…there is a spiritual battle slated to take place in the Eastern European country we did not name.
Out of the more than 30 accredited adoption agencies in that country, only 3 or 4 handle special-needs adoptions. These agencies are getting a lot of work compared with the agencies who only have healthy baby girls listed. And since the majority view adoption as business rather than ministry, i.e. they care more about money than they do about the children in need, they have become jealous, and are trying to change the way special needs adoptions are done. The changes would make special needs adoptions more difficult or impossible. Already, the government has stopped providing files of waiting special-needs children to the special needs agencies.
Here’s a snippet of the email from T***, a Christian woman who lives there and is an attorney for special-needs adoptions~
“…it is my firm belief that it is all a work of the enemy. During the last couple of years many children with special needs have been placed in loving homes and have made progress which is unbelievable. Many of them would have already died. I am not exaggerating. It is reality and many of you know it is a fact. The devil doesn’t like it. It is against his plans and desire. He wants to hurt and to destroy. The more the Lord’s plan succeeds, the madder satan gets.”
She and another colleague requested a meeting with the government official who is responsible for international adoptions. This meeting is on the calendar for Monday, November 22nd, one week from today.
“Please, pray hard, starting from now, for that meeting to bring only glory to God and to solve the problems here. Please, please, please, pray that the enemy would be bound and that he won’t be able to keep hostage all the kids who are waiting for a home of their own. Please pray that the [government] officials will keep supporting the agencies which want the special needs program to continue and succeed.”
We’re praying and I hope some of you will, too!
