He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy,
carrying sheaves with him. Psalm 126:6

For Emmitt

A while back I mentioned Emmitt in one of my Waiting Children Wednesday posts.  Today he gets a post all to himself!  Here he is:

Isn't he so handsome!  He is 14 and lives in an adult mental institution.  This is ridiculous because families that have met him say that he is super smart!  His only crime - he can't walk.  Instead of anyone taking the time to work with him or even push him in a wheelchair, he has been left in a crib.  He's 14!  Many of you reading this have children.  Can you imagine your child in a crib at that age?!  It is gut wrenching.

According to the families that have met him, he is sweet and kind despite the way he has been treated.  He would make someone such a wonderful son.  Please consider rescuing Emmitt.  He deserves better than this.

  1. Thank you so much for blogging for "my" boy! His Mama has to be out there somewhere!

    I also linked your post to my post about Emmitt today: http://savinghissparrows.blogspot.com/2012/07/18-months-to-save-emmitt.html

    1. Thanks, Pam. I just linked yours to mine as well.

  2. I have been trying to get the word out about Emmitt too. Such a sweet boy. I wish we could adopt him.
    Do you know what country he is from or the age limit of the parents? Thank you for rallying for him. We need to shout from the roof tops to find him a family before he ages out.

    1. I am not sure where he is, but my guess would be U.

  3. Emmitt has a chance to be on angel tree if he wins the vote! http://reecesrainbow.org/my-own-little-starfish
