Lilmuni: A Reflection of India’s Encouraging Shift to Family-Based Care

THANK YOU! Because of you Lilmuni’s adoption is finalized. See her update here!

When Lilmuni’s parents died from a viral fever, she was completely alone.

She flew under the radar for a long time. Lilmuni tried to take care of herself, but soon she became weak and sick. Local officials found her abandoned in a big city in India.

Suddenly, her life was at a turning point: if they took her to an orphanage, she would face an uncertain, possibly heartbreaking, future. She might have become one of the 60% of girls that are trafficked from orphanages every year, or one of the 40% of orphaned children that become addicted to drugs or alcohol. She may never have known the love of a family again.

Instead, she was brought to our team so she could have the chance to be cherished as a daughter once more.

After searching for any living relatives, we learned that Lilmuni actually has a much older brother. He and his wife want to officially adopt Lilmuni! They are newly-married and ready to take on the responsibility of raising Lilmuni. Will you help them give this precious girl the love and security she deserves?

Your gift today will help Lilmuni move beyond the trauma and heartache of her past. Instead, she will be embraced and cherished by her loving family.

But there is more great news! By giving, you are not only helping Lilmuni grow up in a permanent and stable family. You are also becoming an advocate for the changes that are happening in India and around the world.

It is a big deal that Lilmuni’s case was brought to a team who believes that family- not an institution- is the best place for a child. Hearts are changing, and YOU are at the center of this cultural revolution. Instead of being labeled an orphan and getting abandoned in the orphanage system, Lilmuni was blessed with an advocate and a chance.
