Sasha and Alexei

Remember Orphanage 45?

The good news is that Nicky Z has a family coming for him!

The bad news is that Sasha has been transferredHere.  Except most likely, he would be placed in a lying-down room that no outsider has even seen yet, due to the severity of his needs. He would probably never see sunshine again in that room, and most likely, he would die within a year.

  Look how tiny he is! This pictures was taken 2 years ago, when he was 6 years old. He is like a baby, both in size and development.  If he is lucky enough to be rescued, he would most likely need to spend a few weeks in a hospital in order to gain some weight without suffering re-feeding issues.  He would need to be treated like a newborn, not the 8-year-old his profile says he is.  He would need to be loved unconditionally, like a newborn, in order to heal emotionally from the years of neglect and possibly worse, to let go of his self-harming habits. 

 Here is an earlier picture of him, younger, a bit less damaged:

Can you see the sweetie he was meant to be?

Please, somebody, save him from a certain death in the locked room in an impoverished institution!!!


And that leaves Alexei in Orphanage 45.  One by one, his friends have left:  Nikolai has been adopted, Nicky Z will be soon, and Sasha transferred... Does he have other friends?  Is he shunned because of his disability?  Has he been transferred as well?

Look at his bright, alert eyes!  He will be turning 9 in just 2 weeks! Tiny, but active and playful! Doesn't he look like he has a ton of potential?  Could he be a brother to your children?  Please, please save him before he, too, becomes a Lost Boy.
