Mina is a precious little girl recently rescued from an orphanage in Eastern Europe who is now finally home with her forever family! She had been without a mother or father to love her & care for her each day. No one to rock her, kiss her gently or tell her she's loved. She is blessed with an extra chromosome known as Down syndrome, which for her that meant a life of being viewed as worthless in the country she was born into & a life without hope. Because of this her parents gave her up at the age of 6 months when they found out the diagnosis & from there her life progressivly went down hill. We are the Gower family residing in OKC who recently adopted this little angel. She was extremely malnourished and unable to do just about anything when we first met her. She will be 2 in January & is the size of a 3-6 month old weighing 14lbs. She continues to amaze us at how quickly she is progressing with love and nutrition. She has learned to sit up, roll over, feed herself finger foods, hold her own bottle and loves to interact with toys and other children. Her life has changed so much in such a short period of time and will forever be changed! Thank you Lord for putting a burden on our hearts to rescue this little blessing and making her apart of our family!

Really there is regular water there!!! It's just the finding it part!! We bought big jugs with a dark blue cap and it started with an M (looked like an upside down W) and it tasted like regular bottled water! So glad to see everything is going so well. Can't wait to see pictures of your first meeting!!!

I don't know if that comment I just left went through oops. It said really there is regular water there. We got big jugs that had a dark blue cap and it started with an M, looked like an upside down W. It was in all the markets. Tell them "no gas." So glad to see things are going well and I can't wait to see pictures of your first meeting!
