Meet Bridget

I would like to introduce you to a beautiful little girl named Bridget.

I have loved this sweet little girl since the first time I laid eyes on her! Bridget was born with Down syndrome. A few months ago, she turned 5 years-old. In her birth country that means that her time has run out. She will soon be transferred to a mental institution (if she has not been already), a place where many (otherwise healthy) children die within the first year of transfer due to the horrible living conditions. That simply cannot be her fate.

Bridget currently has a $3000 grant towards her adoption. Unfortunately, that is still just a drop in the bucket when total adoption costs are estimated at $30,000. Thankfully, the fabulous Dalas has made it her personal mission to raise the funds necessary to help this precious little girl find a family.

Dalas is currently hosting a fundraiser (through Thirty-One Gifts; 20% of all sales will be placed directly into Bridget's grant fund) as well as a giveaway on her blog to raise money for Bridget's grant.

By purchasing items from Bridget's Fundraiser, donating to her grant fund and/or sharing Dalas' giveaway on your blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc. not only will you be entered for a chance to win a prize in Dalas' giveaway, but your name will also be entered into our Adoption Awareness Giveaway.

And that's not all! Bridget is also featured on Reece's Rainbow's Angel Tree and for every donation of $35 or more, you will receive a beautiful Christmas ornament!

Please join Dalas and I in raising your voices for this beautiful little girl. She does not deserve the fate that awaits her if a family does not step forward to bring her home soon.

Can I tell you my heart skipped a beat when I saw her posted on someones blog thinking that she might be committed to. I am head over heels in love with this child. Circumstances right now don't present us to be able to adopt, which greatly saddens me.

I just purchased her Christmas ornament thru RR.

Isn't she just so precious. I visit her photo every day and say prayers for her.
