Poor Little Pumpkin

Doesn't this little face just break your heart?? I'm not sure if you are aware or not, but this precious three year old was found at a Melbourne railway station this weekend after being abandoned by her father. She was dubbed 'Pumpkin' by the police because of the Pumpkin Patch-brand clothing she was wearing. The police have been unable to find either her father (who has supposedly fled to the US) or her mother, who lives in New Zealand. Apparently she did not talk for the first two days. This just makes me want to cry. Her face is just so sweet, so expressive and she looks so very, very lost. I really hope that this little one's family can be found, but the police hold grave fears for their safety - apparently her dad battled depression, and they have been unable to find her mum (and I suspect they think she may have been murdered). I will be saying an extra prayer for Pumpkin tonight...

That is such a sad story. Poor little girl. What do you think will happen to her now? How can people do that to a small child? My heart just breaks for her. If you hear further information, please share.

I just found your blog from the FC yahoo group. This sweet face is breaking my heart!
Do you know any new news on her?


PS I can't wait to follow your journery to bring Alice home!!!
