A Family for Milana! 

Milana was abandoned at an orphanage in Ukraine when she was only 1 month old. Orphanages there are typically overcrowded, often housing up to 250 children. This results in poor nutrition, unsanitary living conditions, abuse, insufficient access to medical care, and a complete lack of positive adult interaction. Milana craved to have a Mama and Papa—a family to call her own. 

When Alexander and Yana met Milana at the orphanage, they immediately knew she was meant to be their daughter. The only thing that stood in the way of Milana’s adoption was a furnished bedroom in their home and funds for her medical expenses. Thanks to you, these needs were quickly met and Milana was officially adopted! Milana now has her Mama and Papa and will grow up knowing the love of family. No assigned “value” can be placed on the worth of Milana’s adoption. Milana will grow up with two loving parents that cherish her and will see her through life’s ups and downs. Your generous giving towards adoptions like Milana’s is not only changing that child’s life, but their family as well.  

Thank you!

A Family for Othniel!

“God is so good, God is so good, God is so good, He’s so good to me.” Singing along with family, his brother playing the piano and his father leading the melody, Othniel (pictured second from the left) bounces up and down in his sister’s arms – the perfect picture of love and family. But just one year ago, this scene was nearly impossible to imagine. 

As family of nine, Sam Raj and his wife Mahima thought their family was complete. But as Sam Raj says, there is never a full stop (.) always a comma (,) when it comes to family, and that became a reality for their own family when they met Othniel. 

Othniel was born without eyes and a severe case of cerebral palsy. He was given up to an orphanage in India shortly after he was born. There, his special needs were not attended to and he missed many developmental milestones. Othniel lay on his back in crib, alone, surviving on only bottles of milk. 

At three years old, Othniel could not speak, stand, walk, and eat solid food.

When Sam Raj and Mahima met Othniel at the orphanage, they knew he was meant to be their son. Naming him Othniel (meaning God is my strength), Sam Raj and Mahima prayerfully adopted Othniel into their family. A miracle in and of itself, as they had to get special permission from the local government because they had already adopted so many children.

Through your giving, Othniel’s adoption was fully funded! 

Othniel’s adoption was vital to his survival. Once Othniel started receiving care from his family, he began standing, walking with the help of his family members, eating solid foods, and even singing! Thank you for making this adoption a reality for Othniel. The words of Othniel’s song ring true – God is so good.
