Every once in a while…you see one of those stories at the end of the news that leaves you in a pile of tears…the good kind…
Saw one of those last night.
About a little girl, tucked away behind the white walls of an orphanage in the Ukraine. At 4 years old she was headed to an adult mental institution where she would live out her life with no hope for a family or an education.
An American mother of 3 young girls saw her picture on a website…and she knew she had to rescue her. The mom said, we just knew that she was saying…you’re my mom and you’re my dad…come and get me.”
So they did…They traveled 6,000 miles to save her…to give her a real life… one where she could go to school…get a job…to be loved.
After 32 days of living in the Ukraine… The Cox Family brought little Mia home…introduced her to her 3 sisters, one of which was just like her…she had down syndrome too.
