Please help!

I am copying and pasting an email I received from a friend below to try to get the word out to help Lera and her family that is trying to adopt her. If you click on the link below you can read about the family that is adopting Lera from Russia and if you make a donation you can help save Lera's life!!! The donations through Reece's Rainbow are tax deductible. This is a miraculous organization that helps save lives of children with Down syndrome who are living in orphanages in eastern Europe and Russia because their parents gave them up for adoption. Many of these children, if they are not adopted by the age of 4 or 5 (depending on the country) are transferred to institutions where the living conditions or so deplorable that many die within a year of being transferred. Please read the email from my friend below and consider helping to save Lera. The money donated will go directly to her fund to pay for the cost of her adoption. Thank you so much!!!

Hello to my dearest friends!!
I am writing with a huge favor!! I am sure that many of you are familiar with Lera is has been waiting to be adopted from Russia for what seems like FOREVER!! Her family had an appointment this week to go and meet her for the first time and it got rescheduled because they still don't have enough money. The amount they need keeps going up and even though they have almost $20,000, they still need another $20,000. Here is the really bad news!!! Lera was just transferred to an institution. We all know how horrible this is!! What I am hoping is that maybe everyone can do a quick blog post or facebook post to spread the word to get people to help donate to her Reeces Rainbow account. This is so urgent!! Everyday she is in that institution is a day too long!! Here is a picture of Lera that you can use if you would like as well as the link to their donation page. Thanks for any help you can give for Lera!! Thanks.
Love, Denise

I was just saying that Lera lost her 3rd family around the time we committed to Arina. I wanted to get her too, but found out she was in a totally different country! She has been on RR forever, she needs to come home!!
