31 for 21 - Day 22 - Blog Buddies - A Perfect Lily

Today we are highlighting an incredible blog and family at a site called: A Perfect Lily.  Lily is the youngest of ten children and her family is working to help fund the adoption of Artem, a child through Reece's Rainbows, which is an amazing adoption organization that helps people adopt children who have Down syndrome.  

Recently, Lily and her family visited the Roloff Farm from Little People Big World on TLC.  Here are some photos from their trip, but please visit their blog: A Perfect Lily to read more and to consider donating to their adoption of Artem, a young boy who is desperately seeking a family to bring him home.

Artem K. 5G

Artem K.
Boy, born June 4, 2006
Eyes: Brown
Hair: dark brown
Temperament: good-natured
It is so painful to see these kids whose mothers drank during their pregnancy :( (( Artem's mom was clearly not interested in giving him the best chance in life. This was her first pregnancy, he was born at 38 weeks, but she smoked and drank throughout the pregnancy. His mother kept him home until he was nearly a year old, so there is no telling what other damage she may have caused him during that time. Despite his difficult beginnings, he is described as a good natured boy, and will thrive in a loving family. He does have a minor myocardiopathy that should be followed once home, but he is active and doing much better now that he is in the orphanage.
Lots more photos available!

$11130.00 is available towards the cost of my adoption!
