How can you choose who you save?

God has put these two children in my heart and I won't rest until they are safe! No one has ever inquired about them! Please help!

This is little Moira. We've heard she is in a laying room. Not a good place to be. It's hard to imagine what she is going through. She has cleft palate and arthrogryposis. For some reason, her caregivers at the orphanage have decided she shouldn't be with the other children. She will get no love, no stimulation, not much food and no future. She will be laying in a crib until she is four and then she will be transferred to a mental institution where she will probably quickly waste away. 80% of children who are transferred to mental institutions die within the first year!!!


  1. Arthrogryposis is very treatable. It can be a lifelong condition, but with good physical therapy and some surgeries, it can be helped.
    I am praying hard for Elizaveta, who is almost 9, to get a family ASAP. I feel so bad for her, she has been waiting for many years for a family.

  2. Looks like you are off to a good start with your blog.
