Day 13

Get It Down; 31 for 21

I'm getting sick. I can feel it coming on. I would share my crazy day but I can't even type straight.

In order to stick to the 31 for 21 challenge I will quickly share one of my favorite things to do...surf the Reece's Rainbow website. This organization is an international Down Syndrome orphan ministry. 

I love to look at all the children, pray for them, and let my heart break for them. I mean, just look at this beautiful face!

This bright smiling boy is most likely a social orphan, meaning that he has living parents that can't or won't take care of him. He is almost 5 years old and is running out of time. He'll soon be transferred to a mental institution where he may not survive even another year. 

Just because he has Down Syndrome.

In a more perfect world he would be headed to Kindergarten.
