A Home for Olga

God can do anything, you know - far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams...
Ephesians 3:20

Almost one month ago, I found out about a precious little girl with cerebral palsy who desperately needs a family to CHOOSE her! This little girl will turn 4 in one month, and at that time, she will be transferred to an institution and have little hope to ever be adopted. This is the practice in this particular Eastern European country for children with special needs who are not adopted by their fourth birthday. In one of my earlier posts, "A Little Girl Named Olga", I include a gut-wrenching video link from a mental institution in a similar country that gives a picture of what life is like for these children when they age out of their "Baby House." It is a tragedy!

Very recently, I found out that Olga STILL NEEDS a family. A family that was pursuing her is no longer considered eligible to adopt her. Her birthday is December 31st, and her time is running out. The good news, however, is that because of all the individuals advocating for her little life, she now has over $7000 in grant money to help the family who is led to adopt her!

Will you take a look at her new picture? Can you believe this beautiful, tiny girl is still waiting?

You can see her profile on Reece's Rainbow 
or you can go to www.xmaswarrior.blogspot.com to find out more information.

Adoption is hard.
From the very beginning, we were told that it's not for the faint of heart. 
We are daily finding this out, and we are still in the early stages of our own adoption journey. 

But it is worth it, so very, very worth it! 

Will you open your eyes and open your heart to the desperate cry of these little ones, like Olga. 

I'm praying tonight, even as a type this, that the Lord will provide a family for this little girl! 

Psalm 68:6 says that "God makes a home for the lonely."

Could it be your home?

  1. Just reading this breaks my heart! We are in the middle of our own adoption right now... A seven year old boy in China. We are waiting for our LOA right now. Seeing this beautiful girl has sparked something in me. I am praying she finds a forever family. Our God is a big God and I truly believe He can do this! I am spreading the word on her behalf and pray something awesome happens soon! Thanks for sharing this! As a believer we have an obligation to "defend the cause of the fatherless!"
