Micah was born in Mexicali in 2005. The notes we have about Micah’s history are very minimal, but we do know that he was born to an illiterate 17 yr. old single mother, who had already been through drug rehab at the age of 14. He suffered severe abuse and neglect in his very early life, and by the time he was taken into care at 7 months old, he had broken limbs and was severely malnourished. Because of his past abuse, Micah lives in a state of severe anxiety which affects every area of his life. We also feel that he may be suffering with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome caused by drugs and alcohol abuse while an unborn child. Micah is now 8 yrs old, but still unable to read and write, and because of his behavior issues, unable to attend school.
Since starting the attachment program, we have seen MAJOR advances, and feel he may even be ready for school in September.
We are currently trying to raise $4000 for 3 weeks of very important therapy for him. Would you consider being part of this by giving a gift, however small and praying for us as we work through this.
...but despite these terrible beginnings in Life, THERE IS HOPE. With God's help, your help and a lot of perseverance, we can bring a permanent change to the lives of Micah & Tianna, and redeem the years that have been taken away...
Thank you for helping change the lives of these children...
