Kirill’s Story

Kirill is a little boy from Russia who was denied adoption into a wonderful family because he has Down syndrome. The family desperately needs help to raise awareness about the injustice of this case, and that’s why I’m blogging about it.

It breaks my heart that there are still some areas in this world who deem wonderful children with developmental delays as “unfit” and put them in mental institutions, and it breaks my heart that this family who fought so hard to bring him home would be denied the adoption over it. I am not a religious person, but I do believe in a higher power and I do pray that this family gets their little boy home safely very soon. No child should ever be denied a safe and loving home because of his or her developmental delay and/or physical delay. Every child, every person, deserves love and family.

I encourage you to read Kirill’s story, and spread the word on. This little boy does deserve a loving family, and the court system in Moscow needs to understand that and let this little boy – and other children with developmental delays – have a family.

    @Danielle-Marie: It touches mine as well. I hope they win this appeal and he gets to go home with them.

    @j's Momma: it's the very least I could do, really! It infuriates me that they refused this lovely boy a home and family.
