Twins Denis & Darina—Officially Adopted!

Twins Denis & Darina—Officially Adopted!

Do you remember six-year-old twins Denis and Darina? We asked prayer for them a few months ago after they witnessed the brutal murder of their mother. Because they experienced significant trauma, they became reserved, fearful and mistrusting. They also faced the bleak future of growing up in an orphanage.

We praise God that Denis and Darina have been adopted by the special couple we told you about in April. Because you prayed, generous gifts provided the professional psychological support and medical exams Denis and Darina needed. A tumor-like growth was also removed from Denis’ leg. Thank you!

Denis and Darina are blossoming under their parents' tender care and are transitioning well into their new family. They love to blow bubbles with mom, watch movies with dad, and run around outside with their friends! Denis’ toothless grin says it all—they can be kids again. Thank you for praying them through some difficult days and into a loving family.

An Amazing Family Needs Your Prayers

The world has turned upside down for twins Nastya and Katya (17), and their brother Andrje (13). After their mother recently passed away, they learned that their extended relatives wanted no part in raising them. They were mere hours from being sent to an orphanage when a loving family learned about the situation and opened their hearts and home to these vulnerable teenagers.

Vitaly and Mary believe God has called them to care for orphans and would love to be Nastya, Katya, and Andrje's forever family (as would their other biological and foster kids).
But once the emergency foster placement ends, complicated laws in Ukraine require them to register as a family-style care center in order to keep the children long-term. Once they receive their registration, they can also apply for a monthly stipend that will help provide basic necessities for their children.

If sent to an orphanage, Nastya, Katya, and Andrje (1) may be separated, (2) will keep an "unadoptable" status because they have living relatives and (3) will most likely age out of the system without any permanent support in place. Their passports and official documents will be labeled “orphan”—a word that carries much stigma in Ukraine and can make it difficult for them to succeed after they age out of the system.

Won't you pray with us that God would provide the necessary financial resources for these three teenagers to become permanent members of a family that already loves and cherishes them?

A Miracle of Love in Romania!

A Miracle of Love in Romania!

A few years ago, Henry and Diana adopted two siblings, Mark and Renata. 

During the past year, one of our Romanian partners met with this couple many times, discussing such things as how adoption works and God's heart for orphans. About three months ago, Henry and Diana called to tell him they'd decided to adopt again! They all began to pray together and prepare the necessary papers.

When Diana and Henry met Sonia, a four-year-old who had been rejected a few times by other families because of mouth problems, it didn't take long for them to fall in love with her and decide to adopt her. They brought her home on April 5. 

Since she's been in their home, Sonia's health has visibly improved: she has even started to speak. The doctors don't have any explanation for this, but we do: we believe that God's love, expressed by His people, can heal. Praise God with us that He has not only begun to heal little Sonia; He has given her a loving, Christian forever family.

Join the Prayer Movement

At the present time, 153 million children in our world are orphans. If these children were counted as a single nation, they would compose the seventh largest nation on earth. Join us in praying that God provides a home for each of these precious little ones who long for a loving family!
