Not Good Enough for a Family

That's what a judge in Russia declared little four-year-old Kirill to be - not good enough for a family. Just like that, little Kirill has been sentenced to life within an institution without the possibility of parole. Ever. His crime? Being born with Down's Syndrome.

Fortunately, there is a brave family who is willing to fight for his freedom. They are appealing the judge's decision and plan to take this case all the way to the Supreme Court in Moscow. But they can't do it alone! They need the support of many, many prayer warriors to turn the tide of societal prejudice and ignorance that now threaten to keep Kirill captive - forever.

Would you be a prayer warrior for Kirill?

Please take a moment to read his story here.
