We're going to start being a voice for a child each week! We will be featuring a child/orphan weekly, most all of whom have down syndrome or cerebral palsy and are up for adoption. One of the very reasons Voices 4 the Voiceless was started was because of the precious face seen on a friend's blog. Her name was Terri Lynn and she had been institutionalized and was literally dying in the institution! Praise God she was adopted soon after the word spread about this precious child! Had it not been for others who helped spread the word - who knows if I would have ever known about the tragic situations these children with down syndrome face in other countries!
This precious child is facing institution!
When a child faces institution, it is because they have hit the age of 5 and once they are institutionalized, they are drugged, kept in a crib and because of neglect, usually die there. It is absolutely devastating and these children deserve loving homes just like any other orphan! All of this because they have down syndrome, or something similar and in many countries... this means they are worthless. :(

Olga DOES NOT have down syndrome, instead, she has Cerebral Palsy.
Olga was born in December of 2007.
She is a female with gray colored eyes, and brown hair. Her nature is said to be calm.
From an adoptive family who met her in August of 2011:
"She is gorgeous - long eyelashes, blue eyes, beautiful teeth and smile. She seemed to have quite limited movement."
She currently has a little over $7,000.00 that is available towards the cost of her adoption!
Will you be a voice for Olga?
Thanks so much, Voices 4 the Voiceless
