About Me

My photo
We have lived in Romania for 16 years now. We have 6 kids. The top photo of our family is the day we met the twins, just before their 4th birthday. We were granted custody of them on their 5th birthday.

Casa Alba

I have been thinking about the other 17 orphans at Casa Alba where our twins are and thinking of how some of the older ones feel when someone gets adopted and they don't. First of all many of them aren't adoptable and it is hard for them to understand that. Not being adoptable means, your parents can't or won't care for you AND they won't sign off their rights as parents so you can be adopted. I know this transition will be hard for the other orphans there too.
We would love to give each child a Bible story coloring book and their own box of crayons. If anyone especially in the Greenville, SC area is interested in purchasing a book and crayons for a child you could get them to my parents by the first week of April before they come here. If you want to do this let me know and I can tell you how to get in touch with my parents. Crayons here are quite expensive for a little pback of 12, that is why we don't buth them here and coloring books are hard to find here too.
Please add to your prayer list the plight of the orphans here in Romania. Pray first of all that the leaders will change the adoption laws, that the people in office will understand how important a family is for a child, and that more teaching can be done to offer families help when they need it instead of them abandoning their children.
