God said “YES!” to our prayers! Three tiny girls from Katie’s former orphanage made it to Tokuda Hospital today!
Yes, I said “girls.”
Butler has an intestinal bug and is in isolation at the orphanage, so they looked for a third child who is suffering extreme malnutrition and in rough shape, and chose Kolina.
Remember Kolina? She turned nine years old in December.
She’s being adopted by my friend Linda Duncan along with another little girl from a different orphanage.
Liliana, Sophia, and Kolina are now safely in the Tokuda Hospital in Bulgaria.
Liliana, who sat on Reece’s Rainbow for years, passed over, unchosen.
Sophia, who would have stayed unregistered and invisible to the end of her days, had she not appeared briefly on a Youtube video which was seen by her adoptive mom.
Kolina, who until the end of last year was also invisible and not available for adoption.
You know, if someone has a sturdily Biblical understanding of the world, they are not amazed to hear about cruelty, bullying of the weak by the strong, selfishness, hard-heartedness, corruption.
Compelled to resist the evil? Yes!
But surprised? No. Evil is a given in a fallen world, and to be expected. Those who reject this reality do not understand the nature of mankind or its history.
According to all reasonable expectation in the normal course of events, these three girls with Down syndrome would die in obscurity, unnoticed and unloved.
According to the assertions of many consistent materialists, they should never have been allowed to live at all.
They certainly would not be in the best hospital in their country, being tenderly examined and cared for by the top pediatricians in their country, free of charge.
They would not have families who love them with all their hearts and can’t wait to bring them home.
That is the mercy of God.
And that, my friends, is truly amazing.
