Still Fatherless

This morning a family stood before a judge to adopt this sweet treasure.   The judge said no.



Here is why: 

Danil's adoption was denied because under new U law, children under age of 5 cannot be eligible for adoption UNLESS they have a special need. The list of special needs is specific, and DOES include Down syndrome. Danil has MOSAIC Down syndrome, and since the word Mosaic is not on the list, the judge deemed him unadoptable.

They love him.  He has NO future in his country.  They are going to appeal and we need to pray.  We need to pray for this fatherless little boy that the powers that be in that country will allow this adoption to proceed.  Their blog has gone private to protect the process.  Please pray for the family that God's peace will cover them during this time.  Pray for their facilitators that they would be wise in the way they proceed.  Pray for those who hear and will render a decision.  Pray church.  This little guy has a family who has crossed the ocean for him, fallen completely in love with him and desperately wants to bring him home.

  1. We will be praying! Seems like there's a lack of common sense at play here. How soon do they get to appeal?

  13. Argh, this is just making me sick with grief at the thought of this little guy not getting to go home. I'm praying and trusting that in the Father who loves him more than we do, that HE will bring Danil home and make clear the intent of the law to the judge.

  14. Oh no! I've been following their blog and excitedly went to check this morning because I knew they had court today...and it was private which worried me. I am so sad to see this :( Absolutely terrible, especially since his birth family is involved and so badly wants to see him adopted as well.

I borrowed your post and put it on my blog and directed it back here to your blog. I hope thats okay. I really want to get the word out to other Believers!) Hugs ~ jo
