He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy,
carrying sheaves with him. Psalm 126:6

Just One (or Two) or (or Ten)

A bunch of new kids were listed today who live in the same place as my Nora.   Oh, my heart!    

Back when God first started me onto this journey to Nora, the first child I saw was sweet Hasya who is being adopted.  She is 14 and weighs 14 pounds!  I was stunned and horrified!   

Every child introduced tears at my heart.  They need rescuing so badly!  I want to take all of them home, but I know that is neither possible nor God's will.  He is mighty to raise up a family for each of his children.  I may not be able to adopt them all, but I can advocate for them.  So here are all of the children I am aware of who are waiting to be adopted from an orphanage in Eastern Europe.  You can click on their names to learn more about them.  Please feel free to share, repost, pray, give, adopt!


Sweet little Beacon needs a family soon!  He is 11 years old and weighs only 23 pounds.  I have four boys a little older than him.  Their weight varies from just under 100 pounds to over 140!  23 pounds, friends!  God, please save him!


Sweet Penny may look young but she is actually 11.  She should be rocking out to Justin Bieber and sassing her mommy, not lying in crib wasting away!  She obviously has so much potential.  Wouldn't she make a beautiful daddy's girl?


Handsome Payton is almost eight years old.  He is smaller than my one-year-old by a good eight pounds.  It looks like Payton's main problem is just that he has been starved.  In a family he could grow into a fine young man.  He just needs a chance!


She is a gem, isn't she!   Look at those gorgeous curls.  And my goodness, she suffers from intestinal distress.  Doesn't half of the US?  I imagine that could be fixed right up over here.


Oh, friends, sweet Marsha.  Look at how swollen her head is.  This is so easily fixed here, but she is laying in a crib suffering and no one comforts her.  Please, dear God, send Marsha a family quickly!


Oh, my goodness, look at her little arms.  How she is crying out for a mommy!  Bianca is seven and is way smaller than my one-year-old.


Beautiful Lana is still so young.  Interventions will work wonders!


  1. I saw these too, yesterday, and my heart just broke. I'm surprised more families have not stepped forward with the interest there is in this orphanage. Lana especially....so many are open to DS and she could thrive and be saved! Thank you for posting this!

  2. Hi Lydia! Thank you for bringing hope to these precious children by sharing them with the world!

    Where is little Lana listed? She is such a sweetie-pie!

    (By the way, I also have a blog with the name "Eight is Not Enuf". Preach it sister! =)

    1. From another mom: Lana is with Children's House International - contact Nina Thompson - I had contact her several weeks ago and she very much wants to see Lana adopted. The last I heard there was not a family able to commit - but she is beautiful!
