This sweet child is Aura Lee.
She lived in an orphanage for the first 6 years of her life. Lonely perhaps, neglected – probably, but her most basic needs are met.
She’s a beautiful child.
Then the day came. The awful, inevitable day of transfer. For many children this is a death sentence – that’s the horrible truth so many kids face. She was transferred to an adult mental institution. This is her shortly after transfer.
7 years old and tiny as a toddler. Starved. Restrained. Vulnerable.
Little Aura Lee just had her 8th birthday. Life for her is not life at all. Now, she’s literally hanging on by a thread. If you watch the video below carefully, you can see her collar bone protruding and bruises.

The good news is she has an incredible family fighting to get her out and bring her home. The bad part is the harsh reality little Aura Lee may not survive long enough. This family is in a big hurry! They are doing everything they can but they can’t do it alone. Please check out their bio to lean more about their journey and consider how you can help this little girl survive. Pray, donate, share? Heck, reach out to the family and ask how you can support them! I want to see this sweetheart come home. I want to meet her someday since she’ll be so close to me! I want to see her survive and thrive!
