Tori has a family!  God moved in the heart of a skeptical, doubting and distrustful director and Tori is coming home.  The Burmans got to meet her, love on her, count her fingers, look into her eyes, marvel at how fearfully and wonderfully made she is and laugh outright that God won.  He won.  Tori will be a daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece and most importantly a Child of the King.  Her biased Mom has declared that she is smart, beautiful and BIG.  As soon as she posts pictures on her blog (which is private),  I will steal them and post on here!

God won people.  Not just for Tori.  But now Masha and Eddie and all the other sweet ones at that institute and that orphanage have HOPE.  They are no longer bound by the past laws of communism that say that a child who is disabled should be sent away forever.  They can be freed from the chains that bind them.  Free.


Masha needs a family.  SHE HAS 17,000.00 IN HER GRANT FUND.  That means that if someone goes and gets her they only need to raise another 6-8,000.00 dollars.  That is EASY because our God owns the cattle on a thousand hills....

She smiles - she talks - she blows bubbles and plays peek-a-boo.  She is SMART!  She is full of life despite the fact that she has been mistreated, set aside and deemed unadoptable.

Eddie needs a family.  HE HAS 16,000 IN HIS GRANT FUND.  That means only 7-8,000.00 is left to raise.  PEANUTS. 

He is NOT a favorite.  He has spent his life stuck in a crib - often in a dark room - alone.  He doesn't know what it is to be held and loved.  Just a smile in his direction will light up his lonely face. 

Both of these babes need out.

If someone were to go get both of them together - the adoption is covered.

Money is NOT an issue.

Yes, they are needy.  Yes, they will require a tremendous amount of time and love to heal the hurting that is deep within their souls.  Yes.  But our God is a God who can heal the wounds inflicted by man. 

He can.

But they need families.

So do so many others. 

Families who will step up and take the plunge.  Despite the quaking knees and pounding hearts.  Despite the clammy fingers and the uncontrollable shaking. 

Families willing to go despite the terror of the unknown. 

Families willing to jump - free fall.

Families who have their hands firmly clasped in His Hands.

Trusting.  Believing.

Please Dear Lord - send families!

  8. Thank you Jesus! I will keep praying that Masha and Eddie find their families very very soon.

  9. Isn't it wonderful to see how God is moving when it comes to these precious little ones. I firmly believe we are going to see even bigger things in 2011 when it comes to adoption and these treasures. Hugs

  10. I posted on my FB a link to your blog begging for families!!! And I will post to my blog! Oh how we have prayed that God would move and He has! Now the families need to just step out in faith and DO it!!! Thank you for tirelessly advocating for these precious little loves! Do you happen to know what region they are in...could you email me? Curious if they are in our son's region or

  11. Where is Masha listed on RR? I cannot find her....

    Can you share what region she is from for those of us dealing with age /number of children restrictions?

    Thanks and blessings!!

  12. How does all of this work? They will let you adopt two at a time? Wouldn't it double the cost? Could you email me? We are newly certified foster parents. Would our homestudy count? And fingerprints? And criminal check? Seriously, how long would it take to rescue them? Blessings, Kim
