Lauren Horton  SPRINGFIELD, OR
Two children with differing diagnosis yet the same need....a family. "Gary" is seven and was discarded at birth because he was born with no hands. "Marnie" is six and was abandoned because she has Down Syndrome. They are not worthless. They are worthy. We are in the process of adopting both children. Please!.....Donations of any size would be an incredible help and blessing. THANK YOU!!
