Storming heaven for Olga



You probably remember the sweet face of Olga. For those of you who didn't catch my post on her last month, she is an orphan in Eastern Europe with down syndrome.

Last month she was blessed with a family that felt the call to adopt her. Our bloggy friends raised nearly $13,000 for her adoption fund.

Unfortunately, the family had to back out of the adoption leaving Olga, who just turned 5 to possibly be sent to an institution for life. Yes, you read that correctly institutionalized! In Eastern Europe, at 4 or 5 years of age orphans are moved from a baby house to an institution forever forgotten by their society.

Our hearts are definitely on God's call for each of us to care about orphans. We ask you to lift this sweet girl up in prayer that her forever family comes forward and rescues her immediately.

Please share with your blog friends, facebook friends, work friends, prayerful friends, anyone who will listen. And Pray, Pray, Pray!!!

It is not the will of your Father that one of these little ones should perish. Matthew 18:14

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves. Proverbs 31:8 & 9

I remain prayerful and full of hope that Olga's forever family is out there and God will reveal them soon ... it just has to happen ... look at that precious face?

Oh I just want her! I wish I had enough money to go back, I'd take her in a heartbeat!
