…we’re watching the doors of the Pleven baby house open up and the children come out!

This week the doors opened to let one little boy go with his new daddy–the first child with special needs to be adopted after Katie! His family has chosen to remain anonymous, but his mama has become a friend to me over the months since we first connected last August. Could you pray for a safe journey home for little Niko and his daddy?
Two families spent the week in Pleven visiting their treasures!
To read about Tom Archer’s visits with his three boys this week, please visit the Archers’ blog. Jacob, Noah, and Moses are three of the children I was granted permission to see and hold last August. What joy to see them interacting with each other and their new daddy!
And Grace Knuth wrote eloquently on her blog about a remarkable week of visits with her sweet Samantha.
Could you pray for these four children, that the remainder of their adoption processes would be speedy so they can get on with the business of learning to live and love and grow and progress in their loving homes? Thank you, friends!
There’s more big news from Pleven this week!
Guess who’s graduated to the My Family Found Me page on Reece’s Rainbow?
Hallelujah! It’s true! Sweet Sarah finally has a family! What a treasure she is and how wonderful it will be to see her grow and progress once she’s safely home!
That means there are only three little ones with special needs from Pleven available for adoption right now!
Little Alyssa, waiting for a family for almost nine years. Alyssa received a good baba, and now she is able to be adopted! Please pray that her family steps forward for her quickly! Email for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
Little Gabby, turning three years old this year. I can hardly wait to find out who will see past her diagnoses to the precious little girl she is! For more information, please email Shelley Bedford at email@example.com.
And tiny Sam, still waiting! There is more than one family who wants to adopt Sam, but none of them have been able to commit yet. Please keep praying for Sam! I’m so eager to see which family God picks for this bright-eyed boy! For more information about adopting him, please call (360) 383-0623 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
One more prayer request! It’s another crucial time for the Pleven baby house–
A new director for the Pleven baby house should be appointed in the next couple of weeks.
Please pray fervently that the new director has the children’s best interests at heart!
The formula that the visiting families took to Pleven this week was turned down. Pray that common sense will prevail regarding donations of outrageously expensive and urgently-needed specialty formula from the United States!
Thank you, friends, for praying so faithfully! Thank you to everyone who is helping the Nurse/Baba fund to grow! God is using your obedience to get His work done! May He bless you for it as you are blessing the children!
