This little girl is named Varsha. She has down syndrome. She is available for adoption from India. She has a sizable grant through Reece's Rainbow where you can read all about her if you commit to adopt her now.
After watching Slumdog Millionaire, I shared on my other blog how heartbreaking it was to see the horrible life that many orphaned children live in India. Then someone brought to my attention that it is possible to adopt from India although many restrictions apply, and that there is hope for the beautiful children in India like Varsha to find loving homes.
Please consider adopting this happy six year old girl!
