Good News about Austin
He is in an orphange that is sponsored by Half the Sky. Half the Sky is an organization that helps train orpahnage workers to provide a loving environment for children. Orphanages usually feed and clothe children in the masses but do not teach them love or feel other emotions. Half the Sky teaches the importance of love and emotions to make sure a child will know what love is. It is important in the early years to teach a child about love so they develop the ability to love and be loved. Long term bonds and attachment to adoptive parents is crucial to the well being of the child. If the child does not receive this early loving care they may not be able to form that crucial bond with their family. Also Half the Sky helps make sure sick kids are given medical attention and all kids get healthy meals. Austin seems to be on track developmentally and seems to be on target for weight. We believe Half the Sky is the reason why he is thriving. If you are interested in learning more about Half the Sky they do have a web site. We are so grateful Half the Sky is taking care of our son.
