Thank you for giving Genia, and other orphans like her, the hope and future of a forever family! 

Thanks to a special gift, Genia is healing and waiting for a family! Thank you for giving Genia, and other orphans like her, the hope and future of a forever family! 

As a young girl, Genia was abandoned -- alone, cold, hungry. She tragically joined the hundreds of orphans in Kyrgyzstan suffering from abuse and neglect, leaving scars of trauma and loss. Thankfully, Genia was placed with our partner in Kyrgyzstan and today, she is thriving! 

Genia is one of many orphans benefiting from a newly instated prospective foster and adoptive parenting school. A special gift made this school a possibility with the end goal of finding loving families for children like Genia. 

Through therapy, prayer, and medical treatment, Genia is emotionally healing from her painful past. She is excelling in school and rising to the top of her class, specifically in mathematics. Genia's adoption profile to place her with a Christian family is complete and she is just waiting for her forever family. 

Thank you for giving this precious little girl, and other orphans like her, the hope and sweet anticipation of a forever family!

2016 Annual Report - See the impact you made in the lives of orphans!Selfless giving makes adoptions like Dasha's possible

When Dasha first arrived at a children’s home in Kyrgyzstan three years ago, she had a number of severe health issues including fetal alcohol syndrome, vision problems, and a hole in her heart. At the age of 8 she had never been to school. Unfortunately, in Kyrgyz culture, it’s very unlikely that a child like Dasha will be adopted due to her physical issues and developmental delays.

Thankfully, a local woman named Lena wanted to adopt Dasha and thanks to a special gift, she was able to do just that! A single mom who already had several adopted children, Lena needed a steady job first before she could adopt again. With the support she received, Lena now runs a successful tutoring school and kindergarten in the village. Now Dasha has a mom for a lifetime! Thank you for making adoptions like this possible!

2016 Annual Report - See the impact you made in the lives of orphans! You started Michael's journey to a lifetime of love 

Michael’s journey home has been long and hard, but worth every effort! Crushed by the death of his wife, Michael’s father gave him up to the state as an infant. Michael had been living in an orphanage his entire life! Now re-married, holding a stable job and able to provide a safe home, Michael’s dad wanted desperately to bring his son home. After two years of counseling, discipleship, and YOUR financial support, Michael’s father was ready to bring him back home for good!

Michael is all settled in and loves his dad, new mother, and brother, Dilip. Because of your generosity, Michael no longer goes to bed uncertain of what tomorrow holds. Instead, he rises each morning with a smile knowing that Mom and Dad are right there next to him… now and for the rest of his life.

Once Abandoned, Now Beloved: Victoria is Thriving, Thanks to You!

 

 

 

Once Abandoned, Now Beloved: Victoria is Thriving, Thanks to You!"We can't thank you enough for all your help. May God bless you!"For the first five months of her life, Victoria was left alone in a cold apartment for days at a time. When someone finally found her and took her to a hospital, she was nearly dead. Victoria was sent to an orphanage. Suffering from serious neurological and psychiatric issues as well as a heart condition, things did not look good for her.

Thankfully, a wonderful family fell in love with Victoria and decided to adopt her. With your help, she was able to get medical tests and treatment to make the adoption transition complete. She is now thriving in her new family!

Her parents didn’t expect to see such a dramatic change in Victoria’s daily life. She is more calm and balanced. She doesn’t have outbursts and episodes as often as she used to. Her focus and attention span is improving. And her memory is just amazing!

Victoria’s road to healing will not be easy or quick, but with the love and support of her family she is already taking mighty steps in the right direction. Thank you!
