URGENT! SPREAD THE WORD!
- Via email
Dear Pro-Life Leaders,
I have received an urgent notice from one of my fellow diocesan pro-life leaders. Please pray for this newborn and that he/she will find a good home. Anything you can do to help will be appreciated. Read on.
Nick Silverio of Safe Haven for Newborns in Florida has asked that we spread the word of a disabled newborn in need of adoption.
The child, born today, has no arms, only one leg, and is missing a good portion of his jaw - but his prognosis is good. The baby was abandoned by his mother under the Florida Safe Haven law and, unless potential adoptive parents can be found, quickly, the child will become a ward of the state (and, it is feared, the target of euthanasia). The Florida Department of Children and Families will not become involved unless information is obtained that may suggest some type of abuse or neglect (which is not evident at this time). Catholic Charities in Florida is not currently able to assist with adoption services.
Please forward this information on to any agency, organization or individual that may be able to assist in locating interested potential adoptive parents.
Nick's cell phone number is 786-246-1304 and the his web site is savehaven.
It has been my experience in the very recent past that adoptive parents for disabled infants have been found through the efforts of pro-life people who simply made the need known via e-mail.
Please pray for this baby and his biological mother as well.
Thanks! Andrea Albanese
