After YEARS of waiting on an impersonal list it took only 48 hours after an advocacy post for Matthew to be matched with his family!
These kids are sooooo much more than two lines of medical information. They are beautiful human beings ready to give and receive love. They are not "files" or "cases" or "a walking special needs diagnosis" and they deserve better than being a number on a list. The deserve better than to wait needlessly while their childhood is lost to institutions.
Sigh, I know you all get it.
Thanks to everyone who helped spread the word.
