Orphan Sunday 11/4/2012

‎”Orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they’re not real before you hold them in your arms. But once you do, everything changes.” (David Platt)


Update on Irina

We were recently notified that we had our day in district court. We won, then lost the appeal. Now it goes to the supreme court. We are now more famous in Eastern Europe than we are here at home. Please keep praying for us and this little girl. If the supreme court does not overturn this horrible decision by the MOJ to deny this child a family, it means they will have all the power to make decisions regarding these children that is completely outside the laws of their country. A win means they cannot use these children as a play of power. They have decided this child is disposable, and are going to see that she is disposed of. It breaks my heart to even think this archaic way of thinking can decide the fate of any child, not just Irina. We need a lot of prayers for her to be able to come home to us.
