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

More Waiting Children

A few days ago I posted about the children waiting for homes from an orphanage in Eastern Europe whose needs do not seem quite as severe as others.  Today I am going to advocate for the children who are bedridden or whose needs are more complex.  These children are just as deserving of homes!  They need moms and dads who are willing to say that the lives of these children are worth setting aside earthly pleasures.  Build up your treasure in heaven!  These precious ones are the least of these of whom Jesus spoke (but in all honesty, so are you and I.  Didn't we need to be adopted by our heavenly Father?)

If you are interested in any of the children below, please contact Shelley Bedford at shele337@gmail.com.


What a little lovie!  Brandi is left in her crib all day.   She needs a mama and daddy who would treasure her.  What a joy to watch her reach milestone after milestone. 

Garnet truly is a jewel!  Look at her beautiful smile despite the fact that she has been neglected and abused for all of her 10 years.  Garnet is very smart!  More pictures and a video are available.


I must admit that Harvey breaks my heart.  He looks so sad and alone in his crib.  He needs a mama to rock him and sing to him and love him.  Look past his exterior!  There is a little boy in there!  One who deserves to be told he is a precious child of God! 


The next time you start to complain that life isn't fair to you, please think of little Thad and say a prayer.  Thad was taken away from his birthparents because he was abused so badly his brain was damaged.  As if that wasn't enough hurt for one lifetime, he was then placed into a very bad orphanage where he was neglected and left to rot.  Imagine ransoming this little boy from all life has dealt him!  What a lasting legacy to leave behind - rescuing this child and giving him the first taste of love he has ever known.


Handsome Kramer is eight year old.  He could make such strides with a family's love and support!  He just needs someone to take him out of his crib and provide the therapy he so desperately needs!


Precious Presley!  She has been neglected for three years.  A family will make all the difference for Presley, but they will need a lot of patience and faith. 
And as always, don't forget about Penny and Payton!


  1. Thad breaks my heart! I wish I could bring him home right now!

  2. I am in love with Gage and Presley! We are strongly considering adopting from Pleven, and have looked into it by speaking with RR and Shelley. However, my husband is not 100% on board for doing it now. Will you pray for us and we discern God's plan for our family? -Kristie Du Sablon
