She is blind, has developmental delays, and has flat feet.
She lives in an orphanage in Eastern Europe.
Her profile on Reeces Rainbow says the following:
Carissa and her twin sister were in an orphanage from birth, until their aunt took them into her home. They did not receive the medical care they needed, and Carissa lost her vision. After three years, when they became 6 years old, the girls were taken back to an orphanage.
Unfortunately, the girls were separated in different orphanages due to Carissa’s blindness, and her sister was adopted. Carissa is well cared for in her internat, but she was very lonely without her sister. That is why she was placed in intensive care unit. The girl was in a deep psychological shock – she was separated from her sister, the only person she had, and placed to unknown people. She was scared, and she regressed. In internat they thought that Khistina can not move and talk. She was diagnosed with deep mental retardation. Before going to the internat she was walking by the hand, reacted to outside world and recognised people. Not only did she talk, but she was singing! Now she had no motivation to sing, to move, to talk. The girl refused food. During four months in internat she literally become a skeleton.
Several kids from that internat were brought to a major city for medical help. Carissa started eating better and sitting up. She could not walk, her feets were very weak. This girl needs care and attention, and will blossom in a family.
Her story so far is tragic - but if she had a family to call her own, can you imagine how she would blossom ? Do you know her family ? Are you her mommy ? Or daddy ?
Please - share her profile - you might just be the one who gives her the gift of a family !!
She has a pitiful $24 in her grant. Can you help that grow ?
