"I prayed for this child and the LORD has granted me what I asked of Him" 1Samuel 1:27

Tuesday, January 25, 2011


Tonight while most of us sleep, a very important meeting will be taking place in Russia concerning the lives of 3 little ones. One woman....one Judge....will say whether these little ones will remain alone, unloved and hidden from the rest of the world for the rest of their lives OR whether they will be able to go with their new mommas and daddies to homes filled with love and acceptance, brothers and sisters, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Never, ever, to be all alone again.
These families will be at the mercy of their facilitator who will be speaking the words needed to convince the judge that the adoption is in the best interest of these children. You see, in the world in which they live, they are damaged goods. And even in our country, they probably would have been aborted. But to these families, they are priceless treasures. They are wanted and loved. And to God, they are His chosen little ones.
So, if you happen to wake up during tonight, or maybe you are willing to set your alarm for @2:00 A.M. and purposely get up and get on your knees and pray for these kiddos and their families. There has never been a child with DS adopted out of this region. If the judge approves these adoptions, it could open the door for many more who wait. When one of the families were at this orphanage for their first visit, they were told that they were the first visitors to the orphanage in SEVEN YEARS.  Ninety-eight children labeled as "damaged" by their society, and put away as far out of sight and mind as possible.
If one of these were your child, what would you do?????

One of them IS mine. Not in this orphanage, but in the region right next to this one. And yes, i'm scared for my little one. I'm afraid that this one judge's decision might affect the outcome of our own adoption. Please pray for these 3 children and their families. Pray for eyes to be opened and hearts to be changed. Pray for all these little ones that spend day after day with no one to hold them and love them and tell them they are perfect just the way they are......just the way God made them.  PLEASE PRAY.

  1. Kim, I am beyond excited to learn that your family has found Myron. Myron touched my heartstrings when I first saw him in November 2010 on the RR site. Andrea Roberts emailed me to let me know that his family had found him and I have been anxiously awaiting to find out who his family is. I am just praising God! I will diligently follow your blog and lift you up in prayer through your adoption journey. I am so happy for him I don't know what to do.
