India Waiting Child: “Charlotte”

Advocating for orphans is both a wonderful privilege and an incredible challenge. Looking at the faces and reading the information of all the waiting children can be overwhelming and heartbreaking. Often it is even difficult to advocate for the children because of limited, outdated and/or illegible information. Even so, it is our joy to learn about these children and seek to find families for them. We continually bring them before the Father whose heart is so clearly for the fatherless.

Today, we want to advocate for Charlotte, a precious little 2½-year-old girl who has Down syndrome.

While there is not much information in her file, she is stated to be in physically good health. She has a good attitude towards other children and reacts normally towards adults.

Though we don’t currently have many details about Charlotte, we know that her Creator knows every detail about her. He formed her and knit her together. She is fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139). Because she is His creation, we advocate for her and long for her to experience the love and care of a forever family.

To the majority of the world, she is nameless and faceless. But Charlotte, we see you! And your Creator sees you!

Please pray for Charlotte and the hundreds of other children like her. If you would like to learn more about this little girl, please contact your Family Coordinator or email
