All you Henry fans will have to wait...

....we will be at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) soon and my next post will share what we found out during our consultation with Dr. Campbell about the VEPTR procedure and whether or not Henry is a candidate!!

But for today, we have a visitor to the blog....

meet Malcolm!!

This sweet boy 4 year old boy is waiting in Russia for someone to adopt him!!

You can see another picture and his full story at

and I really want you to go there are read it all...

about how he is scheduled to be transferred  to a MENTAL INSTITUTION in a matter of MONTHS...

even though he is cognitively NORMAL....

how he is bullied by the bigger more physical boys in the orphanage....

how he loves his constant companion, his stuffed tiger (anyone remember the old Calvin and Hobbes cartoon???)


I will be shouting out for Malcolm often in the next few months...

because Henry is home and safe and loved and getting the best treatment American medicine can provide.

Malcom probably needs some therapy to walk....

but he DEFINITELY needs the love of a family and SOON!!! your heart...donate to his fund if you can...spread the word....

The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was:  "If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?"  But... the good Samaritan reversed the question:  "If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?"  ~Martin Luther King, Jr.


  1. I posted this on my facebook! God bless him and find him a home, fast!!

  2. Thanks for advocating for this sweet little guy. I saw his picture on RR recently too. I hope his family finds him in time!

  3. I ran across your blog thru the Catholic Bubble. Just wanted to say that my brother and his wife are in the process of adopting through Reece's Rainbow too. They have been very active in trying to find homes for these poor children in Russia.

    Their own little boy, "Alex" has CP, has been transferred to a mental institution already, but thankfully, my brother and sister-in-law will be bringing him home hopefully in March.

    I'll be praying that someone adopts this sweet little boy soon. It breaks my heart to hear how these children suffer.

  4. I would love to adopt him. It's unlikely to happen though. Say some prayers.

  5. Carla, I LOVE the quote at the bottom of this post! It is so very applicable to adoption, particularly of special needs children from EE. I PRAY little Malcolm has a family very soon!
