear Life,

I want to tell you the story of a beautiful little girl.
Her name is Susanna.
She lives in Eastern Europe in the same country as Sofi.
She is six years old.
She has Spina Bifida.
Unlike Kumaka and all of his friends (including Sofi's), Susanna's Spina Bifida Story is different.

Susanna's back lesion has NEVER been closed.
Susanna has hydrocephalus yet has NEVER had a shunt.
Yet the  orphanage staff speaks of how amazed
they are with the girl moving around her bed
as she is the first child with spina bifida they
have seen do that.
Unfortunately Susanna NEVER LEAVES HER CRIB. 
She has never played with the other children outside of the crib.
Susanna not only interacts with the other child in her room but she has formed a significant relationship of friendship with him.
Their beds are one next to the other and they
exchange toys and “talk” to each other.
The caregivers explained whenever the girl
starts vocalizing, the boy joins her.
They have seen her reach out through the bars of his bed and try to “fix” his clothes the way the caregivers do.

Kumaka has a voice because of his parents.
Sofi has a voice because she will have parents.
Susanna has no voice.
She has no one to fight her battles.

We are praying that SOMEONE will read this, will see her picture, will ask for more information.
Susanna  desperately NEEDS parents who will step in, fight for Susanna to receive the correct medical care and bring her home!
Susanna deserves a chance at life.  A chance with a family.  She needs a miracle.

Susanna is a miracle.

Hopefully she's your miracle.

    1. It is heartbreaking. Praying that there is a family that reads this and feels moved to move forward for her. :)

  2. I am curious to find out what blog system you are utilizing?
    I'm having some small security problems with my latest blog and I would like to find something more safe. Do you have any solutions?
